Assassination of LumumbaDocument A1.The textbook portrays Lumumba and his leadership in the Congo as not greatbecause he opposed European influence, causing many people to leave. The army also mutinied because they didn’t like the way Lumumba led. 2.According to the document, I think Kasavubu assassinated Lumumba becausehe caused their country to go into a crisis. People were leaving and refusing to follow orders, and provinces were seceding, so he may have done it to end the crisis. 3.I think this is a trustworthy document because it is a textbook, and many people should be learning about a truthful history. Also, since it’s a textbook, it should be unbiased. Document B1.The King of Belgium and the new president of the Congo, Joseph Kasavubu gave the speech on June 30, 1960.2.Lumumba describes the Belgian colonialism as unfair treatment such as forced labor in exchange for pay that did not allow them to to satisfy their hunger, to clothe themselves or to have a decent shelter. The law was never the same for the white and the black. He also describes it by saying that Congo’s independence was proclaimed by agreement with Belgium, meaning Belgium treated them in this manner. *I think it made Belgium listeners feel mad because Lumumba is saying that Belgians treated the Congolese unfairly. I think it made them feel relieved because Congo is finally independent. *I think it made Congolese listeners feel happy that they are finally free from the unfair treatment of the Belgians. I think it made them feel relieved and excited because the country’s future is in their hands.
