Democratic Republic of Congo in crisis as president clutches to power

08:46

The Democratic Republic of Congo is experiencing one of its most violent periods in nearly two decades, a humanitarian crisis rarely covered by the media. NBC Left Field went to the Kasai region and saw alleged evidence of crimes against thousands of Congolese people. We spoke to an ex-militia leader about what led to an uprising against the government in 2017, as well as child soldiers about why they took up arms. The United Nation warns that the humanitarian situation in the DRC is at par with Iraq, Syria, and Yemen—all while the country's president, Joseph Kabila, refused to step down after his term ended in 2016.
