because they have a bad water shortage.

Congo doesn't have shortage of water and food this answer is not right. every where you go there is water and foods without counting the minerals resources if the political and economic system was right Congo could have been one of the richest country in the world. i would'nt say Congo is a poor country but Congo's leaders are poors minded.
