Patrice Lumumba

Patrice Émery Lumumba (2 July 1925 – 17 January 1961) was a Congolese independence leader and the first legally elected Prime Minister of the Republic of the Congo after he helped win its independence from Belgium in June 1960. Only twelve weeks later, Lumumba's government was deposed in a coup during the Congo Crisis.

EXPOSED: EBOLA VIRUS-EXPIRED POISON PRODUCED BY United States OF AMERICA (USA) TO ASSASSINATE PATRICE LUMUMBA OF CONGO IN 1960 UNDER PRESIDENT DWIGHT EISENHOWER. Amongst the many atrocities of the United States of America in its inordinate quest for universal superpower through the use of draconian policies and direct wars on less powerful nations was the birth of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). Ruminating on the fastest speed the EVD kills Africans and the longevity of the two American contacted with EVD who are receiving treatment in the United States currently, a Spanish priest who also contacted the EVD and still under stable condition, I went into my mini library, browsing through some of my history books in search of little idea about the Deadly Ebola Virus and I came across this book (The State of Africa). It all started in Congo in 1960 when Patrice Lumumba became the first Prime Minister of Congo. Immediately he became the Prime Minister, he told the Belgians in his inaugural speech that "We Are No Lo ...
I agree, but where is Steve Biko who did ask? And where is Patrice Lumumba, who tried to?
Revolution is good but it can get you killed, think of Patrice Lumumba, Martin Lurther, Muammar Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein and Mugabe.
but US started killing the country slowly& H.E PM PATRICE LUMUMBA remains respected than DRC leader!
In case you don't know, the CIA admitted back in 2008 (I think) playing role in the assassination of Patrice Lumumba.
And never forget that Eisenhower ordered the CIA to murder Congolese hero Patrice Lumumba

This act of Terrorism is history but it is also a current event. The actions against Zimbabwe and its President Sir Robert Mugabe is the first phase of the same thing done to Patrice Lumumba. So the acknowledgement and apology isn't worth the paper it was written on.
Jagdish Keshav: Military bases in over 150 countries. Interventions, invasions, bombings. Assassinations of people like Salvador Allende, Dr Ernesto 'Che' Guevara, Patrice Lumumba, Saddam Hussain, Muammar Gaddafi. Attempted ones, one too many, on Fidel Castro. Decimation or total destruction of countries like Iraq and Libya. Latest interference in Syria and Ukraine. Millions dead due to this nation's illegal and inhuman actions in countries such as Vietnam, Korea, Chile, Paraguay, Nicaragua, Honduras, Iraq, Libya, Syria etc. Having lived in the US for about 20 years, I can vouch that the American people are generous, open, big hearted, friendly and embracing. So then why this consistent contradiction from their own govt that have spanned many decades? Answer is quite simple. The people have been lied to by their own govt. The mainstream media, owned by corporations have had a major role in this. All lies based on human rights and democracy. And interventions follow these lies. Results have been deadly for ...
WILL CONGO EVER KNOW THE REAL MEANING OF NORMAL LIFE? What Really Happened in Congo 38 min 47 secs +ADD TO PLAYLIST BUY AUDIO VERSION It didn’t take long for Congo’s transition from Belgian colony to sovereign state to turn ugly. Both the Soviet Union and the United States were keeping a close eye on the mineral-rich country at the heart of Africa when, on June 30, 1960, it gained independence under a democratically elected government headed by Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba. A charismatic nationalist, Lumumba led the only party in parliament with a nationwide, rather than ethnic or regional, base. Within days, however, Congo’s troops mutinied against their all-white officer corps (a holdover from the colonial era) and started terrorizing the European population. Belgium responded by sending forces to reoccupy the country and helping Congo’s richest province, Katanga, secede. The United States, declining the appeals for help from the new Congolese government, instead threw its support behind a UN ...

Six million civilians killed ... Just as many as the number of Jews the Nazis killed during the WW II. Quite a record for a "democracy" ... " What I really got out of these 6 years in Africa was a sense ... that nothing we were doing in fact defended U.S. national security interests very much. We didn't have many national security interests in Bujumbura, Burundi, in the heart of Africa. I concluded that I just couldn't see the point.We were doing things it seemed because we were there, because it was our function, we were bribing people, corrupting people, and not protecting the U.S. in any visible way. I had a chance to go drinking with this Larry Devlin, a famous CIA case officer who had overthrown Patrice Lumumba, and had him killed in 1960, back in the Congo. He was moving into the Africa division Chief. I talked to him in Addis Ababa at length one night, and he was giving me an explanation - I was telling him frankly, 'sir, you know, this stuff doesn't make any sense, we're not saving anybody from an ...
Patrice Lumumba, the first legally elected Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), was assassinated 50 years ago today, on 17 January, 1961. This heinous crime was a culmination of two inter-related assassination plots by American and Belgian governments, which used Congolese accomplices and a Belgian execution squad to carry out the deed. Ludo De Witte, the Belgian author of the best book on this crime, qualifies it as "the most important assassination of the 20th century". The assassination's historical importance lies in a multitude of factors, the most pertinent being the global context in which it took place, its impact on Congolese politics since then and Lumumba's overall legacy as a nationalist leader. For 126 years, the US and Belgium have played key roles in shaping Congo's destiny. In April 1884, seven months before the Berlin Congress, the US became the first country in the world to recognise the claims of King Leopold II of the Belgians to the territories o ...

We are tired of political rhetoric, African people are always taken for a ride. I call upon forces of Africa,real fighters of our liberation struggle. Sankara please hear our cries from the top of Kilimanjaro,on the banks of the Nile we sit weeping for guidance of Patrice Lumumba and Amilcar Cabral, lodestar that guided Kwame Nkrumah and Nyerere. From distant seas I can hear Malcolm X and Marcus Garvey shouting, by all means necessary defeat the enemies of Africa. Looking From windows of heaven I can see Sobukwe,Biko and Hani's unwinking eyes dropping them tears of sorrow. Asking where is Azania headed? answer me Motseki Mabuya.
The name of “our” enemy has changed over the years, from communism to Islamism, but generally it is any society independent of western power and occupying strategically useful or resource-rich territory. The leaders of these obstructive nations are usually violently shoved aside, such as the democrats Muhammad Mossedeq in Iran and Salvador Allende in Chile, or they are murdered like Patrice Lumumba in the Congo. All are subjected to a western media campaign of caricature and vilification – think Fidel Castro, Hugo Chávez, now Vladimir Putin.

I agree with Professor Robert Hill and Renoko Rashidi who both says that in their view, Marcus Garvey qualifies as the greatest Black man of the past hundred years. Of course, there are many, many others who came before and laid the foundation for the likes of Marcus M. Garvey and there are those to come for whom we must preserve this knowledge. Robert A. Hill and his staff . . . have gathered over 30,000 documents from libraries and other sources in many countries. The Garvey papers will reshape our understanding of the history of Black Nationalism and perhaps increase our understanding of contemporary black politics.”—Clayborne Carson, the Nation. There many worthy to be named important to our liberation process Elijah Muhammad, Noble Drew Ali, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez , Kwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba, Steve Beko, Nelson Mandela from Africa all great men.

