Letter from one of the most evil King Leopold II of Belgium to Colonial Missionaries, 1883

Reverends, Fathers and Dear Compatriots: 

The task that is given to fulfill is very delicate 

and requires much tact. You will go certainly to evangelize, but your evangelization must inspire 

above all Belgium interests. Your principal objective in our mission in the Congo is never to teach 

the niggers to know God, this they know already. They speak and submit to a Mungu, one Nzambi, 

one Nzakomba, and what else I don't know. They know that to kill, to sleep with someone else's 

wife, to lie and to insult is bad. Have courage to admit it; you are not going to teach them what they 

know already. Your essential role is to facilitate the task of administrators and industrials, which 

means you will go to interpret the gospel in the way it will be the best to protect your interests in 

that part of the world. For these things, you have to keep watch on disinteresting our savages from 

the richness that is plenty [in their underground. To avoid that, they get interested in it, and make 

you murderous] competition and dream one day to overthrow you. 

Your knowledge of the gospel will allow you to find texts ordering, and encouraging your 

followers to love poverty, like “Happier are the poor because they will inherit the heaven” and, “It's 

very difficult for the rich to enter the kingdom of God.” You have to detach from them and make 

them disrespect everything which gives courage to affront us. I make reference to their Mystic 

System and their war fetish – warfare protection – which they pretend not to want to abandon, and 

you must do everything in your power to make it disappear. 

Your action will be directed essentially to the younger ones, for they won't revolt when the 

recommendation of the priest is contradictory to their parent's teachings. The children have to learn 

to obey what the missionary recommends, who is the father of their soul. You must singularly insist 

on their total submission and obedience, avoid developing the spirit in the schools, teach students to 

read and not to reason. There, dear patriots, are some of the principles that you must apply. You will 

find many other books, which will be given to you at the end of this conference. Evangelize the 

niggers so that they stay forever in submission to the white colonialists, so they never revolt against 

the restraints they are undergoing. Recite every day – “Happy are those who are weeping because 

the kingdom of God is for them.”

Convert always the blacks by using the whip. Keep their women in nine months of 

submission to work freely for us. Force them to pay you in sign of recognition-goats, chicken or 

eggs-every time you visit their villages. And make sure that niggers never become rich. Sing every 

day that it's impossible for the rich to enter heaven. Make them pay tax each week at Sunday mass. 

Use the money supposed for the poor, to build flourishing business centres. Institute a confessional 

system, which allows you to be good detectives denouncing any black that has a different 

consciousness contrary to that of the decision-maker. Teach the niggers to forget their heroes and to 

adore only ours. Never present a chair to a black that comes to visit you. Don't give him more than 

one cigarette. Never invite him for dinner even if he gives you a chicken every time you arrive at 

his house. 

“The above speech which shows the real intention of the Christian missionary journey in 

Africa was exposed to the world by Mr. Moukouani Muikwani Bukoko, born in the Congo in 1915, 

and who in 1935 while working in the Congo, bought a second hand Bible from a Belgian priest 

who forgot the speech in the Bible. – Dr. Chiedozie Okoro 

We should note: 

1] that all missionaries carried out, and still carry out, that mandate. We are only lucky to 

have found King Leopold's articulation of the aim of all Christian imperialist missionaries to Africa. 

2] Even the African converts who today manage the older churches in Africa (the priests, 

bishops, Archbishops, Cardinals etc of the Roman and Protestant sects), and especially also those 

who evangelize Born-Again Christianity, still  serve the same mandate. Which is why they 

demonize African gods and Anglicize African names, and drop the names of African deities which 

form part of African names; and still attack and demolish the African shrines that have managed to 

survive, e.g. Okija. 

3] Those Africans who voluntarily converted to Christianity  before the colonial conquest 

such as Affonso I of the BaKongo in the 15th century probably did not discern the purpose of the 

brand of Christianity that was supplied to them. Which was probably why they fell easy prey to the 

missionaries and the white traders and pirates who followed them. 

