Calls for Belgium to return Patrice Lumumba's tooth have intensified in the last few years. Lumumba was the first elected Prime minister of Congo. He was overthrown by rebels and killed as the Belgian government played a very big role in the brutal murder of the leader. After killing him, they dumped his body into corrosive acid so that he can be totally destroyed
By good luck one Belgian police officer took his tooth while he was helping to dispose his body. A Belgian Judge ordered the government to return his tooth which is yet to be returned. The reports says that the Coronavirus pandemic has made the return of the tooth very difficult. Lumumba was killed in 1961 and it's 60 years without any of his remains in congo. His daughter Juliana has called the government to return his tooth in the land of his ancestor. The spokesman of the federal prosecutor office made it clear that his tooth will be returned to Congo. All Africans are still waiting for this last remains so that they can be buried with honor.
