Mobutu Sese Seko (66), former president of Zaire, died from prostate cancer while in Rabat, Morocco, three months after the end of his nearly 32-year reign. Sese Seko was exiled to Rabat after he was ousted from power by Laurent Kabila's rebel movement, the Alliance of Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Congo-Zaire.
