A young friend reminded me of this today.
50 years ago Patrice Lumumba was assassinated by the CIA, who regarded him as an enemy, an upstart who wanted his country’s riches to benefit the country’s own people and not those of the coloniser and the US companies who owned so many mines there.
All through history, assassinations of those who want something other than the powerful want.
Warnings for South Africa, we have people behaving like the CIA, killing those who are the ‘enemies’ of the powerful, because they want betterment for all citizens.
Maybe our own version of WIKILEAKS will eventually come out. Hmmmmmmmm…… one wonders
