Click below to hear Congolese cartoonist Thembo Kash: how mangoes symbolize conflict zone minerals, like coltan and cassiterite – minerals that Rwanda has been accused of stealing from the DRC.

This is the second of six cartoons that Kash is unveiling exclusively for RNW.

His work is frequently seen in the DRC newspaper Le Potentiel.
