Is this Libya’s gold in London?

I was born and raised in Africa. Our history books distorted the truth about the “respectable” leaders, like Cecil John Rhodes. They didn’t teach us about the plunder — a plunder that never stopped.

According to the World Bank, the citizens of Luxembourg, Qatar, Norway, Singapore and Switzerland enjoy some of the highest household average salaries in the world. Luxembourg, for example, has an annual household average salary of $91,388 (I presume USD).
And take for example, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) — a country ravaged by conflict. With a population of 75 million, it has the lowest household average salary in Africa — a mere $422. (Does this mean an average of $1.15 per day for the family?)
