Joli thread Pius!

Ci-dessous, le monument Bouclier de la révolution au Mont Ngaliema, œuvre de Maitre Liyolo. Pour la petite anecdote, il est placé à l'endroit où Stanley avait regardé le fleuve

Ah ! La folie des hommes…Est-ce que Mobutu croyait vraiment qu’en déboulonnant la statue de Stanley pour ériger « le révolutionnaire muni d’un bouclier », le rôle historique de Stanley dans la fondation du Congo disparaîtrait au profit du sien? Le sergent-comptable de l’armée coloniale en avait de la suite dans les idées

The Goma Chukudu Monument (2009)



President Jospeh Kabila had this "Chukudu" monument erected in the center of Goma as a symbol of the hard work and sustained effort of the people of the area.
