Joseph Kabila Kabange, President of Democratic Republic of Congo

Joseph Kabila Kabange, President of Democratic Republic of Congo

"King Kabila but how long? Congolese president must step down. His regime is a state of raw capitalism. The stinking network of the family of Kabila. Kabila is everywhere and fully intertwined with business and industry."

These are some of the unpalatable sub-headings which appeared in Belgium's newspaper 'De Morgen,' pertaining Kabila, the president of Congo, on Monday, December 19, 2016. And as we all know, this is how Belgium starts if the country wants to cause political unrest, violence, and bloodshed in Africa, as it had been in the past.

There is a reason Belgium can't leave Congo alone and always interfering in its politics. Congo made Belgium after King Leopold II's greed. If Congo wasn't good for Belgium, it wouldn't have been the personal property of Leopold II, to name the country 'Belgian Congo' before independence. 

And after independence in 1960, the pain of losing that precious African colony led to the assassination of Patrice Lumumba, the newly elected Prime Minister. 

Even though Belgium has apologized for their role in killing Lumumba, it's an apology without remorse, the reason the government and the Royal Family are keeping the statue of Leopold II, after killing over 10 million Congolese, including women and children.

The International Criminal Court

Belgium could probably be the smallest country in Europe but the crimes this tiny country on the map of Europe has committed in Africa, is shocking and unbelievable. 

Belgium is responsible for the Rwanda genocide but the International Criminal Court ignored their role and rather jailed two Rwandan nuns. They also took part by inflicting man-made diseases such as Ebola on Congolese.

This is the reason many African leaders are angry with the ICC and want to withdraw their membership. What is the significance of the International Criminal Court if they can't monitor factors in Europe escalating to political violence in Africa?

Or why the International Criminal Court finds it hard to warn the Belgium government or the media for trying to cause political upheavals and violence in Africa or bringing European and American leaders responsible for political crimes to The Hague?

Do they expect everyone to give them applause for this kind of discriminatory work they are doing over there? Certainly, nobody is interested any longer in ICC, except the corrupt ones like Kofi Annan because birds of the same feathers flock together.

There is time for everything. The West must stop instigating political violence in Africa and if they do, the International Criminal Court should react for everyone to know that they are doing a good job.

Europe or America has no right to force any African leader to step down. The Organization of African Unity can handle such problems within Africa themselves.
