First Thoughts

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.

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 ...
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
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 Organization of African Unity, the precursor of the African Union.
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 ...
REMEMBERING NELSON MADIBI MANDALA A TRIBUTE TO MY HERO AMEAGO SEKOU KAMARA DECEMBER 16, 2013 I was mournfully sitting near the Guinean border in the town of Bolongoidu in the Quadu-Gboni District of Lofa County, the place of my father’s birth where I have travelled to attend the 40 days festival of my father’s senior brother, the late Papa Joman Kamara (CKA – JK) when I got the broken news of the death of the late global icon of peace, justice, freedom and human rights, Nelson Madibi Mandala. Having before then avoided putting pen to paper or speaking out openly about a role model in life for many years, I became imbued with the desire and enthusiasm to comment about this noble man. Following several and careful examinations of the lives of great personalities accredited for their relentless struggle for human equality and freedom such as Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcoln X of the United States of America, Mahaman and Indira Nehru Gandhi of India, Patrice Lumumba of the Democratic Republic of ...
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 ! Race men and women were Prince Hall, Paul Cuffe, Martin Delany, Frederick Douglas, James "Holly" Johnson, Edward Blyden, Bishop Henry Mc Neil Turner, Harriet Tubman, Henry Sylvester Williams, Toussaint L Ouverture, W.E.B. Du Bois, Ida B Wells, Sojourner Truth, Queen Nzingha, Marcus Garvey, George Padmore, C.L.R. James, Hubert H. Harrison, Patrice Lumumba, Kwame Nkrumah, Franz Fanon, Booker T.

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.
Son you need to put the picture in perspective. You cry for the latest sneakers. You'll wipe off the tears when you look around and see the limb less kid in a wheelchair. Perspective son is all I ask. Madiba Nelson Mandela never for a day resented those who stole about three decades of his life. Madiba put the picture in perspective. He knew neither Steve Biko, nor Patrice Lumumba had the luxury of holding a grand child in their arms. The price of struggle is high. Ernesto Che Guevara, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jnr paid the ultimate price. Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price. After all that, whyare we still preaching hatred. My people we need to let the power of love shine Let peace reign in the world Perspective will give the world a new depth and vision of a glorious tomorrow. Peace and Joy to the world.
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.
What is evident to Congolese patriots is that France, like other Western powers, does not wish to see the Congo become a regional power. For Paris, this may threaten French hegemony in a region in which it has considerable interests in the resource rich countries of Gabon, Congo-Brazzaville, Cameroon and the CAR. Until the demise of the apartheid system, this was also the position of its backers here and abroad. For the West and its colonial-settler allies in South Africa, a Congo in disarray under the Mobutu kleptocracy was preferable to a strong and well organized state under the control of patriotic and Pan-African elements. For the latter would have played a critical role in the liberation of Southern Africa. The assassination of Patrice Lumumba, the support of the Katanga secession by Belgium, France, Britain and white settlers from the Congo to South Africa, and Mobutu's involvement in Angola's wars on the side of reactionary forces, were all part of this strategy. The long-standing interest of majo ...
many people find it hard to believe that the United States would ever willingly take part in any oppression resulting in the loss of millions of souls. The above link is a transcript of testimony by investigative author Wayne Madsen in May 2001 to: THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS AND HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE COMMITTEE ON INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ONE HUNDRED SEVENTH CONGRESS In attendance was African-American ex-Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, a true voice for oppressed people around the world. At the time of the hearing in 2001, the death toll in the DRC (Congo) was stated at between 1.5 and 2 million. Little has been done since then, and the death toll is now estimated at near 10 million souls. The recent media frenzy about Kony 2012 and M23, while containing some truth, was really a distraction to divert attention from the bigger picture of Western involvement. This wasn't the result of a country asserting independence. That had been quashed in the Congo in the early 1960 ...
These white men and their UN are funy, they 'harassed and Imprisoned mandela for 27 years', the man come out of Robbin Islands Prison tired, exhausted and spiritually weak. seeing that his energy and revolutionary zeal for South Africa and Africa had diminished, they 'released him' he had no option than starting a crusade to preach reconciliation and forgiveness- it was one of the conditions for his 'release'( who is Reconciling with who...?bruntant foolery) Through their conspiracies, they organized Declarke and group to hand over 'some political power' to Mandela and his ANC. The conspiracy pushed him to lead for only one term ( but in actual sense,this UN and white man's Conspiracy organised for him a toothless 32 years rule- six five years presidential terms, 27 in Robbin island and 5 in state house). After all this demonic treatment of Mandela and we the Africans,they hypocritically venerated him using their biased media BBC, CNN,...organized Mega birth day bashes for him in European Capitals, Pri .. ...
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 ...

