Background: President Joseph mobutu has explained to his Government Ministers how two former Ministers and an army General planned to kill him.
Ministers were shown stocks of dynamite with which the plotters intended to blow up the president's motorcade. This film also shows the conspirators' hideout in a cave behind the waterfall at Djele-Binza.
Information Minister Dominique Sokombi has said the conspirators were former Foreign Minister Justin Bomboko, former Finance Minister Victor Nendaka, and General Alphonse-Devos Banala. Their alternative plan was to kidnap the President and force him to resign before eliminating him.
