2: Belgians in the Congo The Belgians in the Congo was an international conflict, which started in 1960 and ended in 1964.

On July 11, 1960, Katanga declared independence. Katanga was controlled by Moise Tshombe. Katanga was the richest place in the Congo so without the Katanga the Congo wouldn’t be anything.
