It’s funny how I have a better conversation in my head with myself, than I do with most people.
On this day in the year 1925, Patrice Émery Lumumba was born.
He was the first democratically elected prime minister of the Republic of Congo. He founded the “Mouvment national congolais” party and with that successfully helped his country gain independence from Belgium in 1960.
He was however executed a year later. It is important to note that The United States (The CIA to be exact), Belgium and the United Kingdom were all involved in his death.
Rest in Power.
