Switzerland, she said, was keen to return the money deposited by the late dictator. In fact, if the Kinshasa government doesn't set the legal. During the crisis General Mobutu led a coup which removed Prime Minister Lumumba from power and placed President Kasavubu in control of the country in In , just after UN forces left the region, Mobutu returned and became President of the Congo, which he renamed Zaire in (Nzongola-Ntalaja: ). Over the next thirty years of.

  This time, however, the end was near. After a brief stop in Togo, Zaire's ousted dictator ended up in Rabat, Morocco, where he died of prostate cancer in September of that year. The story of Mobutu's demise is recounted in In the Footsteps of Mr. Kurtz, written by Michela Wrong, who covered Zaire and Africa for the Financial Times for six years. Mobutu Sese Seko, the Zairian leader toppled in May after nearly 32 years of despotic rule that enriched him and his friends but left his country in shambles, has died in Morocco, Radio France.
