You put the diaeresis on the wrong vowel: it should be on the i, as the proper French form is actually Zaïre:

- https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Za%C3%AFre (in English)
- https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congo_(fleuve) (in French; this is about the river and mentions its old name Zaïre)

With that said, Zaïre is also the Dutch and Afrikaans form of Zaire:

- https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Za%C3%AFre (in Dutch; this is about the former republic)
- https://af.wikipedia.org/wiki/Za%C3%AFre (in Afrikaans; this is also about the former republic) [noted -ed]
