KINSHASA, CONGO - FEBRUARY 28: Workers for the Congolese state Telephone Company examining hundreds of broken phone lines wires on February 28, 2002 on a busy street corner in central Kinshasa. They are trying to match the broken lines to fix them. The Congolese economy and infrastructure is in total disarray after 40 years of independence from Belgium. The country was fleeced by the former strongman Mobuto who together with his government stole most foreign aid money and the proceeds from the wealth of minerals in the country..(Photo: Per-Anders Pettersson/ Getty Images)...