But their Japanese counterparts probably did discern the game, even without access to some 

version of Leopold's letter. But even if the Japanese Shoguns did not intuit what Leopold makes 

explicit, they clearly realized the danger of Japanese converts to Christianity forming a fifth column 

within Japanese society and state, a fifth column loyal to their co-religionists in Europe. To rid 

Japan of that danger, in the late 16th century, the Shoguns began their expulsion of Portuguese and 

Spanish missionaries on the grounds that they were forcing Japanese to become Christian, teaching 

their disciples to wreck temples, taking and trading slaves, etc. Then, in 1596, it became clear to the 

Japanese authorities that Christianization had been a prelude to Spanish conquest of other lands; and Letter from King Leopold II of Belgium to Colonial Missionaries, 1883                            3 

it quickly dawned on them that a fifth column loyal to Rome and controlled by the priests of a 

foreign religion was a clear and present danger to the sovereignty of a newly unified Japan. Soon 

after, the persecution and suppression of Japanese Christians began. Early in the 17th century, 

sensing the danger from a creed that taught obedience to foreign priests rather than the Japanese 

authorities, all missionaries were ordered to leave and all Japanese were ordered to register at the 

Buddhist temples. When Japanese Christians took part in a rebellion, foreign priests were executed, 

the Spanish were expelled and Japanese Christians were forbidden to travel abroad. After another 

rebellion, largely by Christians, was put down, the Japanese Christians were suppressed and their 

descendants were put under close state surveillance for centuries thereafter.  In the 1640s all 

Japanese suspected of being Christians were ruthlessly exterminated. Thus did Japan, by 1650, save 

itself from the first European attempt to mentally subvert, conquer and colonize it. 

4] The African captives who were taken abroad and enslaved, and the Africans at home after 

the European conquest, having already been forcibly deprived of their autonomy, were in no 

political position to resist Christianization. Thus the Christianity still practised in all of the African 

American diaspora, just as that in the African homeland since the start of the 20th century, 

continues to carry out the Leopoldian mandate. 

Hence, for example, whereas the White Born-Agains of the USA, when in the US Navy 

ships in WWII, sang: 

“Praise the Lord, 

And pass the ammunition,” the attitude of African Born-Again converts today is best 

summed up as: 

“Praise the Lord, 

And lie down for the manna.” 

Thanks to a century or more of this Leopold-mandated missionary mind control, African 

Christians are not an activist,  self-helping, economically engaged, politically resolute, let alone 

militant bunch. Hence their putting up with all manner of mistreatment and exploitation by their 

misrulers, white and black. The most they are disposed to do to their misrulers is to admonish them 

to “Fear God!” – as one protester's miserable placard read in last week's Lagos demonstration 

against the latest of the murderous fuel price hikes by the OBJ Misgovernment. The idea of an 

uprising to tame their misrulers is alien to the religiously opiated frame of mind of the Nigerians. 

5] The lesson in the contrast between an Africa that the Christian missionaries brainwashed 

and subverted, and a Japan where this brainwashing and subversion was forcibly prevented, is stark

 Congo robber farm.

and clear. What then must Africans of today begin to do to save themselves from brainwashing by 

their White World enemies here on earth? – That is the question.



The Belgians, under orders of King Leopold II hung thousands of Congolese citizens.

Congolese women reality: Shackled together, enslaved in their own homeland, held as hostages until their men returned with enough rubber to make King Leopold and the Belgium people rich beyond their wildest dreams. While impoverishing and enslaving the native people.

That is our problem: As a people, we are too nice to a fault! We should have immediately killed every single last one of them as soon as they stepped foot on our lands. The Japanese and Chinese weren't so nice, especially when they saw what was happening. Good for them! Unfortunately, the Japanese were eventually punished for not allowing foreign invaders to force Christianity down their throats.