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.

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.

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. ...

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, ...

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 ...

_NP Leaders ~ Damian Marley, Stephen Marley and Nasir Jones see you Anton Lembede, Steve Biko, Patrice Lumumba, Thomas Sankara, Amilcar Cabral, Malcolm X, Huey P. 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 . ...
WESTERN DEGREES: I notice that none of Africa's greatest men has/had a degree from Europe/North America. That gets me asking where do those fellows go and what are they doing?

A letter from a member of the British House of Lords has raised fresh questions over Western complicity in the death of Congolese leader Patrice Lumumba in 1961, the BBC's Gordon Corera reports.
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 . ...

On mine Here is one of the Hero European is not telling or teaching us about true Hero of my time, not in the 16 or 17 century yes in my time some where in 1960, there is many of us out there who are on the media bliss about Mr. Mandela don't know who Patrice Lumumba is and the role he played in Afrika but everybody knows about Mandela civil right struggle that benefit the powers to be, well my Heroes Are Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, Patrice Lumumba, Toussant, Desselien, Boukman, Kwamr Nkrumah, Samora MacHel, Thomas Sankara, Steve Biko, just to name a few, and my Living Heroes today is Robert Mugabe and the Afrikans who are out there Struggling consciously determine and dedicated to the cause of Unity and self determination, stop been blindfolded with the vale of ignorance that we are been fed for the sake of White Supremacy.
We will forever remember these heroic leaders for the strong role they have played, in the cause of the people struggles for freedom and dignity. Patrice Lumumba was an African nationalist leader and the first prime minister of the Democratic Republic of Congo. He is best known for the impact on the Congo Crisis and subsequent murder which led to incredible outcry in Africa. The circumstances surrounding his death is still a mystery although there is speculation that it was a US-sponsored plot.
MANDELA, MANDELA, THE GREAT Nelson Mandela IS DEAD. Other heroes went before him like Steve Biko. I am certain they will converse in Heaven about accomplishing their mission on earth. Mandela, the unknown prophet of God. Just like his counter part Martin Luther King. 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. I won't hesitate to include him in the class of Biblical Heroes an leaders such Abraham, Moses, Joshua, especially Joseph, Cleopatra, Esther, David, Mose ...

Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther, Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, Marcus Garvey, Patrice Lumumba,Tom Mboya, Wangari Maathai..etc...are all remembered not because of their AFFLUENCE, but because of their INFLUENCE. Ponder that.
Let recommend just a few from Patrice Lumumba, Kwame Nkrumah, Eduardo Mondlane, Amílcar Cabral, Steve Biko, Samora MacHel, and most recently John Garang,to name only a few. While malevolent forces have not used the same methods to eliminate each of these great Pan-Africanists, they have been guided by the same motive: to keep Africa in chains.

Quote - In the spring of 1960, I was the only foreign correspondent covering Patrice Lumumba in Stanleyville just before Independence, and as such and an American, I became Lumumba's confidant and the one he entrusted to mediate between himself and the Belgian administration and to get the word to Eisenhower and the American people that he was absolutely not a Communist, that he feared Russia, that he admired America, and that he wanted President Eisenhower to have his people come to America for a crash course in administration before Independence. - It was well known in the Congo before Independence that Belgium and the banking and mining interests were arranging for the coming Independence to disintegrate into chaos so they could take back Katanga with its gold, uranium and copper, and the Kasai with its industrial diamonds, while dumping the unprofitable remainder of the Congo. - The " ...

The West must not hide its true motive. Where are the Western democratic demands to Egypt, Angola, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Israel, Pakistan, and Kuwait?

Hakim, my son, is doing a report on Dedan Kimathi and the Mau Maus and all of these familiar names keep popping up. Jomo Kenyatta, Idi Amin, Patrice Lumumba. And it made me want to research all of these people that I had heard about growing up, but didn't learn anything about them. All I knew was that America hated them. Now that I'm older, I realize that America's enemies are my friends. So, I am looking into their stories and reading through the devil's propaganda to find some really powerful Black heroes. Even people like Ayatollah Khomeni, Yasser Arafat, Gamal Abdel Nasser, and more familiar names like Colonel Muammar Khadafi. All the people whom the devil hates were lovers of their people fighting against Western domination! But we (most of us) just take whatever the government tells us and swallow it, hook, line and sinker, and follow them like sheep to the slaughter. The time of the white man's domination over the original people of the Earth is up. We must wake up to the Truth of these deceitful d ...