The "United States of Africa" was mentioned first by Marcus Garvey in his poem 'Hail, United States of Africa' in 1924. Garvey's ideas deeply influenced the birth of the Pan-Africanist movement which culminated in 1945 with the Fifth Pan-African Congress in Manchester, United Kingdom, attended by W. E. B. Du Bois, Patrice Lumumba, George Padmore, Jomo Kenyatta, Dudley Thompson, and Kwame Nkrumah. Later, Nkrumah and Haile Selassie took the idea forward to form the 37 nation Organisation of African Unity, the precursor of the African Union. The idea of a multinational unifying African state was noted in the French publication Le Monde diplomatique as a successor to the medieval African empires: the Ethiopian Empire, the Ghana Empire, the Mali Empire, the Songhai Empire, the Benin Empire, the Kanem Empire, and other historic nation states On 9.9.1999, the Heads of State and Government of the Organisation of African Unity issued a Declaration (the Sirte Declaration) calling for the establishment of an African ...

51 YEARS LATER::: The likes on Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana,Patrice Lumumba of the then Zaire among others mobilised an African opinion to advance African cause and on 25 May 1963,they formed the OAU now the African Union in Addis Ababa.The idea was to liberate Africa from its colonisers!Put simply, the agenda was on the emancipation of African people!The AU's mandate is to advance the collective political,social and economic agenda of African countries.It seeks to provide/safeguard collective security of African countries,to promote peace and security among its member states. But sadly 51 years later,Africa is still not FREE!This pains my heart fellow Africans.51 years after, we are still where we were in 1963.In 1963,colonial masters were after African resources i.e cheap labour,land,minerals etc.Now 2014, the same Western countries that petitioned Africa among themselves in 1884 at Berlin conference,are heavily descending to Africa for cheap labour,land and minearls.This is now termed THE NEW SCRAMBLE FOR A ...

THIS IS YOUR WEEKLY REMINDER: THE FLORIDA BOYCOTT CONTINUES!!! For those of us in the States, this is Memorial Day weekend, a time of remembrance of the warriors among us, those who struggled and stood and fought and bled and died for something greater than themselves. Traditionally, many of Us use this time to offer gratitude and respect to the many fallen heroes of Our peoples: Nzinga, Cinque, Nat Turner, Sojourner Truth, Lozen, Toussaint L'Ouverture, Geronimo, Harriet Tubman, John Brown, Black Elk, Gabriel Prosser, Frederick Douglass, Robert Smalls, Ganga Zumba, Oginga Odinga, Ida B. Wells, Patrice Lumumba, Malcolm X, Walter Rodney, Samora MacHel, Fred Hampton, and on and on; as well as nameless others on whose shoulders we stand. I personally add to those so honored the members of my own family who suffered and struggled and sacrificed to make "a way outta no way" for me and mine. We honor these Precious Ones, because they left a legacy of fortitude, courage, vision and commitment -- commitment to ove ...

REMEMBERING ELOMBE BRATH! - So many of my closest comrades in struggle are making their transitions. Gil Noble, Amiri Baraka, Jitu Weusi, Chokwe Lumumba, Atchuda Bakr, John Watusi Branch, Dave Walker to name a few. And now my beloved brother Elombe Brath. Brother Elombe was considered a walking encyclopedia on African Liberation and a pioneer in the cultural revolution in America. He showed us through his " Grandassa Models " that Black was beautiful long before it was fashionable. He was a Pan-Africanist Revolutionary Freedom Fighter of the highest order. Brother Elombe will be sorely missed. Take your well deserved rest my Brother besides your heroes, Patrice Lumumba, Marcus Garvey, Carlos Cooks, Harriet Tubman, Malcolm X and countless others. Job well done my Brother! Forward Ever!
I have loved politics all my life-i enjoyed as a young naive boy reading of Nelson Mandela Martin Luther King, Jr. Jomo Kenyatta,Tom Mboya,Thomas Sankara, Patrice Lumumba, Dedan Kimathi et al,,but the current crop of politicians we have as a country lack no motivation and the lesser you talk about them the better. No matter the level of hatred,tribal animosity and empty rhetoric's preached by the so called "leaders" i choose to remain positive and allow God to do His will upon Kenya. and did i say, i love my president Uhuru Kenyatta. we shall overcome!!
Like I said beforehand, the president needs to be adequately advised to rethink his appointments in the public sector. So many regions feel left out. These are the things that brood animosity between communities. Since, seemingly he doesn't read history unless compelled to, I wish to refer him to the story of Liberia during the days of one Samuel Doe. Or the story of Congo during the days of Patrice Lumumba and Joseph Kasavubu. He should go further and read about Mobutu Sese Seko after he changed Congo into Zaire. If still he doesn't learn from those, he should go across and read about Idi Amin in Uganda in the 70s and check the history of Rwanda up to the climax of the slaughter of a million people in 1994. Fortunately, all this information is available online. If push comes to shove, the president should know that he and his perceived supporters stand to lose more. I say "perceived " because this is not necessarily true. Just yesterday, one of his loyal supporters, one Moses Kuria, .was advoc ...
STOP THIS WEATHER-BEATEN HYSTERIA AND THINK DEEPER I have read so much how the US and other european powers fund destabilisation of emerging economies in Africa, how the CIA, MOSSAD, etc mastermind the operations Al Queda, Boko Haram, etc, how they turn our economies to spin on their heads. But, all these footsoldiers of the West happen always to be africans! Does it suggest we're no match to them, intellectually at least? And who do we blame if they continuously use us or if we continuously remain unappreciative of the consequences of their biddings that we do? Do these intelligence outfits work with natives or whites for information and liquidation activities in Africa? Do they anchor on and work with educated or illiterate africans? Who is fighting Nigeria in Sambisa Forest-the marines? Who killed Thomas Sankara - the French? Who killed Patrice Lumumba- the Belgians or whites from the USA? We better look inward and treat ourselves to a point where we should know when we're manipulated and the conseque ...
Does anyone find it odd that Hintsa KaKhawuta, chief of the Xhosa nation, Nat Turner, Thomas Sankara, Patrice Lumumba, Che Guevara and countless other freedom fighters were not only assassinated as per the ruling powers of the United States/Europe...but were ALL DISMEMBERED before burials. Both of Che Guevara's hands were removed by a "physician" on the premise of fingerprint identification.; I thought one only needed a finger? Thomas Sankara's family wanted to exhume his body for DNA identification, but their request was denied. Do we really believe rituals...whether they are done for good or evil...are exclusively done by indigenous people only?
Where would their respective countries be and Africa in general, if these statesman and patriots,where allowed to live by the powers that be??? Tom Mboya,Steve Biko, Eduardo Mondlane,Samora MacHel,Patrice Lumumba, Namndi Azikiwe,Abubakar Tafawa Balewa,Thomas Sankara,and Amilcar Cabral.

