WAS MOBUTU KUKU ? WITH HIS HEAD CUT OFF on SET of TWO
Mobutu Sese Seko Kuku also known as Joseph-Desiré Mobutu was the President / Dictator of the Democratic Republic of the Congo ( renamed Zaire in 1971 ) from 1965 until his death in 1997. He was put into power primarily by the USA ( mostly CIA ) & Belgium and, in the process, gained an enormous fortune ( $15 Billion ) through blackmail, exploitation, embezzlement and corruption, leading many to call his rule a “ kleptocracy ”.
In 1997 there was a revolution lead by Laurent Kabila which ousted all vestiges of the Mobutu regime, including getting rid of his image from the money. Because of high inflation none of the money retained any value including these 5 & 10 Francs with Mobutu’s head cut out by some ticked off supporter of the new regime.
