Young people gathered at the Belgian Embassy in Kinshasa on November 3 with a coffin to claim the remains of the first Prime Minister of the DRC, Patrice Lumumba, and to bury him with dignity in a grave.
According to these young people, it was Belgium that assassinated the Congolese National Hero, as testified by Gérard Soete, the then Belgian Police Commissioner who admits, in that documentary on the death of the Congolese National Hero, having carved Patrice with the saw and holding 2 of his teeth.
In a political context where the mother country turns more and more it back on the current regime in Kinshasa, the aim of this descent seems also to be a reminder to humanity of the responsibility of Belgium in the current Congolese political situation whose roots are far away.
Indeed, Gérard Soete and his brother, who carved Lumumba, claim to have diluted the parts of his body in sulfuric acid. On May 15, 2001, Soete even told AFP that he threw the two teeth of Lumumba, which he kept, in the North Sea.
