Farrakhan makes accusation of Lumumba conspiracy theory

Posted: Updated:
WLBT/WDBD -

We've all heard the buzz after Kenneth Stokes claimed that Mayor Chokwe Lumumba was murdered, but he isn't the only one who thinks this is possible.

Minister Louis Farrakhan spoke in front of a large group at the Mosque Maryam in Chicago on March 2. 

The focus of his speech was on the death of Jackson's late mayor. According to Farrakhan, Lumumba probably didn't die of natural causes.

Farrakhan made many outspoken remarks on the death of Lumumba. He said, "A black man being a mayor trying to do right by all the people, is not a mayor that those people want."

He also offered to pay for a forensic specialist to make sure that Lumumba died "under the right circumstances".

Farrakhan is a black religious and social leader. He has been both praised and widely criticized for his controversial political views and outspokenness. He has been criticized for remarks that have been perceived as antisemitic, anti-white and prejudiced against homosexuals.

Farrakhan served as the minister of major mosques in Boston and Harlem, and was appointed by the longtime NOI leader, Elijah Mohammed, as the National Representative of the Nation of Islam.
