Let. General Kebede Gebre .... (Commander-in-Chief of the UN Forces in the Congo from 1960 - 1964.)

"Congo" was in a serious political crisis in the 1960s. Following the official request from the UN, Ethiopia played enormous role in stabilizing Congo in 1960-63.

General Kebede Gebre, the then commander of Ethiopian Peace Keeping Forces in Korea was nominated to be commander chief of UN mandated Peace Keeping Forces in Congo drowned from 'over 30 countries'.
