Listen to the Dec. 24, 2016 edition of the Pan-African Journal: Worldwide Radio Broadcast hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. The program features our regular PANW report with dispatches on the recent political unrest in the Democratic Republic of Congo where opposition forces have staged protests demanding the resignation of President Joseph Kabila; a Libyan airline was hijacked to Malta on Dec. 23 by supporters of the Al-Fateh Revolution of September 1, 1969 which was led by the martyred leader Col. Muammar Gaddafi; a Tunisian man was shot dead by Italian police who say he was responsible for a lorry attack in Berlin earlier in the week; and President-elect Donald Trump has stated that his administration will continue the nuclear arms race started by the United States during World War II. In the second hour we will listen to the third installment of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Massey Lectures delivered over the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in December 1967, just four months prior to his assassination in Memphis on April 4, 1968. Finally we will review the origins of political instability in the Democratic Republic of Congo when the first elected Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba was overthrown and assassinated at the aegis of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in 1960-61.