Over 50 years ago democratically elected Patrice Lumumba was murdered. His lost was a great injustice. God Bless...
" You must enegetically combat tribalism, which is a poison, a social scourge that is the country's misfortune today" ~ Patrice Lumumba. 1960. Address to Congolese Youth.
Patrice Lumumba was a sterling leader and visionary. He was democratically elected but because his views were left of the center, the USA and Belgium conspired to have him killed. Same happened in Chile with Salvador Allende, the USA conspired to have him assassinated. No nation, not even the USA, can continue for long to commit crimes in the backyards of others and think the chickens will not come home to roost. To your journey!
Lionel Foy you just mention my resemblance to these 2 super heroes and I'd to research and it seems there is a likeness but who is which is Patrice Lumumba and which is Malcom X?
You have to remember, this is the man who called Patrice Lumumba a n***er.
A poem by Patrice Lumumba black man, beast of burden through the centuries, Your ashes scattered to the winds of heaven, There was a time when you built burial temples In which your murderers sleep their final sleep. Hunted down and tracked, driven from your homes. Beaten in battles where brute force prevailed. Barbaric centuries of rape and carnage That offered you the choice of death or slavery. You went for refuge to the forest depths, And other deaths waylaid you, burning fevers, Jaws of wild beasts, the cold, unholy coils Of snakes who crushed you gradually to death. Then came the white man, more clever, tricky, cruel, He took your gold in trade for shoddy stuff, He raped your women, made your warriors drunk, Penned up you sons and daughters on his ships. The tom-toms hummed through all the villages, Spreading afar the mourning, the wild grief At news of exile to a distant land Where cotton is God and the dollar King. Condemned to enforced labor, beasts of burden, Under a burning sun from dawn to dus ...
From conspiracy theory to fact? The killing of Patrice Lumumba, the first Prime Minister of DRC
Excellent documentary on the murder of Patrice Lumumba. The last scene with the murder makes my blood boil
Thomas Sankara may not be a household name, yet to many Africans, he was a leader in equal stature to Kwame Nkrumah, Marcus Garvey, Patrice Lumumba, Robert Mugabe and Laurent Gbagbo. Born in 1949 in a country formerly known as Upper Volta, Sankara embarked on a military career, quickly rising in the ranks. Sankara became his country’s head of state in 1983 after leading a coup d’état against the then current imperialist puppet government. He renamed his country Burkina Faso, meaning “Land of Upright People.” For a man referred to as “The African Che Guevara,” it is no surprise that he is still widely unknown in Africa and the West. Profoundly influenced by the work of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin, he committed his presidency to eradicating poverty and to uplifting the common man. As a Pan- Africanist, he sought to end the political ventriloquism practiced by former African colonial rulers as well as the continent’s dependency on foreign aid. “He who feeds you, controls you”, he argued. ...
REMEMBERING THE LAST WORDS OF PATRICE LUMUMBA : These were men no the Mickey Mouse Poloticians we are having now...Gone too soon!! My dear companion, I write you these words without knowing if they will reach you, when they will reach you, or if I will still be living when you read them. All during the length of my fight for the independence of my country, I have never doubted for a single instant the final triumph of the sacred cause to which my companions and myself have consecrated our lives. But what we wish for our country, its right to an honorable life, to a spotless dignity, to an independence without restrictions, Belgian colonialism and its Western allies-who have found direct and indirect support, deliberate and not deliberate among certain high officials of the United Nations, this organization in which we placed all our confidence when we called for their assistance-have not wished it.

