Felix Moumie

Felix Moumie was a Cameroonian independence leader, popularly referred to as the Lumumba of Cameroun for his spectacular role in the fight for Cameroun independence from the French. He became the leader of the Union des Populations du Cameroun, a left-wing political party that started in 1947. He was particularly celebrated for his nationalistic outlook and his contributions to rid the country of colonial vestiges. In 1960, he was poisoned in Geneva, far away from his beloved country and his body was buried controversially in Guinea, embalmed and placed in a sarcophagus.
