We remember young African revolutionary leaders who were assassinated

Today we remember the highly intelligent, revolutionary, fearless African political leaders and activists who were assassinated towards independence and after their respective countries attained independence. From the turmoil in DR Congo which many trace to the assassination of Patrice Lumumba to the spirit of uprightness in Burkina Faso, which many say still has the spirit of Sankara hovering over it, most colonial powers have been responsible for these assassinations. We take a look and reflect on these young African revolutionary leaders who died for their cause to see a free and liberated Africa.

Our present orientation is not necessarily rooted in African thought, culture and heritage.
