@gashwin....remember it's Africans who would sell fellow Africans to arabs..no Arab ventured into the interior of eastern africa...to make matters worse the Chiefs would actually facilitate the trade

There's a website I'd come across that explained succinctly how the French brutalized their west African colonies in the lead up to independence, including burning down what they'd put up to prevent the new post-independence gov't's from inheriting anything, to surcharge have others for any such dev't undertaken during the colonial era as well as the financial shenanigans that France engaged in to sabotage them all the way up to the sabotage and eventual collapse of the CFA Franc, etc etc.

Nakumbuka tukibonga hii kitu klist. To the point where France, until today still demands a 'colonisation fee' for the 'developments' that they brought to the host country.

@wu tang...recall that for Patrice he was captured put under house arrest then toured and killed and who assisted..a fellow african...Mobutu Sseseko...
True, most African leaders at independence were European/ American puppets and those that tried to have an alternative view were killed or destabilized e.g Sekou Toure of Guinea, Lumumba, Egypt's Nasser etc.

The French had a more 'personal' attachment to their colonies unlike other colonial powers...why do I say this? They applied a method called assimilation...they made Africans their people; gave them citizenship in France; allowed them to go for further studies in France; they could wear suits; get jobs here and abroad; to the French they couldn't understand why after all that Africans wanted self rule that's why when they knew that de colonization was inevitable they did what anyone who is subjective does....destroyed every infrastructure and I mean zote and left...but the French educated Africans envied their colonial masters and you know what a petty bourgeois was born an d France dangled the power and money carrots

lumumba was killed because of a speech he gave in front of belgium king on independence day. while the president, kasavubu, was all thankful and apologetic to the king, lumumba reminded them that independence was not granted but was fought for. he was also against cessation of mineral rich katanga. for this CIA and belgium agreed he had to go. mobutu was just an opportunistic army general
