Mouvement de liberation congolais (MLC)
The Mouvement de liberation congolais (MLC), led by businessman Jean-Pierre Bemba, aims to overthrow the Kabila government of Congo [Zaire]. Supported by Uganda, it has been at odds with Rassemblement congolais pour la democratie (RCD)-Goma. The group is particularly active in the Equateur region, where Bemba is based at Lisala. The MLC contains the most militarily organized force of the Congolese forces fighting in the War. Jean Pierre Bemba has access to gold, diamonds, timber and precious stones.
