It is always refreshing to hear news of human confession. This seems like a story of the revelation of ?the evil that men do?, that according to Shakespeare, ?lives after them?, while ?the good may be interred in their bones?.

Whether elected Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba was a communist or not was not the responsibility or duty of the British, Americans, or Belgians. It is quite unfortunate that the very men and women who often claim, or are taught Christianity and love for others, according to their teachings, are among the worst human beings when it comes to human relations and the principles of ?eat and let me eat? as the Akans of Ghana teach. For hundreds of years Europeans travelled around the world, taking other nations? resources by force of arms, as if they were the only creations of God. With the greed and selfishness, they justified their evil greed with Christian teachings, while capturing other humans and using them as slaves.

Luckily for humankind there were and are still some good Christians. The world looks on now to see what the Euro-American community of power brokers will do to restore peace as the Congo is embroiled in war in the last half century since this crime of assassination of en elected leader, Patrice Lumumba, was conducted. It is our hope that the UN in collaboration with Britain, Belgium, and the US will find a lasting solution to bring peace and civilized elected governance to the Congo.

British spies admitted helping to organise the detention and execution of the first prime minister of the Democratic Republic of Congo in the 1960s, a peer has claimed.

Baroness (Daphne) Park of Monmouth, who was the senior MI6 officer in the African country at the time, said she had ?organised it?, according to the Labour peer Lord Lea.

Independence leader Patrice Lumumba was arrested, tortured and executed just months after becoming the first democratically elected prime minister of the DRC in 1960.

Although rebel forces carried out the killing, it has long been claimed that foreign intelligence agencies played a part.

Belgium, from which Lumumba won independence, apologised in 2002 for having some responsibility by failing to prevent his death, while in 2006 documents showed the CIA had plotted to assassinate him but the plot was abandoned.

However, Lord Lea of Crondall, claims he was told by Baroness Park herself that MI6 had also played a role.

He made the revelation in response to a review of a book by Calder Walton in to British intelligence in the London Review of Books.

Lord Lea wrote: ?Referring to the controversy surrounding the death of Patrice Lumumba in1960, Bernard Porter quotes Calder Walton?s conclusion: ?The question remains whether British plots to assassinate Lumumba ever amounted to anything. At present, we do not know? .

?Actually, in this particular case, I can report that we do. It so happens that I was having a cup of tea with Daphne Park ? we were colleagues from opposite sides of the Lords ? a few months before she died in March 2010.

?She had been consul and first secretary in Leopoldville, now Kinshasa, from 1959 to 1961, which in practice (this was subsequently acknowledged) meant head of MI6 there.

?I mentioned the uproar surrounding Lumumba?s abduction and murder, and recalled the theory that MI6 might have had something to do with it. ?We did,? she replied, ?I organised it.??

Lord Lea went on to claim Baroness Park had indicated that the reason was because of concerns that Lumumba may be a communist siding with Soviet Russia.