Yomi Amoo wrote: IMPERIALISM The western powers have tried to control who runs African countries. The best documented case of western involvement in the murder of elected heads of state is that of Patrice Lumumba of the Congo, murdered with the complicity of Belgium and the USA in 1961. Lumumba was a pan- Africanist and believed in the necessity of freeing Africa from European economic domination. The USA got involved in his removal from power for two reasons. Firstly, they were interested in the Congo's copper, diamonds, cobalt, oil, uranium, and other minerals. Secondly, the 1960s were the time of the Cold War between the United Soviet States of Russia (the USSR) and the USA. In this paranoid era the USA needed someone it could trust and encourage to derail any moves by the USSR to influence Africa or procure materials. It paid Mobutu Sese Seko to help in the murder of Lumumba and then helped him organise a coup d' état in 1965 (he was given an aeroplane, for example). The corrupt Mobutu then ruled unt ...
AU should battout of charges in ICC Cases on 2008 post election violence. We saw what happen to that young boy who was shot,kick while dying by a policeman who was suppose to protect him and later the case was thrown out because of lack of evidence in the Kenyan courts. Both the police and Judiciary denied that boy justice. the clip from that camera spoke loud and clear but justice was denied as a result of the probability of it being tampered with. please AU, if you claim to love Kenya then allow ICC to do their work. let the organization not be seen as a club to champion impunity,defending corrupt leaders and their interest but to live to the standard initiated by the founding fathers, whom many were killed, toppled for standing to the interest of common man.

While you wine and dine the Princess Astrid of Belgium spare a thought for her forebearers actions in the killing of Patrice Lumumba.
Dr Amos Wilson and Chancellor Williams always stressed the importance of studying history. Blacks who know their history and who know how the system works know that neo-colonial politics will not end 300 years of imperialism. Mandela negotiated for our freedom and as result those negotiations left black people with less than 13% of land. Our leaders who fought hard against imperialism were all murdered by imperialist nations. Patrice Lumumba, Robert Sobukwe, Steve Biko, Thomas Sankara and Japtha Masemola to name a few. Robert Mugabe has survived several assassination attempts because he is a nationalist. The funny thing is even the news reporter today said Malema is loved and is glorified by the media. Only naivete causes a person to think imperialist nations will give up 3000 years of imperialism because some black man won the elections. This is not a game and it is not a Karl Marx Manifesto, this is real life and in real life most of our leaders got murdered. Imperialist Nations do not care about Africa ...

Those who were in Marikana will agree with me when i said that EFF official launch was officially a success. Members and supporters came in large numbers to witness the birth of a giant baby EFF. Spirits were so high, well organised, conducted and the speech by Commander-in-chief was very directive, touching and he hit straight to our current economic socio-political situations. Malema is the people's leader, a fearless leader like Patrice Lumumba, Thomas Sankara, Steve Biko, Chris Hani and Peter Mokaba. Even UDM leader Bantu Holomisa acknowledged EFF in his speech when he welcomed Economic Freedom Party as one of S.Africa official party that EFF came in at a right time. Those who still doubt his leadership abilities will be flabbergasted when we take ANC out of government next year and deliver Malema to Union Building. phuma zuma phuma.We are government in-waiting. Foward with EFF foward.
it was in 1944 when young afrikan men declared that; they shall fight for political freedom in their lifetime,then, in 1994 their dream was fulfilled. it was long,painful and hard 50 year journey for this great men, this political freedom they helped to bring to this great nation was devoid of any economic freedom and history called upon young generation to rescue the situation. as a result, the descendants of Garvey,AP Mda,Anthon Lembede,Robert Sobukwe,Steve Biko,Amilcar Cabral,Thomas Sankara,Patrice Lumumba,Gaddafi,Robert Mugabe,Kenneth Kaunda,Nasser,Julius Nyerere,Chris Hani,Malcom X,Fanon and others decided to pick up the spear and take forward the fight for total emancipation of the Afrika. this is the most noble,which we shall dare not betray,this call is the ECONOMIC FREEDOM IN OUR LIFETIME.iAzania izwe lethu seyalifuna, esukile!

