Elsewhere I read that Krause think this portrait is that of one T.E.Nkogo?

Why should it not be Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, the current president of Equatorial Guinea who assumed power in 1979?

Thanks Gerhard.

The best part of this forum is that we can ask them  :)

yes, we can see a link with Belgium, one of whose languages is Dutch.

The obverse of this piece has been taken from the Kinshasa International Fair 1972 token produced by the Brussels Mint for the Bank of Zaire and was modelled by Roger Duterme.
