European colonists never stop hiding their dark and evil past. However, one of their notorious leaders known as the "Butcher King" was so cruel that even other white slavemasters ' shame on him '.
The most ironic thing is that Congo was named as " Congo Free States" in his days. However, the only freedom Conglese got was the 'freedom' of being slaughtered like chicken.
It is estimated that more than 10 million Congo people were killed under his rule.

Despite being one of the richest countries in Europe, much of Belgium's wealth was plundered through exploitating mother Africa, especially Congo.
Under Leopold's brutal rule, millions of Congolese were mutilated, killed or dead from disease during his rule. He ran the Congo using black people as his running dogs. Failure to meet rubber collection quotas was punishable by death. 
The running dogs were required to provide the hand of their victims as proof when they had shot and killed someone. The rubber quotas were in part paid off in chopped-off hands and enslaved blacks were forced to hold their body parts,  see below:

There are no exact official bumbers on how many black people were killed.
Congo finally gained independence in 1960. But the colonial era set the stage for the civil war and the dictatorship that followed for many years.
Congo's first prime minister, also a great African patriot, Patrice Lumumba, was murdered and the nation fell in hands of western-backed dictator Mobuto. 
In April 2019, Belgium finally bowed down and apologized for the kidnapping, segregation, deportation and forced adoption of thousands of children born to biracial couples during its colonial rule of Burundi, Congo and Rwanda. It was the first time Belgium publicly recognized responsibility.
