Patrice Lumumba, was an African activist and panafricanist who was killed in the 1960's by Africans taking orders from the West. These types of killing are still taking place up to this day (Influential Black leaders killed for their beliefs).
We are not there yet.
This is what we get from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia about this great African Congolese:
[Debut of Wikipedia abstract]
Patrice Émery Lumumba (/lʊˈmʊmbə/; alternatively styled Patrice Hemery Lumumba; 2 July 1925 – 17 January 1961) was a Congolese politician and independence leader who served as the first Prime Minister of the independent Democratic Republic of the Congo (then Republic of the Congo) from June until September 1960. He played a significant role in the transformation of the Congo from a colony of Belgium into an independent republic. Ideologically an African nationalist and Pan-Africanist, he led the Congolese National Movement (MNC) party from 1958 until his assassination.
Shortly after Congolese independence in 1960, a mutiny broke out in the army, marking the beginning of the Congo Crisis. Lumumba appealed to the United States and the United Nations for help to suppress the Belgian-supported Katangan secessionists. Both refused, so Lumumba turned to the Soviet Union for support. This led to growing differences with President Joseph Kasa-Vubu and chief-of-staff Joseph-Désiré Mobutu, as well as with the United States and Belgium, who opposed the Soviet Union in the Cold War.
Lumumba was subsequently imprisoned by state authorities under Mobutu and executed by a firing squad under the command of Katangan authorities. Following his assassination, he was widely seen as a martyr for the wider Pan-African movement. In 2002, Belgium formally apologised for its role overseeing the assassination of Lumumba.

Patrice Lumumba was killed by a, Black, African firing squad.
How many of us are ready to do anything for money?
Righteousness need to be incorporated in our mind, soul and DNA through constant repetition until righteousness becomes our identity. Until we are righteous we will not be truly united nor victorious.
I had a discussion with an old wise African brother today, this is what he told me:
"The day we, the original people, the blessed owners of the richest continent on Earth, accepted to enter the White man monetary system and accepted paper money and void coins not backed by anything, we actually handed our power and soul to them."
Our brains stopped working properly that day, that is why we are represented by leaders that have no veto right at the United Nations.
We've handed our power to them.
Time to unplug from them.
