Zaire (Congo) faced such difficulty upon gaining independence from its colonizers, the Belgians because the latter had not prepared the country for the transition from colonial rule to self-rule at all. Unlike in other African countries like Kenya or Ghana, there were no basic social services or political systems in place that the country could build upon on attaining independence.
