What Lady Nym would wear in mourning, J mendal

Africa is the devil’s kitchen where neo-imperialists, mercenaries, buccaneers, large-scale thieves, and murderers often come to work their witchcraft.
The recent descent of South Sudan into genocidal bloodletting only two years after independence is explained away as a tribal conflict between the Dinka and the Nuer, just another little bit of slaughter by those Africans. But nothing is ever what it appears to be, I am beginning to think.
South Sudan is going the way of that other wealthy African country, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Whenever you see African wealth, trouble cannot be too far off.
A friend, a neo-imperialist of the first water, thoughtfully bought me a book titled ‘How To Kill: The Definitive History of the Assassin’, with a little inscription, “Time for a change of career”. Written by British journalist and best-selling author, Kris Hollington, I found it fascinating.
The part about Patrice Lumumba, the 35-year-old postal clerk who was the first, and perhaps only, truly democratically elected leader of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, is not only troubling but it exposes the real game being played in Africa.
Lumumba, a charismatic and arrogant man, had an ungoverned tongue. He sealed his own fate by announcing that he would nationalise the country’s copper mines, the biggest in the world and controlled, of course, by the Belgians.
He was one African trying to pull out of the colonial mouth the fat tit that fed this little European country.
At independence, he had turned to Belgian King Baudouin and said: “From today, we are no longer your monkeys.” Earlier in New York, he had told American businessmen: “The exploitation of the mineral riches of the Congo should be primarily for the profit of our own impoverished people and other Africans.””
Russia’s like ‘go the fuck to sleep, douchebags.’
