The study has been conducted in order to gain an understanding on t he causes of the complexities of sustainable peace in the D.R.C. What is the ro le of the main actors in the DRC peace process? Secondly factors leading to the elusive search for peace in DRC. Finally we will look at the DRC history from 1960 to 2002 from the socio-economic and political aspect to the government by thieves and dictatorial leadership. Series of violent conflict started with the rise into power from Laurent Kabila till the succession of his son Joseph Kabila. They are various causes that led to the conflicts in the DRC, which were caused by unlawful succession of its leaders, lack of political will of its leaders to serve the people of Congo, ethnicity and another big problem it is the size of the country causing a problem to central government in exercising its autonomy fully. Fina lly t he DRC mineral riches have been attracting external forces that came and exploited illegally the resources of the country. This further fueled the conflict. The persistence of the war brought about threat to political, economical and social stability to the Congolese government. This study focuses on factors leading to the elusive search for peace in DRC. The study further found that solid minerals have been linked to recent African conflicts. The center of our argument here will be, to analyze the impact of natural resources on the DRC conflict and to analyze the role of MNC's in the DRC conflict: peace broken or encouraging or sustaining the conflict.
