Patrice Lumumba was elevated to "hero of national independence of the Congo" while his family did not have official confirmation of the death of the first "Prime Minister of Congo" in 2000 with the publication of "firebrand" the Belgian sociologist Ludo de Witte, "The Assassination of Lumumba, Karthala, Paris, 2000," based on the archives of the Foreign Ministry, which had forced the Belgian official to admit its responsibility in eradicating the Congolese leader .
Belgium was forced to form a parliamentary committee responsible for shedding light on the plot against the Congolese leader.
