Happy Independence Day to everyone Democratic Republic of Congo!

After years of colonial rule by the Belgians, beginning with King Leopold II and his ruthless ambitions to secure colonial territory in Africa starting in the late 1870s, followed by the establishing of the Congo Free State from 1885-1908, which later became known as the Belgian Congo in the early 20th century, the area known today as the Democratic Republic of Congo officially became an independent nation on June 30th, 1960.

The fight for Congo’s independence was led primarily by the first democratically elected Prime Minister of the Republic of the Congo, Patrice Lumumba who would later be brutally assassinated after a Mobuto-led coup deposed him of his position after only three months in office. Lumumba’s assassination was carried out with involvement from British and Belgian governments, the United States (CIA), and local Congolese leaders who opposed Lumumba’s political developments.
