Question: “Some of your political opponents accuse you of being a Communist. Could you reply to that?”
Answer: “This is a propagandist trick aimed at me. I am not a Communist. The colonialists have campaigned against me throughout the country because I am a revolutionary and demand the abolition of the colonial regime, which ignored our human dignity. They look upon me as a Communist because I refused to be bribed by the imperialists.”
(From an interview to a “France-Soir” correspondent on July 22, 1960)

Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba of the Republic of Congo (now Democratic Republic of Congo)
