Abstract


The article reveals interethnic conflicts in Africa as one of the main components of the modern political crises in the continent. The author examines the most striking instances of ethnic rivalry in the Democratic Republic of Congo rooting in the distant past. The tribes of Lendu, Khema, Khutu and Tutsy are taken as units for research. Ethnic discords are considered in the mutual connection with the lust for power and struggle for natural resources.
