said, “generally speaking, crocs don’t leave bullets holes in bodies”. The prisoner managed to escape in one of the guard’s car. the car landed in a ditch, and a bunch of villagers shot and killed him. (pg 129) 12) According to Jacques Brassine, what can be considered a fabrication on the death certificates of Patrice Lumumba, Maurice Mpolo, and Joseph Okito? All of these men were killed by firing squad. Any medical examiner who examined the body would be able to determine the most likely cause of death. The fabrication was that they never saw the body and signed the death certificate so the signature was null. He signed it under fraudulent circumstances (pg 144) 13) What questions arise from a careful study of Alexandre Belina’s scenario of the pseudo escape? Alexandre Belina was the legal advisor. Why did the Katanga regime announce the escape and THEN said he was dead, how do you know what’s going on in his life? Why
didn’t they arrange it in a way so that the search for the fugitive ended in failure? Why didn’t they attribute Lumumba’s death to the beating he received on the plane? You couldn’t say any of this because CLEARLY, he died by being shot. 14) What was the Commission of Inquiry and who made up this commission? Race played a role here. It was in their interest to make the commission of inquiry diverse. 15) What was the primary aim of the Commission of Inquiry? The primary aim of the Commission of Inquiry was to find out what happened with Lumumba. To create the illusion that they were actually doing something when nothing was being done.
