How to use "Belgian congo" in context?
Belgian Congo was a Belgian colony in Africa from 1885 to 1960.
The colony was initially administered by the Belgium civil administration in the Congo based in Leopoldville, which assumed all the necessary functions of government for the colony.
In 1908 the Belgian government stripped personal power from the colonial governor, and from then on the Belgian Congo was an autonomous colony, with a Resident General as the supreme authority.
In 1921 responsibility for education was transferred from the colonial administration to the local Catholic clergy.
