    Mobutuism was the official state ideology in Zaire incorporating "nationalism," "revolution," and "authenticity. Revolution was described as a "truly national revolution, essentially pragmatic," which called for "the repudiation of both capitalism and communism," favoring "national revolution", and purging of European culture from Africa. Mobutuism also sought to replace Christianity in Zaire with a religious devotion to Mobutu as Messiah. Mobutu at the smallest tried to look less of a CIA-funded puppet and more of a Black Nationialist.

    History

    In Zaire, now the modern-day Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mobutu Sese Seko got into power as a military general by assassinating the socialist prime minister Patrice Lumuba in the 1961 coup backed by Belgium and the CIA. Upon the Congo crisis, (which started the country's turmoil not long after independence), many separatists and socialist insurgencies took power in certain areas of the country. But to the intervention of the UN, the republic was vanquished in no time.

    Elections in the Congo took place on March of 1965 when the Convention Nationale Congolaise party won the majority vote. However, Mobuto disagreed that Évariste Kimba should be prime minister, and planned a successful coup that inaugurated himself as dictator of the Congo, thus ending the Congo conflict and restoring (some) stability. Upon the rest of the 1960s, Mobutu started to introduce a policy where many things were Africanized, especially city names like Stanleyville being renamed Kisigani.

    On 27 October 1971, he renamed the country Zaire, after the Zaire river.

    Personally, Mobutu was evil as hell and was willing to silence opponents, but because many of his views were anti-communist such as supporting the Portuguese in Angola (and as said helping kill Patrice, who was a socialist), USA and Apartheid South Africa were willing to support Zaire for the rest of the Cold War .

    However, Mobutu Sese Mobutu's rule would be started to have been tampered, because MPLA had now won independence for Angola, and wanted to topple Zaire. They then funded former separatists in the Katanga province known as the Congolese National Liberation Front, and sent two failed incursions in the country to overthrow Zaire.

    By the time the Cold War ended, the USA stopped supporting Mobutu and started to isolate his country.

    In Rwanda however, the Tutsis felt oppressed by the Hutu government and started to rebel. As a result, this led to a horrible event; the Rwandan Genocide. This led to many Tutsis fleeing to Zaire. Hutu extremists, ALIRball and Interahamweball also fled to Zaire, and used refugee camps to try to build a coalition to invade Rwanda. To reduce a rebellion by the Tutsis, started allowing the Hutus to shelter in eastern Zaire. But this only gave the Tutsi-dominated government in Rwandaball an excuse to invade the region. Uganda & Burundi, all three of which which Mobutu had supported opposition groups against in the past.

    Congolese Laurent Kabila believed that by siding with the invaders and rebels, he can end Zaire, bring a democratic state, and improve living conditions in the Congo. Well, Zaire's dictator had been dying anyways. Alliance of Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Congoball was created and operated in the eastern portion of Zaire, and overtime, the more the war went on the more territory Kabila helped foreign invaders seize. Zaire had to rely on mercenaries from around many countries in Africa with some from Europe, with the promise of giving them access to African resources. The White Legion was made up with former Yugoslavia, defended Kisangani until it fell. Months after, Angola started dropping in troops near the capital. Eventually, Kabila and his allies reached the Congo and the the Democratic Republic of the Congo was proclaimed. To avoid capture, Mobutu flees to Morocco, where he dies a few months after.

    After Mobutu's death

    After Mobutu Sese Seko's death, his son Nzanga Mobutu took on the Mobutist movement, but not officially. He founded the Neo-Mobutist Union of Mobutuist Democrats, which claims to be the successor to his father's party, the Popular Movement of the Revolution. The Union of Mobutuist Democrats is very Conservative.

    Beliefs

    The beliefs of Mobutism are defined in the Manifesto of N'sele.

    Since November 24, 1965, the advent of the Second Republic, a revolution worthy of our great nation, is taking place in our country.

    The M.P.R. intends that it can be carried out:
    - respect for democratic freedoms,

    improving conditions for farm workers, increasing individual output through technical inputs, organizing production, sales and marketing of products at reasonably remunerative prices stop the exodus of people to the big cities by improving living conditions in rural areas: creation of roads, water supply, micro-electric power plants, the creation of houses of culture and organization of centers for young farmers. Exalting the role of the farmer in the Nation: the M.P.R. asserts that farmers and rural farmers and rural dwellers should no longer feel separate from the Nation. They must participate in the national revolution. The importance of their economic role must insure that they receive an honest reward for their work.

    -that the union organization grouping all workers be involved in planning studies in order to ensure a balanced expansion of production and the satisfaction of collective and individual needs.
    -that the plan constitutes a general policy for that of a free society, which implies social, educational, cultural, artistic and scientific plans, reconciling the demands of material progress with those of the self-fulfillment of men and women throughout the country.

PROCLAIMS THAT ITS AIM IS TO FREE ZAIRIANS FROM ALL FORMS OF SERVITUDE AND TO ENSURE THEIR PROGRESS BY BUILDING A REPUBLIC. A TRULY SOCIAL AND TRULY DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC..

    II. HISTORICAL PREAMBLE

    Before 1960, the country was under colonial rule. Zairians were essentially regarded as cheap labor to keep the system running. A system in which all the profits belonged to a handful of foreigners, and all the pain and all the hardships were the prerogative of the nationals. This system, condemned by the whole world, was attacked by the lifeblood of the nation itself. Popular uprisings, springing up in all parts of the country, drew bloody and merciless repression, but the energy of the people. Maintaining the demand for independence through all the difficulties and diversions led to success. In June 1960, much sooner than had been expected, our country gained independence.

    A large part of the country was ravaged during this bloody episode. Thousands of human lives, immense material losses, a difficult rebellion from 1964 to 1965. The end of the rebellion enabled General Mobutu Sese Seko, Commander-in-Chief of the national armed forces, to demonstrate his political acumen. He proclaimed a pardon for the misguided rebels and surrendered. It was then that calm returned, the unrepentant secessionist politician who was at the head of the government, after having fooled the country with rigged elections, wanted to arrogate supreme power to himself. The national army, which had been the sole support of the state in difficult times, could only accept that, immediately after the battle, the politicians would engage in new struggles, which could only be led by the army. On November 24, 1965, the army decided to intervene. The only organization which, since 1960, under the authority of its leaders, had remained faithful to itself and the ideals of the fatherland, enabled the liquefaction of the State and the birth of a second Republic.
