DRC sparks and sparklers.
The Democratic Republic of Congo is hoping to add electricity to the diamonds it will give Zimbabwe in part payment for President Mugabe's military support in the DRC's ongoing war against rebel movements. Congo's Societe Nationale d'Electricite (SNEL) is offering to supply an additional 100 megawatts to the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA) when the Congo's main power station and the high-voltage line to southern Africa are fully on stream. Congo President Laurent Kabila has already offered to give a diamond mine each to Zimbabwe and Namibia in part payment for their military help.
