Mpala is the location of an early Catholic mission in the Belgian Congo. A military station was established at Mpala on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in May 1883. It was transferred to the White Fathers missionaries in 1885. At one time it was hoped that it would form the nucleus of a Christian kingdom in the heart of Africa. However, after a military expedition had to be sent to protect the mission from destruction by local warlords in 1892, civil control returned to the Belgian colonial authorities. The first seminary in the Congo was established at Mpala, and later the mission played an important role in providing practical education to the people of the region.

dbo:abstract
  • Mpala of Lubanda is een plaats in Congo-Kinshasa aan het Tanganyikameer. Ze is gesticht als militair station op 4 mei 1883 door kapitein Émile Storms. In juni kwamen de Witte Paters er een missiepost vestigen. In 1885 namen ze het gebied onder hun hoede, in de hoop dat het de kiem van een christelijk koninkrijk zou worden. Dit mislukte en in 1892 nam de Kongo-Vrijstaat het bewind over. (nl)
