SEARCH HERE FOR BOOKS
"Political Leadership in Africa" is a series of books that shine a light on extraordinary African political leaders, so that people around the world, especially politicians, journalists and students, will pay new attention to Africa, its history and its people.
Indeed, Patrice Emery Lumumba "Ahead of His Time" is the first volume in the series. This book is a detailed political analysis of an extraordinary politician, who became prime minister when the Democratic Republic of Congo gained its independence in 1960. Although his life was cut short, Patrice Lumumba was undoubtedly an exceptional political leader. The consequences of the events that led to the liberation of the Democratic Republic of Congo would have been profoundly different without his impact on the political outcome. He is now described as a hero, a martyr, a prophet and the Abraham Lincoln of African politics.
