2 We’d been in Zaïre a month, training Mobutu’s military to fire their weapons and use explosives without killing themselves – or us. We’d put all that on hold for a day or two when trouble brewed in the capital. Our students were needed to quell opposition on the streets. Mobutu had been calling the shots, controlling a country the size of Western Europe for nearly two decades now.

He lifted his arse, fished in his back pocket and handed me a battered leatherbound book. ‘Go on,’ he said. ’ I flicked open the cover. ‘It’s the New fucking Testament. ’ I suddenly felt like I’d been locked in the same cell as a double-glazing salesman.
