wait was he doing this for a good reason? it said he was trying to infuse it into the congo.. so like for what purpose? .. because i cannot see someone with the heart of Mutumbo doing anything for personal gain like that

Just sounds like things went wrong, not that it was by his design.

Edit: Nevermind, whole thing is screwed up.

I don't get it what's wrong with what he did?

What is this blasphemy? It doesn't make any sense for him to do this. He donated most of his own money to charity, why would he want to initiate or even get involved in an illegal gold scheme?

The article stated that he wanted to "infuse" the money into the Congo.

He is the most moral man in sports, I doubt this is true.

I went by the title that was given in the article, I suppose I could use the title that reads, Mutombo’s role in $10 million 
gold scam only now coming to light.

He was "smuggling" gold in so the money would go to the people in the Congo instead of fueling corruption and militias. Did anyone bother to read the article? It's not ever that long guys.

He smuggled in order to help the people of the Congo.

I don't see the moral issue
