Patrice Lumumba, the first prime minister of the Republic of the Congo and a pioneer of African unity, was at the centre of the country's popular defiance towards the relentless exploitation of its Belgian coloniser. Within months of independence being won he Patrice Lumumba was arrested, tortured and executed. "The Murder of Lumumba" reveals the appalling mass of lies that have surrounded the murder. Uncovering official sources and personal testimony, it reveals a network of complicity ranging from the Belgian government to the United Nations and the CIA.
