    A very worthwhile read So much has been written about Patrice Lumumba, it s a privilege to be able to read some of his own words.The second section is dedicated to other people s accounts of him, mostly by journalists who met him This gives another perspective on the man and politician, although the accounts are quite similar, with a similar sentiment.
