Wondering why Katanga has a Brithenig word for *Prime Minister* (it being a native state and all). And why Mugabe? --Sikulu 03:47, 8 February 2006 (PST)

Prime minister.

The Katangan goverment is modelled after the Cambrian one. Mugabe is a reference to Robert Mugabe. --Quentin 08:12, 8 February 2006 (PST)

Shouldn't Mugabe be the *prime minister* of Rhodesia (or something like that)? --Sikulu 08:14, 8 February 2006 (PST)

money

just a note, On IB, decimalisation is quite rare (and normaly require sort good explanation)--Marc Pasquin 15:40, 8 February 2006 (PST)

Flag

Question to Quentin: what is the status of the flag to the right? Is it a discarded version? Should I delete it? —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 00:41, 30 March 2006 (PST)

No, if I haven't said already, it's a ensign. --Quentin 14:04, 28 May 2006 (PDT)
I might make this flag of Kasai. --Quentin 04:33, 1 August 2006 (PDT)

Pushback

I'm pushing back dates to accomodate for GWII. --Quentin 14:04, 28 May 2006 (PDT)

I have removed the caption that the country was contested between Ethiopia and China alwas as in fact Ethiopia was very far from Katanga and was always separated by other states, including French colonies. The only time when it got close was GWII, when Ethiopia attempted to establish its influence over the whole continent. As for Mugabe, indeed he would be more related to Rhodesia than Katanga - unless, of course, it is a very different Mugabe, but then probably it would be wise to think off a different surname so it wouldn't get mixed.

Changed ot Moise Tshombe and fitting accordingly. --Quentin 10:13, 29 May 2006 (PDT)

Ok. Abdul-aziz 14:13, 29 May 2006 (PDT)

Moise Tchombe

Moise Tchombe was chosen by the Chinese to be regional leader in 1945. He remains active in katangan politics as of today, being prime minister since the early 1980's. Believing he is *here's* Moïse Kapenda Tchombe (1919-1969) wonder if this shouldn't be actulized afterall he should be now 93 years old!--Pedromoderno 17:26, 20 November 2012 (PST)
