Confédération des associations tribales du Katanga or CONAKAT, was one of the three main political parties in the Belgian Congo and was led by the pro-Western regionalist Moïse Tsjombe and his interior minister Godefroid Munongo.

History[edit]

The party was started in the 1950s by Moïse Tshombe and Godefroid Munongo. The party believed that the mineral riches of Katanga should be exclusively for the "authentic" ethnic Katangese.[1]
