An official ceremony to hand back the tooth is being held in Brussels. We’ll speak to our correspondent there after this report on who Patrice Lumumba was – and how he died.

  1. Lumumba’s killers were Congolese, and occurred after he asked the Soviets to come in to put down a secessionist movement in the north, and we know how something like that worked out later, it's called Afghanistan. CIA plot using poison failed, and again, only set in motion after Lumumba reached out to the Soviets. In 1975, American Congress made political assassination illegal. We were never very good at it anyway, Castro lived to a ripe old age.

  2. SO MUCH PAIN WAS AND IS STILL INFLICTED IN THE HEART OF AFRICANS. WE DID NOTHING TO THE WHITE MAN OR WEST BUT ALL THEY DID AND ARE STILL DOING TO INFLICTING PAIN ON AFRICANS. THESE ARE THE REASONS AFRICA NATIONS ARE WITH RUSSIA AGAINST THE WEST. RUSSIA IS THEIR MEDICINE AND THEIR DOWNFALL.

  3. Kenyans are still waiting for Koitalel Arap Samoei's skull from the British. The same British have never revealed where Dedan Kimathi's remains are. Why were these white people so evil?

  4. Nobody has been prosecuted for his murder yet we know that the government killed him and cut his body to pieces.
    This is nonsense
    Belgium should be held accountable for his killing

  5. Brussels must be made accountable ever! Its not settling between Brussels and family only BUT Brussels with People of Congo and humanity in general. How can u destroy the body in acid a person who never went to court?Had never been apology from brussels no prosecution for the killers untill today! Congo stand firm for this untill justice done

  6. They killed Lumumba but they simply made his ideas remain thus making him immortal. Like all who have fought for freedom, peace and independence he shall live forever in our heart.

  7. Congo is the heart of Africa, and the world knows that with making this vast country ungovernable, Afrca will never realize it's full economic potential. The west should know that we keep this in our hearts. They installed and supported puppets for their own interests, and now they are arming rebels. They should now do something better and stop lamenting about the Chinese. A world is a better place when we're all developed, that's the Chinese belief and that's a better economics. Creating potential customers goes with developing the customer to have higher demands.

  8. It's just amazing that the west talk about human right and democracy with such records of crime and brutality which it still practice till date while pointing accusing fingers at China and Russia: I guess it's a distraction tactics.

  9. ⭐… "OUR FIGHT IS NOT TO LOVE OR HATE THE SETTLER, IT'S A MATTER OF SOVEREIGNTY AND SURVIVAL".

    … "SAID" ONE "DAY": "PATRICE EMERY LUMUMBA" … WHO ALSO "SAID": "WITHOUT DIGNITY THERE IS NO FREEDOM, WITHOUT JUSTICE THERE IS NO DIGNITY AND WITHOUT INDEPENDENCE THERE ARE NO FREE MEN. … !!!

  10. I'm an African from Uganda East Africa, from today I have started to hate European countries for this reason and I support Asian countries particularly China and Russia which did not engage in colonialism and slavery in Africa

  11. Why this sudden glorification of Patrice Lumumba by Belgium and rest of the Western World? There must be some motive……

    And, when the Colonial powers will compensate by reparation countries like Congo, India and Ethiopia etc which the repressed and looted for 100 years. Just a tooth in return…. is hilarious….

  12. Belgium don't have moral responsibility on the case, as they lack morality. They're simply guilty of his killing. Europeans, despite their claim of higher mortality and civilization they proved to be dangerously barbaric.

  13. Africa beware. There is a reason why all these symbolic things are being returned and apologies are being issued to Africa as of late. It's just like in America, they passify you with symbolic gestures and political theatre to have you ignore the major/more important play. Please pay attention and prepare accordingly.

  14. I will avenge you Uncle Lumumba.
    Thanks for your services and fights against these criminals.
    Rest in Peace and you will always love on my heart.

  15. It is a shame for your colonisers, looters, torcherers , thieves and killers come back to you with a tooth of your hero. That's not what DRC people expect. Return looted natural resources too, help them build better and bigger their nation. Handing over a tooth? After Belgian Kingdom murdering him using assassins? Whatever you Belgians do, won't remove that curse and scar , you will always be remembered as Immoral Torturers, Killers and Thieves … that is how Africans know you , and will last forever

  16. the country of Germany is no different done Belgium when its come to the evil they have committed against Africa and it's people all their money cannot erase this evil against Africa

  17. The Law of Karma grinds slowly and what goes around comes around. Africa must learn her lessons. Our Pan Africa heros were all murdered by the colonialist. And they turn around to shed crocodile tears and wonder why Africa is still not developed.

  18. Let’s not absolve the Americans for their part in Patrice’s murder, which was really a political assassination orchestrated by the CIA.