BBC 2 History of Congo , very interesting, repeating tonight. Learn more about
US African Command (Africom) has deployed troops to 35 African countries, establishing a familiar network of authoritarian supplicants eager for bribes and armaments. In war games a "soldier to soldier" doctrine embeds US officers at every level of command from general to warrant officer. The British did this in India. It is as if Africa's proud history of liberation, from Patrice Lumumba to Nelson Mandela, is consigned to oblivion by a new master's black colonial elite – whose "historic mission", warned Frantz Fanon half a century ago, is the subjugation of their own people in the cause of "a capitalism rampant though camouflaged". The reference also fits the son of Africa in the White House, Obama

"It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness". ~Minister Louis Farrakhan It's about we match actions with words. Although many Africans and maybe, majority of people in and across countries in Africa still need to be talked to continuously because apparently, Africa is yet to get and key into enlightenment. All we have are foreign standards disguised as perfect ways for us. The time is now for African youths who are reasonably enlightened about the African ways and facts of life to start advancing the course of Africa. We will keep talking and educating our brothers and sisters especially those immersed in religious bigotry and fully baptised in their numerous destructive capabilities and tendencies as well as those inherent in tribal differences for genuine changes. We should start to light the candles of enlightenment by tapping from the power of the media. The candles must be of changes within. Without internal rejuvenation, we risk losing the wars like Patrice Lumumba, Kwame Nkrumah, Murtal ...

Cry the beloved country: Thomas Sankara, Amilcar Cabral, Patrice Lumumba, Nkwame Nkruma, Oliver Tambo, Steve Biko and Chris Thembisile Hani, to say the least, must be turning in their graves in protest against what our politics has become. Sons of the continent Ben 0kri and Frantz Fanon must also be shaking their heads in disbelief. Politics in Mzansi has been reduced to two things and two things only - spending sleepless nights to ensure a particular faction emerges triumphant from elective conferences at all costs . Subsequently , ascertaining that the vanquished are sidelined and kept in the cold for as long as the victorious faction wields power. When this splashing and flashing of illgotten wealth -ouch! access to state resources - take place, the electorate is forgotten (otherwise, the election season has come and gone). Put differently, the social contract to deliver proper services to those who matter most - the electorate - is put on the back banner. The winning faction makes sure it eats and ...
Was it for nothing that the Belgian and British armed thugs conspired to kill Patrice Lumumba just because he insisted that the Katanga privinces must not secceed from Congo. Yet the same armed thugs expressed a different view on the Lugard contraption when Biafra tried to secceed from Nigeria? They sponsored their puppet Mobutu Seseseko to kill Lumumba for attempting to prevent Katanga from breaking away from Congo and turned around to sponsor the Hausa/fulani puppet Yakubu Gowon to kill Ojukwu and his people for attempting to breakaway from Nigeria. The criminal colonial activities of Britain and their allied thuggish European neighbours on Africa is very depressing! Huge trillions and quadrillion dollars worth of stolen African resources were what they used to develop their various cities in Europe. Some centuries latter, those stolen resources have been exhausted, and they are now poor. Instead of them to go cap in hands to beg Africa for help, they are using proxy methods to intimidate and bully Afri ...
Africans are quick to celebrate a racist pig like Mahatma Ghandi but they can't celebrate their own leaders. Leaders like Patrice Lumumba, Steve Biko, Malcolm X, Robert Sobukwe, Harriet Tubman, Huey Newton, Khalid Muhammad, Amos Wilson, Marcus Garvey and Japtha Masemola died fighting for our freedom. The least we can do is to honour them and hail them as African heroes. Mahatma Ghandi is not a hero. He was a racist who hated black people. I dont know why Africans love him so much. People like Verwoerd and D.F Malan should not even have streets named after them, they were evil and they were racists. Study your history black people and empower yourselves. Stop honouring foreign leaders more than you do your own. Africa for Africans.
If: Patrice Lumumba, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Emperor Haile Selassie, Amilcar Cabral, Samora MacHel, Steve Bantu Biko, Julius Nyerere, Robert Sobukwe, Macolm X, Marcus Garvey, Dr. Amos Wilson, Frantz Fanon, Kwame Ture, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Thomas Sankara, Ahmed Sékou Touré, etc and many others in this circle. Had these revolutionaries kept quoting earlier Afrocentric and Pro-Black leaders, writing and essentially saying nothing but the rehearsed words of their predecessors we would not have the works and thoughts of their we are blessed with we the modern generation keep quoting, and sometimes unfortunately, without even pausing to think and apply those words in ours actions and push for their visions to be fulfilled. I do not wish to fault my fellow brothers and sisters who are genuinely tuned in and concerned about Black suffering, inequality and injustice that afflicts us. The family who demand the land back, whose wills will not stop at anything until liberation is achieved, but I wish to voice my concern ...
I HAVE A DREAM!   As our brothers and sisters continue to suffer in the hands of rebels in DR Congo, Nigeria, Somalia; as Libya, Tunisia, and Egypt still try to find solution to their course; as poverty, food security, unemployment, lack of infrastructure and neo colonialism still loom over us, the cry for the unification of our motherland has become even more louder than never before.   I HAVE A DREAM! I HAVE A DREAM!! In my DREAM, this is what I see…. Give me a moment of your time so I share with you this DREAM.  This DREAM is in similitude of the DREAM our founding fathers; Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Julius Nyarere, Patrice Lumumba, Gabrielle Haile Selassie I, Sekou Troure, Leon M'Ba, Houphouet Boigny, the list continues...   In my DREAM, I saw a new land with her people. Though ancient was the land and her people, yet she has had a new birth. She is Africa and her new name is United African States (UAS). She has charismatic and vibrant leaders with a historic vision, and a worldwide network to ...

