 Congo Free State - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
Cecil Rhodes, then Prime Minister of the British Cape Colony (part of modern South Africa) was expanding from the south and threatening to occupy the southern Congo area in defiance of the Berlin Treaty and with the tacit connivance of London.
The slaving gangs of Zanzibar trader Tippu Tip had established a strong presence in the north and east of the country and the area to the east of it (modern Uganda), and had effectively established an independent state.
Tippu Tip's muskets were no match for Léopold's artillery and machine guns, however, and by early 1894 the war was over.

 Tippu Tip Biography | Encyclopedia of World Biography
It was during the course of his third expedition that he gained the nickname of Tippu Tip, an onomatopoeic imitation of his firearms, and befriended the British missionary and explorer David Livingstone.
In the meantime, however, Tippu Tip had returned to Zanzibar and had been approached by Sultan Bargash of Zanzibar as well as by an envoy of King Leopold II of Belgium for the purpose of enlisting his influence in support of their respective ambitions.
During 1883-1884 Tippu Tip seems to have been playing both ends of the field or to have been divided between his loyalty to the Sultan and his realization that European influence would probably prevail in the Congo.

Meanwhile, at Stanley Falls, Tippu Tip attempted to acquire carriers, but he believed that Stanley had broken his part of their agreement by leaving ammunition behind, and Barttelot came to Yambuya with only an indefinite promise that carriers would arrive in several weeks.
Barttelot had been shot in a dispute, Jameson was at Bangala dying of a fever, Troup had been invalided home, and Ward had gone back down the Congo a second time to telegraph the Relief Committee in London for further instructions (the Column had not heard from Stanley in over a year).
The original purpose of the Rear Column - to wait for the additional carriers from Tippu Tip - had not been accomplished, since without the ammunition supplied by the expedition, Tippu Tip had nothing with which to recruit.

By independent is meant that there were no credible threats, intoxicants or use of force by Whites to force or deceive the African into slave raiding or slave trading and that the raider himself was not enslaved to Whites at the time of slave raiding or "trading".

 'Just World News' by Helena Cobban: Empire and the discourse of "justice"
Back in the late 1800s, there was a mixed-race, Arab-African slave trader operating out of Zanzibar called Tippu Tip, whose slave-capturing activities deep in the African interior became notorious in liberal circles of the west.
Unfortunately, Tippu Tip also claimed dominion over large parts of Congo-- and Leopold's envoys had struck several mutually beneficial deals with him.
But there seem to be numerous worthwhile lessons that we can take from the story of Leopold and Tippu Tip as we look at the story that continues to unfold between the Bush administration and Bashar al-Asad today...
