Storyline

Government forces in a racist African country have captured Kitara, the leader of the revolutionary forces, and will torture him to death in their effort to find the gold bullion he has hidden. To rescue Kitara and secure the gold, Jim plans to manipulate the security official interrogating him. What better way to manipulate a racist than to turn him into what he least wants to be and turn his own forces against him? Written by David Foss

The IMF goes to a German colony at Africa in an episode called "Kitara". Their mission involves freeing a revolutionary leader from a custody of a white and racist military leader. Their mission allows the leader to be provided with a new perspective in terms of race by the IMF making him and convincing him as black. While the way the IMF's method of accomplishing their mission makes it somewhat implausible and outrageous,we get to see an unforgettable episode.