Abdullahi Qarshe gets interviewed about writing a song about the assassination of Patrice Lumumba. Here it is:
Thanks brother, the dreams of patrice lumumba & Kwame Nkrumah must be realized
Death in the Congo: Murdering Patrice Lumumba Death in the Congo: Murdering Patrice...
Since the assassination by firing squad of Patrice Lumumba in January 1961 took place, the people of the Congo have never known political happiness. Then there was Kwame Nkrumah, , Sankara, Gadhafi and Samora MacHel. (I mention only the popular names; there were many like them). Robert Sobukwe, was also poisoned. What is common about the deaths of these sons of Africa is that their thoughts and actions were inimical to the interest of imperialism. Sadly, most of them died with the help of their own African brothers. Since the PAC carries the ideas and ideals of these heroes, it is not surprising that it is targeted by the same imperialists and with the help of our brothers. A pretty bundle of PAC votes were stolen, once again.
Those who talk about victory must explain what the victory is about .The real victory is yet to come which will be celebrated by African ancestoral spirits of Thomas Sankara ,Patrice Lumumba,Steve Biko,Mangaliso Sobukwe,Kwame Nkruma and many others.The ANC has sold us on the issue of land.They said ua free to dance over their election victory with a free boerewors roll and free yellow shirt with Mandela picture
Forty years after the murder of the Congolese independence leader Patrice Lumumba, evidence has…
African History is replete with glory and the proverbial Judases... Ever wonder what would have happened to Uganda if Edward Mutesa had not been deposed by Obote who was later deposed by General Amin, or Burkina Faso if Thomas Sankara had not been betrayed by Blaise Compaore? Let alone Congo if Patrice Lumumba had not been back stabbed by Mobutu Sese Seko? Never mind Nigeria and Chikwuma Nzeogwu and Balewa... The list is endless and begs the question of our true heritage. Really! Must every brave be the chief? Progress will only be made on our continent if we re-write the future. At one point all these despots that ended up causing so much havoc had sponsors with Economic interests...
Many other eminent scholars and leaders such as Kwame Nkrumah, Cheikh Anta Diop, Marcus Garvey, Patrice Lumumba, Julius Nyerere, Sekou Touré, Kenneth Kaunda and Thabo Mbeki also called for the rebirth of Africa. Despite the recurrent echoes of such ideals by the aforementioned Africans, the lack of progress has been astounding. If it requires the youth to revolt against their authoritarian leaders, whether through peaceful or violent means, in order that change is effected, then so be it. Liberation from authoritarian rule will not be handed out on a silver platter, but needs to be taken. The future of the African Youth is dependent on our will to be the catalyst for change. That brighter day envisioned by our forefathers shall rise only when we, the African Youth, rise against the injustices visited upon us.
Who killed Patrice Lumumba? The murder of those awesome leaders, Patrice Emery Lumumba and Thomas Sankara is the greatest example of how Africans have been programmed to hate one another and an absolute assassination of progress and growth. We get paid to betray one another in Africa and we are always proud doing that yet we blame others. We must admit it, we're powerless and we don't want to rise and be powerful. We pull logical leaders down through external influences and make our lives miserable. We did it for Lumumba in Congo and till date Congo is never peaceful. We did it for Sankara in Burkina Faso. We did it for Nkrumah in Ghana and retarded the growth history for years before Rawlings came to undo the doing. We did it Libya. We did it in Central African Republic where France bolstered the Seleka rebels again Francois Bozize. We are our own greatest enemies. Foreigners see the crack in our wall and fester on there. Despite the invasion and destruction of Iraq, Obama as President still praised Bush ...
Since 1994, no party talked of the economic emancipation of Africans, no party challenged the continued pillaging of our mineral resources, God Simakade’s precious and well-thought out gift to us, South Africans! He did not give it to Anglo Platinum, De Beers, Exxaro, Gold Fields, Harmony Gold, Impala Platinum, JFPI Corporation, Kumba Iron Ore, or Wesizwe Platinum – it is not anybody’s private garden but a national treasure from which all should & must live. For the first time since 1994, elections are exciting, because a voice ‘crying in the wilderness’ is crying sense, and it is gaining momentum. Thank you Mr Malema for being bold!!! May the All-seeing God, uSimakade, iDwala Laphakade, be to the EFF “the Cloud by Day and the Fire by Night”. May He see the EFF through, so that the spirits of Kwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba, Steve Biko & Thomas Sankara, at last finds rest in the knowledge that ‘some Africans find everything wrong with the continued neo-colonialism of our continent’. May . ...
Gamal Abdel Nasser, Patrice Lumumba, Thomas Sankara, Eduardo Mondlane, Ahmed Ben Bella amongst others..the African story, our dilemma..for how long will we be in chains, we know not.
Well, here is my view about Musi Maimane: I do not believe that Musi is faking Obama, I think He is inspired by Obama's leadership style. just like Steve Biko was inspired by Robert Sobukwe, and Patrice Lumumba who inspired by Kwame Nkrumah. leaders are inspired by other leaders and in a modern society like ours, it is good to have young leaders like Musi, and we should build a society that embraces such leaders.
The way The Great Mandela has been honoured and respected and his legacy celebrated by not only South Africans but also Africans and the world at large is an example of how a nation and a people should celebrate the legacy of The Great African men and women.Celebrate our heroes and heroins by erecting statue in their honour, putting their potraites on money, sing songs for them, do movies about them, write books about their lives, name towns, cities and significant buildings and places in their honour . Here are some of Africa's great men and women that come to mind are, Queen Nanny, Malcolm X,Martin Luther King Junior, Heuy Newton, Medger Evers, Angel Davies, Muhammad Ali, Hannibal Barca, Taharka, Mansa Musa, Queen sheba, Queen Amina, Queen Nandi, Steve Biko, Oliver Tumbo, Joshua Nkhomo, sobhukwe, Robert Mugabe, Kenneth Kaunda, Julius Mwalimu Nyerere, Samorah Mitchel, Patrice Lumumba, Jomo Kenyta, Kwame Nkurumah, Ben bella, Haile Silase, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, menelik the first and the second and ofco . ...
Little Giant Ladders
Commissar Thokozani H. Dladla genuine response to Gayton McKenzie's “Open Letter to Julius Malema”. "Julius Malema has been in the political arena for years and founded a political party 9 months back, it beats me what triggered your anxiety into thinking that now is the appropriate time for you to launch your political party’s manifesto with 14 days to the elections at the expense of Julius Malema and Economic Freedom Fighters." "A revolutionary is a person who participates in, or advocates revolution, that’s what Julius Malema is and that’s what Patrice Lumumba and Thomas Sankara were, unlike the conservative person that you are. The term revolutionary refers to something that has a major, sudden impact on society or on some aspect of human endeavor and that’s what EFF has done and still doing, which is why the upcoming elections are predicted to be the highly contested in the history of the young SA democracy. revolution is about an ideology not fashion statements.

A breed that brought us the likes of Thomas Sankara, Julius Nyerere, Patrice Lumumba, Stephen Bantu Biko, Robert Sobukwe, Amilcar Cabral, Chris Hani and many more.. Most of you will only realise 20years from now the depth of Mugabe's contribution to the survival and progression of Zimbabwe and Africa at large..
Will attempt to address the three previous questions in a not so short summary that links to ‘Pacte Coloniale’. You cannot address any African issue without going into the following: 1. Politics (.1’Pacte Coloniale’ & France’s ‘scorched earth’ policy towards the colonies.2 removal of Pan Africanist leaders Toussaint Le Oveture of Haiti, Modibo Keita of Mali, Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Patrice Lumumba of Congo, Sylvanus Olympio of Togo, Thomas Sankara of Burkina Faso, Nnamdi Azikiwe of Nigeria, Amilcar Cabral of Guinea-Bissau, Sekou Toure of Guinea,Leon M’ba of Gabon & a whole lot more) 2. Economics (.1 Europe’s reliance on Uranium in Mali, Togo, CAR, Niger to generate electricity .2 reliance on Congolese Uranium to build the atomic bombs, coltan into mobile phones…& a whole lot more) 3. Socio-culture (the assimilation of colonial citizens into French culture, education, ideals,etc. with the effect that it perpetuates Europe’s ideals on the African continent.

It seems there is a desire by many Africans to remain poor and live in the “comfort” of poverty forever. This, writes WONDER GUCHU, is like the children of Israel who pleaded with Moses to leave them in the comfort of their slavery rather than endure the long walk home to freedom. This, the writer argues, is the case with Malawi and its late President, Bingu wa Mutharika. Leaders of the character of late Malawian President, Bingu wa Mutharika, often never live to see the dream they have for Africa come to reality. A darling of the West and a recipient of aid, Mutharika’s last days were dark because he had taken up the gospel of empowering not only his people, but change the way all Africans think about themselves. This was the same dream that Kwame Nkrumah, Amílcar Cabral, Leopold Senghor, Frantz Fanon, Milton Obote, Patrice Lumumba, Kenneth Kaunda, Samora MacHel, Robert Mugabe, Julius Nyerere, Chris Hani, Julius Malema, Martin Luther King Jnr, Malcolm X and many others have all tried to advance.

