Extrait from Robin Walker's book, ‘WHEN WE RULED'
“When they arrived in the coast of Guinea and landed at Vaida in West Africa, the captains were astonished to find streets well laid out. The roads were bordered on either side for several leagues by two rows of trees, for days they travelled through a country of magnificant fields, inhabited by men clad in richly coloured garments of their own weaving! Further south in the Kingdom of the Kongo, a swarming crowd dressed in fine silks’ and velvet; great states well ordered, down to the most minute detail; powerful rulers, flourishing industries-civilised to the marrow of their bones. And the condition of the countries of the eastern coast-mozambique, for example-was quite the same.”
The Kingdom of Kongo was a flourishing state in the 15th century. It was situated in the region of Northern Angola and West Kongo. Its population was conservatively estimated at 2 or 3 million people. The country was divided into 6 administrative provinces and a number of dependancies. The provinces were Mbamba, Mbata, Mpangu, Mpemba, Nsundi, and Soyo. The dependancies included Matari, Wamdo, Wembo and the province of Mbundu. All in turn were subject to the authority of The Mani Kongo (King). The capital of the country (Mbanza Kongo), was in the Mpemba province. From the province of Mbamba, the military stronghold. It was possible to put 400,000 in the field.''

In Cuba, the first slaves arrived from Haiti in 1513 and then in 1520, 300 slaves arrived from Africa Kongo, followed by others from the Kongo and other parts of West Africa.
In 1885 Kongo became a Belgium colony as the scramble for Africa meant that it was divided like a cake amongst the Europeans, who knew he who ruled Africa ruled the world. Two years prior to this in Belgium , the conference on Eugentics took place.
