|History of the DRC|
The Republic of Zaire ( /zɑːˈɪər/; French: République du Zaïre; ) was the name of the state that existed between 27 October 1971 and 17 May 1997, currently named Democratic Republic of the Congo. Founded by Mobutu Sese Seko, the name of Zaire derives from the Portuguese word "zaire", itself an adaptation of the Kongo word nzere or nzadi ("river that swallows all rivers").
