The United Republic of the Kongolese People is an outgrowth of Holden Roberto's attempts through the FNLA (National Liberation Front of Angola) to overthrow the MPLA communist government of Angola. Following the collapse of the first MPLA government in Luanda, Roberto would, after having failed to capture the Luanda, and failed to achieve a reunification with UNITA, declare the independance of the Kongolese people in Africa. The nation's attempts to assert its claims have brought it into conflict with the People’s Republic of Angola, the Republic of Angola, Cabinda, and Zaire.