MY 2013 REPORT ON MOBUTU's DRC DOWNFALL. READ IT IF YOU ARE CURIOUS OR IF YOU CARE. Delegates and directors of the United Nations, We all know that the nation of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in the 21st century faces challenges of several fronts. I have been asked to place these issues in historical perspective for you. You may think that problems of violence, and political instability, and unregulated labour exploitation, are new phenomena in this region. But as I will demonstrate, the DRC-Known over the last 25 years by several names and ruled by different controlling interests-has a long history of destabilization. This history has contributed to the conditions that continue to render ordinary people vulnerable to exploitation and violence by those who seek power and wealth. When DRC finally gained its independence from Belgium in 1960, Patrice Lumumba who was the Prime Minister at that time, complained about the short period given to him to prepare suitable candidates to form a stable cabine ...
Writing a new song for 2015 entitled "Patrice Lumumba". The great ancestor was a Pan-Africanist and the the true leader of the Congo.
if we want the truth,let's know d killers of MKO Abiola,Bola Ige,Harry Marshall,Patrice Lumumba etc
Our Past Heroes Patrice Lumumba = Patrice Lumumba, the son of a farmer, was born in Katako Kombe in the central Congo on 2nd July, 1925. After leaving school he worked as a nurse's assistant and a postal clerk. An active trade unionist he founded the Post Office Employees Club. He also served as secretary of the Association for African Government Employees. In October, 1958, Lumumba founded the National Congolese Movement (MNC). He became president of the organization and the following year led a series of demonstrations and strikes against the Belgian colonial government. Lumumba called for the Congo to be granted its immediate independence from Belgium. Lumumba was arrested but after sustained demonstrations the authorities were forced to release him. After parliamentary elections in May 1960 the MNC became the country's strongest party. Lumumba became the new Prime Minister and immediately talked about the need for social and economic changes in the country. His decision to adopt a non-aligned foreign ...

CONGO HISTORY TIMELINE 2001 - Present Joseph Kabila’s Rule In 2001, Laurent Kabila is assassinated and replaced by his son Joseph Kabila. By 2003, a transition government and parliament were established to lead the Congo to elections. In 2005, Congolese overwhelmingly vote yes in a referendum on a new Congolese constitution. Elections were held in 2006 which resulted in the election of Joseph Kabila as president. Kabila appointed long-time Lumumbist Antonie Gizenga of PALU to be Prime Minister. Gizenga served as deputy Prime Minister in Patrice Lumumba's government of 1960. Gizenga resigned on September 25, 2008 and was subsequently replaced by former Finance Minister, Adolphe Muzito, on October 10, 2008. The last elections took place on November 28, 2011. Joseph Kabila won the 2011 elections due to massive fraud. As a result of the widespread cheating that took place during the elections, he lacks the legitimacy among the Congolese masses. Kabila appointed the former Finance Minister, Augustin Matata P ...

They fear us cause we learned their game, They'll never fill our souls with shame, We suffer injustice they've allowed, But we're not blue, we're BLACK and PROUD... They'll never comprehend my mind, They try to kill my growing kind, But they can't stop what's meant to be, ALL people on earth must be free, Yes I'm against the constitution, My BLACKNESS yearns for REVOLUTION.

Please tell that we are the chosen ones; the grand children of Kwame Nkrumah; Julius Nyerere; Patrice Lumumba & Nelson Mandela
Democratic Republic of the Congo In 1960, Patrice Lumumba was elected the first Prime Minister of the newly independent Democratic Republic of Congo. Considered the richest country in Africa based on land mass and natural resources, Congo’s former colonizer Belgium wasn’t ready to fully relinquish control of its prized territory. Belgium was eager to throw its support behind the province of Katanga in the southeast ,which declared its independence as the state of Katanga under the leadership of Moise Tshombe. Belgium provided the CONAKAT party led by Tshombe with more than 6,000 Belgian troops. Several ethnic conflicts and political tensions arose. Lumumba, concerned with unifying the Congo, called a compliant Soviet Union for military support. Lumumba’s decision to accept Soviet help angered the administration of U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower, who reportedly ordered his assassination. Lumumba’s Pan-Africanist policies to completely wrangle his country out of the hands of foreign countries made ...

Patrice Lumumba, Harriet Tubman, Marcus Garvey, Thomas Sankara, Malcom X, Frederick Douglas… Because of them we can
Over the weekend of 18th and 19th January, 2014, I have spent a substantive amount of time watching various documentaries on Governance Power Trends across nations; specifically from colonization, self governance that turned into self preservation through, coup de tat, and interestingly, the political assassinations. Documentaries on assassinations of Martin Luther King Jnr (US), JF Kennedy (US), Steve Biko (SA), Patrice Lumumba (DRC), Kenya's Pio Gama Pinto, Tom Mboya, JM Kariuki, and Robert Ouko etc; leave me wondering if Kenya is far from these cases in this present era again. In these cases, one thing is always clear, the political heat/pressure being created by the would-be victim to the political class/individuals facing imagined threat/competition. Political assassinations have undergone extreme metamorphosis; they are not necessarily by the direct 'bullets', but also by planned accidents and food/drink poisoning, for instance after all we may never know the theory behind the recent deaths of Georg ...
The Great Lakes Summit could not have taken place at a better, although bitter, time. We remember the deaths of Almicar Cabral, Patrice Lumumba and 20 years since the Rwanda genocide. While the temptation to look further for causes of problems, the Rwanda genocide ghostly reminds us to look at the mirror. I may only guess that it within this context that we must read former Pres Thabo Mbeki's warning against the spectre of 'tribalism'.
Just watched the trailer for 12 year a slave.It's seems like every year Hollywood putting out a new slave movie. Getting bored with these subservient movies, black history is much more dynamic than that. Huey Newton, Patrice Lumumba, Amilcar Cabral, Fanon, Walter Rodney, Queen nzinga , Angela Davies, Maya Angelou, Tomas Sankara, Julius Nyerere, Beko and Somari True. Are incredible stories that are never told.
No sound African American leader like Malcolm X, Farrakan, King, Kwame Toure, etc have ever made such claims that Africans think they are better than blacks here and those people above have had interactions with Africans . Only one who has emotional issue will make such comment . In the opposite no sound African leader like Biko, Nkrumah , Mandela, Patrice Lumumba have ever projected the image that they were better than any other blacks and no one has made accusation against them. Any black person that has extreme view against another black in any form of hate is no different from the KKK
As Nelson Mandela is to South Africa, Patrice Lumumba is to the Democratic Republic of Congo. A struggle for justice and true democracy. A father of the nation, putting his life second for the well being and intent of his people. A struggle for social justice, peace and unification.

Kabila Returns, In a Cloud of Uncertainty INTRODUCTION Since the 1960's, Laurent Kabila had led a group of insurgents against the dictatorial Mobutu Sese Seko government in Kinshasa, operating along Zaire's eastern border 1. Kabila's group was one of the many rebel movements in the East that had arisen with the aim of furthering the political program of Congo's first Prime Minister, Patrice Lumumba, the popular and charismatic leader who was assassinated in 1961. The major Lumumbist insurgencies had been subdued by Mobutu using foreign mercenaries between 1965 and 1967. The small surviving groups such as that of Kabila posed no threat to the Mobutu regime. The 1994 Rwandan genocide changed all that. Approximately one million Rwanda Hutu refugees fled to eastern Zaire, which was already near the boiling point due to conflicts over land use and political representation. In an effort to break out of its diplomatic isolation, the Mobutu government provided backing to the Hutu, including army and militia eleme ...

