In April 2015, it will be exactly 50 years ago that Ché Guevara celebrated his happy arrival in Congo. In December it will be exactly 50 years ago that he sadly retreated. Jérôme Sebasoni crossed Ché Guevara on his guerrilla and followed him all the way to Cuba.

Illustrators Jeroen Janssen and Hilde Baele tell the life story of Jérôme Sebasoni, a Rwandan who escaped the first ethnic cleansing of the 1960s and decided to fight for his people and identity. He went from one guerrilla to another, from Kayibanda to Lumumba. From Mobutu to Kabila. Along the way, he joined Ché Guevara in his fight... He can tell it today in French, Swahili, Kinyarwanda, Kirundi and in Spanish.
