In 1998, when American Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright dubbed the war in the Congo the African World War One, that is the invasion of the Democratic Republic of the Congo by the armies of Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi, Mumengi boldly represented the congolese resistance, in military fatigues (cfr. Jason K. Stearns, Dancing in the glory of Monsters, The Collapse of the Congo and the great war of Africa. In his book Guerre des Grands Lacs, La résistance congolaise, the professor and international functionary at UNESCO Joseph Poto Poto noted : “When peace is restored, the Congolese will most certainly remember this tragic episode of history. One name among many others will force that memory, that of Didier Mumengi” (page 49).