Nigeria’s unsolved murders and assassinations APRIL 25, 2012 BY SABELLA ABIDDE Murders and political assassinations have been part of the human experience for as long as humans have existed. Legal definition and differentiation aside, murder is simply the unlawful killing of a human being by another human being. And although political assassination is also a form of murder, it is done primarily for known gains. In other words, while murder may be committed for no justifiable reasons, assassinations, on the other hand, are carried out for religious, ideological, economic, military, or political purposes. Nonetheless, across ages and cultures, most killings — assassinations or otherwise — go unsolved. Some of the earliest assassinations in Africa include that of Hiempsal I in 117 BC in what is now modern Algeria. Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus was killed in Egypt in 48 BC. Those who have been assassinated in recent times include Patrice Lumumba; Thomas Mboya; Amílcar Cabral; Stephen Biko; Thomas Sankara; and ...
This is the real truth about Chokwe Lumumba he left school and he and his little group only used the real black people who he has tried to identify with and has never been really accepted because he is a user and not a leader but someone that is just a retarded racist that works against his own people because they don't agree with him! Raised in Detroit, he was radicalized by the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. In 1969 he began law school at Wayne State University, gave up his given name, Edwin Taliaferro, for the “free name” Chokwe Lumumba — honoring the Chokwe ethnic group of Central Africa and the Congolese revolutionary Patrice Lumumba — and joined the RNA in Jackson, leaving law school for two years to dedicate himself to the cause. After graduating, he set up a practice in Detroit and represented the former Black Panther leaders Geronimo Pratt and Assata Shakur. This is one of the main reason with him as your Mayor Jackson will never grow!
Congratulations to director Rico Speight and his team and their collaboration with the historic La Mama organization for bringing a revival of ICON Aime Cesaire's play about the political career and murder of Congo president Patrice Lumumba, which has not received much production over the years. Political Theatre is not a term we hear much of these days. It's a good thing that I was able to catch the closing performance yesterday afternoon.
Where are the Race Men of today ? As I look around it's hard to find such a man who places the welfare of his people before his own. Is it because of the ole mighty dollar that they have given up being a race man and sold out, so they won't have to have the burden of the race upon their shoulders. Maybe they have forgotten how to be men !

Floribert Chebeya Bahizire (1963 - 2010) Floribert Chebeya Bahizire was born on September 13, 1963 in Bukavu, South Kivu, Congo. He was assassinated on Jun 2, 2010 in Kinshasa, DRC. Floribert fought tirelessly for human rights and dignity of the Congolese people. Whether it was against the arch dictator backed by the US and the West, Joseph Desire Mobutu or against the two Kabila's (Laurent Desire Kabila and Joseph Kabila) who took power after Mobutu. He worked from the early 1990s to his death in 2010 in spite of the harassment, imprisonment and threats on his life. He was the leader of the human rights group Voix des Sans Voix (Voice of the Voiceless). Floribert is among the pantheon of figures like Kimpa Vita, Simon Kimbangu, Lupungu, Patrice Lumumba and Pierre Mulele who fought for democracy and freedom for the Congolese people.

I have just come from watching the film Long Walk To Freedom, for the last three hours this evening. What absolute crap. I will never watch that nonsense again. The two main actors playing Madiba and Winnie Mandela sound more Shona (Zimbabwean) when faking their SA English. The actress does not come to near as good looking as Winnie at an earlier period. It is not clear why the actors playing Madiba and Walter Sisulu should be so dark-hued, like they are from South Sudan, when Madiba and Walter were of a lighter hue. A mind game maybe? And yet the young man playing the cameo role of Terror Lekota in his first confrontation with Madiba on Robben Island is of a lighter hue, when Terror is real life is of a darker hue like me and South Sudanese. I am surprised Winnie declared herself satisfied with this cinematic craptrap. She is portrayed as very horney, initiating the fist sex-on-the-veld-grass with Madiba and in some of the later sex scenes. She is then portrayed as rabidly angry and bitter against whit . ...

I think Mandela is not the great hero that we always want to believe he is. True, he stepped down at the right time and so did Nyerere, Mkapa and other leaders when time came, He is a darling of the West, just like Gandhi, Martin Luther King and other pacifists who will not rock the Western boat. In this Western created scenario, heroes such as Patrice Lumumba, Malcom X are nonexistent and are erased from memory and history. We are taught and indoctrinated into worshiping the ‘heroes’ chosen by the Western hegemony while it becomes almost taboo to criticize them. Only people who succumb to the pressure and bow to the white man become heroes. Otherwise, why don’t we have Malcolm X day in the US. We have been indoctrinated into Martin Luther King’s speeches but non from Malcolm X , who does not exist in our history books. Where is Samora MacHel, Thomas Sankara et al?
Africa is a continent which brought up many heroes one of them is Patrice lumamba the first Congolese Prime Minister
The UN was complicit in the coup and murder of Patrice Lumumba -.-
Did you know that the CIA is responsible for killing Martin Luther King Malcolm X Patrice Lumumba and also destroying the Black Panther Party as well as the American Indian Movement. The CIA is also responsible for capturing and handing over Nelson Mandela to the South African government. And there's also enough evidence to suggest that the CIA is responsible for putting crack cocaine in black communities in America.
I wish I had Oprah money, I would make a movie on Patrice Lumumba
Nelson Mandela, Patrice Lumumba and Thomas Sankara. Africa's beloved sons. The shining lights of our motherland.
Thomas Sankara As Africa looks desperately for leaders of integrity and vision, the life and ideals of the late Thomas Sankara seem more and more relevant and exemplary with the passage of time. This new film should go a long way towards explaining why, though largely forgotten in this country, Sankara is still venerated on his own continent as the ‘African Che,’ a legendary martyr like Patrice Lumumba or Amilcar Cabral. The film recovers for the present a detailed history of Sankara’s brief four-year rule and his revolutionary program for African self-reliance as a defiant alternative to the neo-liberal development strategies imposed on Africa by the West, both then and today. Sankara, a charismatic army captain, came to power in Burkina Faso, in 1983, in a popularly supported coup. He immediately launched the most ambitious program for social and economic change ever attempted on the African continent. To symbolize this rebirth, he even renamed his country from the French colonial Upper Volta to B ...

