I don't know a great deal of african history, but my understanding is that most of the conflicts like in the congo are the after shocks of colonization/decolonization.
The african people of countries like the congo fought colonization, then when they achieved independence were not able to form a stable government, leaving a vaccum of government in which a despot can step into control by killing (literally) off decent.

I like to poke fun at the government as much as the next guy, but when you look at the hell some of these countries are in; it makes me thankful that we have a stable government which the people by and large support and are willing to defend.