Some people are truly jealous of others' talents! They'd rather credit a supernatural being for someone else's brilliance that just humble themselves and say "mate, you're fantastic. I appreciate your genius" or "so and so was an exceptionally brilliant human being in this and that respect" and then leave it at that. Instead I keep hearing things like: "There has to be a god, wow listen to that composition by Mozart/Schubert" "John Coltrane is proof that god exists and loves us so much that he sent him as a gift to humanity" Why not just give credit where it is due? You will not be diminished in any way by admitting that someone is great at something, without appealing to supernatural entities to explain how someone does what you cannot do, and in that same breath I would like to cherish a few geniuses: Malcolm X, Steve Biko, Patrice Lumumba, Thomas Sankara, Dr. Mark Dean, Banna Ka (Anglicised Banneker), Chinua Achebe, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Mozart, Nikolas Tesla, Schubert, Michael Jackson, Muhammad ...
By Banire Abiodun Saturday, 07 September 2013. Dear Fela As you mark the 16th anniversary of your transition and communion with your pan-African forebears, it is not my desire to taint celebration with the woes of an incorrigibly sick nation, but I feel obligated to do so considering the inimitable doggedness and sacrifices you made for this country. I chose the occasion to write to you as you complete the 16th corpus of the Ifa system, a condition for your coronation as “chief priest” of the great beyond. As this occasion has the likes of Martin Luther King, Malcolm “X”, Thomas Sankara, Ben Bella, Seko Toure, Patrice Lumumba and Kwame Nkrumah (who obviously will chair the event) in attendance with cups filled with wine, I hope you wait and ponder before joining in the revelry. Today, Martin Luther King’s America is a model and cynosure of human liberty, as even a black man is president, which more than fulfils his “I Have A Dream” project. Even Malcolm “X” must be smiling now as blacks ...

Self Education is the pinnacle of true knowledge, let me leave you guys with a quote from Ngugi. '' In a special way, the liberation of South Africa is the key to the liberation of the entire continent from neo-colonialism'' - Ngugi Wa Thiongo :)
After reading Nelson Mandela's book, "NO EASY WALK TO FREEDOM", I could not hesitate to soliloquise that Nelson Mandela is indeed the greatest African leader ever lived. I again asked myself how many African leaders today can ever stand the task of him and the likes of Dr Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Patrice Lumumba of Congo, Abdel Nasser of Egypt, Haile Selassie of Ethopia, Julius Nyerere of Tanzania and so on. Mandela started facing problems right at home and at a time has to run away to Johannesburg to escape an early marriage arranged for him. In his political carreer he encounted so many problems; from imprisonments to exile together with some leading members of the African National Congress (ANC). When the apartheid reared its ugly head in South Africa under the ideology and auspices of Hendrik Fransch Verwoerd, Mandela and his co-leader Walter Sisulu and Albert John Lithuli the then president of ANC stood firmly against the white supremacy and racial discrimination and led their people to struggle for f ...