The purpose of life is a life with a purpose So I'd rather die for a cause than live a life that is worthless I don't need the circus or the day of national observance I need you to think for you and stop being a servant Pawns only move a square in the game that they're used in And realize it too late like the shooting of Huey Newton Or Patrice Lumumba and Salvador Allende Slaughtered by the power-hungry branches of their own gente Ghandi wasn't killed by Pakistani nationals He was assassinated by a Hindu radical And Che Guevara, rebel to a U.S. continent Was sold to the C.I.A. by Bolivian communists Wasn’t Yitzhak Rabin murdered by a Zionist And Anwar Sadat a victim of the same violence? Malcolm X was seen as a threat to the F.B.I But to blast ‘em they used Muslims from the N.O.I Even the 35th President of the Republic Was murdered by factions of his own government So now that it’s proven, that a soldier of revolution Or head of an empire, disguised in a constitution Can not escape the retribution ...

Congolese independence leader & the first Prime Minister of Republic of Congo...Patrice Lumumba
New African asked you, the readers, to nominate your greatest Africans of all time – both Continental and Diasporan (or people of African descent) – in all walks of life. The aim was to come up with your Top 100 Greatest Africans of all time. You have spoken and we publish here your choice. Since last December when we first announced the poll, we have had a very exciting time. Your nominations flooded in. Analysing them has been an eye- opener. The total shows Nelson Mandela as your No.1 Greatest African of all time, followed closely by Kwame Nkrumah, and Robert Mugabe in third place. Mugabe’s high score is particularly interesting, given that in the last four years a high profile campaign in the media has painted him in bad light. The nominations in the other categories are equally fascinating. Overall, the results point out certain characteristics about Africans. Why did politicians dominate the poll? Do people tend to vote for men as only a few women were nominated? Or is there a paucity of women ...
The greatest leader of the Dalits of India is B.R. Ambedkar (1891-1956). The Dalits call him Babasaheb. To the Dalits of India he is treated like a combined Marcus Garvey, Harriet Tubman, Malcolm X, Kwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba, Martin Luther King, Elijah Muhammad rolled into one. He is the universal hero of the Dalits.

Chiwetel Ejiofor has much to say about his role as Patrice Lumumba in
If Mandela was a real revolutionary he would have ended up like the likes of Gaddafi, Thomas Sankara and Patrice Lumumba. Mandela agreed to a bad deal in SA. The result is inequality, high crime rates, high unemployment and HIV/AIDS. We don't have leaders in Africa just Western puppets.

"A man without nationalistic tendencies is a man without a soul." - Patrice Lumumba
June 30, 1960. Patrice Lumumba asked us to keep this day in our hearts to pass its meaning down to our children
Wish i had the chance to meet Patrice Lumumba and or Malcolm X.
Madiba: Heroism in a Broken World In a Bertolt Brecht’s play, The Life of Galileo, Andrea remarked to Galileo, “Unhappy the land that has no heroes.” A nation is built by the fervent support of her citizens, the visionary doggedness of her patriots and the superhuman and extraordinary sacrifices of her heroes and heroines who keep going even after the citizens and the patriots have ceased believing in the possibilities embodied by the nation. And heroes are also moulded by their nations. They are human beings who are assailed by all the follies, weaknesses and vicissitudes of the human condition as well as the twists and turns of a developing nation. They become heroes because they often surpass their humanity by taking extra steps most of us would have found tiresome and costly. Scott Fitzgerald, the American writer once said, “Show me a hero and I will write you a tragedy.” There are three tragic things to consider about heroes that should give us pause. First, they are human and they eventual ...

“. It's better than what the leader called Patrice Lumumba.
I think there are those that misunderstand my words as they are written so let me break it down. I have nothing but RESPECT for the struggle that Mandela (and others, lest you forget) faced. However I would be letting MYSELF down if I didn't comment on what I feel or what I see. I have lived in a time where people like Patrice Lumumba, Steve Biko, Maurice Bishop, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and countless others have fought against oppression and NOT been allowed the grace of a long life. My respect for Mandela does not (and should not) prevent me from questioning the price that was paid by the very people he was fighting for in order for this 'peaceful transition' to take place. A transition that interestingly leaves the oppressor turned 'partner' still wielding the power and wealth. In fact, the 'former' power structure is in an even BETTER position than before with International boycotts and sanctions now lifted and no form of punishment for heinous acts of murder, torture and rape; only forgiveness. ...
Obama was the forefront of assisination of Muammour Gaddafi, Clinton killed Osama Binladen, Belgium and western forces killed Che Guevara, Patrice Lumumba, Thomas Sankara and many others. So indeed Obama deserve the booing,instead of booing ur own president I mean what has he done for Kenyans? Pity SA are in majority hypocritical. We bo our own president and cheer a foreigner we look like fools indeed...Sigila
We have too many black intellectuals but no new ideas, no black liberation philosophy and no black leaders. We have too many black radicals but no black revolution. The only thing we do is moan and debate about our leaders. Today Obama said ''There will never be a another leader like Mandela'' and it just made me sad because there are millions of youths around the world. What is wrong with us? We write to sound intelligent and then we wonder why blacks hate to read. We do things to fit in with the crowd. We are not serious about our liberation. Its easy to disrespect someone but to do what that person has done is another story. Thomas Sankara was 33 years old when he became President of Burkina Faso and Franz Fanon was 27 years old when he wrote Black Skin white masks. We talk about these people as if they are better than us. What is stopping us? Too many of us just go along with the system because along is connected to our paychecks. We are not willing to sacrifice our jobs and ourselves for this contine ...
I will take exception to the assumption that Africa has never had true leaders except Mandela. To say or to agree to such assertions exposes the lack of historical knowledge of most people. For sure Mandela was great, but how and why? The answer to the question of when and where is already too obvious. There are persons that I categorize as front-line African leaders; those that won independence for their country; those that formed the political ideology of their states; those that built the epistemic foundation of their nations. They fought the wild beasts to emancipate their people; they sacrifice sleep and comfort for political and moral freedom; they suffered ill health as a result of constant exposure to hazardous weather; they risked losing their families as a result of continual absence from home. Such men include Julius Nyerere of Tanzania, Haile Silesia of Ethiopia, Jomo Kenyetta of Kenya, Patrice Lumumba of Congo, Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia and even Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe. But where did these m ...
THE GREAT ICONS The best world’s icons in my heart that I have read about very well for their great historical: 1. The Prophet Muhammad ibn Abd Allāh ibn Abd al-Muṭṭalib (S.A.W). 2. King Faisal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia. 3. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the first president and founder of UAE. 4. Mahatma Gandhi, the preeminent leader and freedom fighter of India. 5. Mr. Patrice Lumumba, the Congolese independence leader. 6. Mr. Kwame Nkrumah the leader of Ghana and Africa. 7. Abraham Lincoln the 16th President of the United States. 8. Father Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist and first President of South Africa after the freedom. 9. Mr. Meles Zenawi, the former Prime Minister of Ethiopia and one of the great leaders in Africa. I love you all. Yours sincerely, Omar A. Al-Sagaf
To mark the publication of Patrice Lumumba, a new collection of the African independence leader’s speeches in their original French, we publish an exclusive translation of Georges Nzongola-Ntalaja's introduction to the volume.
In the distant days of antiquity, a Roman sentenced this African city to death: "Carthage must be destroyed (Carthago delenda est)". And Carthage was destroyed. Today we wander among its ruins, only our imagination and historical records enable us to experience its magnificence. Only our African being makes it possible for us to hear the piteous cries of the victims of the vengeance of the Roman Empire. And yet we can say this, that all human civilisation rests on foundations such as the ruins of the African city of Carthage. These architectural remains, like the pyramids of Egypt, the sculptures of the ancients kingdoms of Ghana and Mali and Benin, like the temples of Ethiopia, the Zimbabwe ruins and the rock paintings of the Kgalagadi and Namib deserts, all speak of Africa`s contribution to the formation of the condition of civilisation. But in the end, Carthage was destroyed. During the long interregnum, the children of Africa were carted away as slaves. Our lands became the property of other nations, ...
I only gave voice to words of freedom nd brotherhood- Patrice Lumumba... 1 of Africa's great revolutionary.
MESSAGE FOR MANDELA Dear Madiba Sir, As you sojourn to the Land of Infinity, please share our burden to these Great Africans: 1. Tell Saro Wiwa that an Ijaw man in now C-in-C and that his brothers now make bold declarations in the 9ja polity 2. Tell Ojukwu that even the saboteurs now prefers Biafra 3. Also tell Abacha that his Kanuri brothers who refused to go to school now wage suicide assaults against the Nigerian state 4. And don't forget to tell Alhaji Lugard, that stranger, that as the centenary of his amalgamation of strange bedfellows approach amidst Christmas jingle bells that the jingles of disintegration is being sang by parochial interests and violent extremists, such that the minds of the enlightened have started quering the continued desirability of his unholy matrimony 5. For Herbert Macaulay, please inform him that strange bed fellows now carpet cross party lines in their desperate quest for political power to continued their subjugation and denial of the legitimate aspirations of genuine N ...

Newton, Che Guevara, Bob Marley. this is a list of some of the Black Leaders who were killed by the system, while they were still young. we shall search for their spirits, in our quest for the struggle of the Total Liberation and Economic Freedom of Black People. Aluta Continua.
Can somebody educate these people about Che Guevara, about Gandhi, about Kwame Nkrumah, about Patrice Lumumba, about Walter Sisulu, and (I dare say to the best of my judgement) even the infamous Robert Mugabe and many others and then ask them why Mandela is heralded as the paradigm of sacrifice, the ultimate reference point for heroism? He has been thrown right in our faces by a media with an ulterior agenda creating this myth of a demigod. I say rip Madiba, and good-riddance, good-riddance to the superficial media fetish he had become that was getting so boring and rather annoying.
Mandela: A Pan African Hero Statement by H.E. Dr. Nkosazana C. Dlamini Zuma Chairperson of the African Union Commission at the African Union Memorial for President Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela Au Conference Centre, Addis Ababa 8 December 2013 Mandela: A Pan African Hero. Statement of AU Commission Chairperson, Dr. Dlamini Zuma at the AU memorial Service in honour of Nelson Rolohlahla Mandela, 8 December, Addis Ababa A life shaped in struggle Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela’s life must be understood in the context of the struggle of South African and African people, and indeed the struggle of oppressed peoples everywhere. When Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born in the village of Mvezo, Transkei on 18 July 1918, what was known during the First World War as the ‘Africa Campaign’ just ended a year earlier. This campaign affected Tanzania, Zambia, Mozambique Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, Uganda and the DR Congo in the east and on the west Nambia, Togo, Cameroon and Ghana. Its conclusion was yet another reshuffling of A ...
I just woke-up due to my usual insomnia & my subconscious must've been working because before going to sleep, I had posted a message to a friend about a book called "In Search of Enemies" after her remark concerning a post I'd made regarding the American presence in Afghanistan. The author of this book is John Stockwell, the highest ranking C.I.A. operative to have ever resigned up to that point in the late 70s. I had the good fortune of hearing Mr. Stockwell deliver a talk at the university I was attending at the time and stood in line to get his autograph in my copy of his book. I feel this is worth sharing and is just more proof of how sinister a government we have. "Our" govt. has been pursuing an agenda of Imperialism my entire life, see Gore Vidal's "Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace." They just keep feeding our soldiers into their military machine like a meat grinder and I sometimes despair that we, as a nation, will ever wake-up enough to put a stop to it. Wonder why "terrorists" keep trying to ki ...
Am pretty sure that even my own Maama may disown me 4 saying this but someone has to say it & it's me to do it; Yes I salute Nelson Mandela as a son of soil just like Patrice Lumumba, Shakara, Kwame khuruma, Mwarimu Nyerere, Kabalega or Mwanga of buganda. The above men fought for African cause though some never lived like Mandela to see the fruits of their blood but all r equally heroes & no one shd be celebrated more than other! In fact Mandele was a White man's project natured & used to cover their backs. These White Afrikans as they prefer to be called butchered our black brothers & sisters under the watchful eyes of USA's FBI & British CIA which closely reported to their home govts that ANC's group in South Africa were terrorists. Their aim was to kill off black population just like they did in Australia,New Zeland & port Louis.. That's why I have to agree with majority South Africans in Soweto & other places who believes that Mandela shd be remembered as any other greedy African who took a cheap de . ...

African god! Your wind of honor is once more blowing across the globe. Your light of equity and justice is still breaking the shackles of oppression all over the world. On Thursday December 5, 2013 those who know little about you announced that the African star is gone, but you look at them and smiled. Madiba, shall I tell them that your duty to mankind started long before July 18, 1918? Like our good friend Job stated in his autobiography, “I have been a widow’s guide from my mother’s womb (Job 31vs 18)” your light of justice shines on!!! Though the lesser part of you undergoes transformation, your higher self remain the same. Least I forget, I heard Julius Nyerere saying that African leaders will meet on 15th December 2013, at Qunu to discuss Africa’s future etc, to be present are Mansa Musa, Jomo Kenyata, Ajuma Odinga Odinga, Kwame Nkrumah,Nnamdi Azikiwe, Patrice Lumumba, Joshua Nyongolo Nkomo, Akwaeke Nwafo Orizu, Herbert Macaulay, Sundiata, Iheonukara Okpara, Stephen Biko, Akanu Ibiam, Ob . ...

Mandela surpassed all Africans great heroes like Patrice Lumumba, Kwame Nkruma, Sekou Toure, Jomo Kenyetta, William V.S. Tubman, Houpheot Boigny, Haile Selassie, Thomas Sankara etc. He is now in the unique league of the World Greatest, heroes, Champions and Leaders; Mother Theresa,Harriet Tubman, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Mahatma Gandhi, Mao Tse-tung,Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, and Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev. We could also put him in the league with great heroes and warriors like Julius Caesar,Napoleon Bonaparte and King James of England.
