    Nimekuwa nikijiuliza swali hili kwa muda mrefu. Msukumo ukiwa:
    1. kwa nini Chancellor Bismark kunako 1884 alipowaita wakoloni wenziye wagawane Africa yeye alichukuwa Tanganyika na Namibia tu wakati kama mwenyeji angeweza kuchukua sehemu yeyeto ile atakayo?
    2. Kwa nini pamoja na rasilmali zote tulizonazo bado tunaitwa masikini. Je hatuwezi kujithaminisha kwa haya tulonayo? Mthalan kusema thamani ya Serengeti ni $ 500trillioni?
    3. Kwa nini mataifa makubwa yanamsifia JK wakati yanjua kabisa kuwa anashindwa kuendesha nchi?

    [FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]1884-1885 - Berlin West African Conference carves Africa into spheres of control

    [FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]In the second half of the nineteenth century, after more than four centuries of contact, the European powers finally laid claim to virtually all of Africa. Parts of the continent had been "explored," but now representatives of European governments and rulers arrived to create or expand African spheres of influence for their patrons. Competition was intense. Spheres of influence began to crowd each other. It was time for negotiation, and in late 1884 a conference was convened in Berlin to sort things out. This conference laid the groundwork for the now familiar politico-geographical map of Africa.

    [FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]In November 1884, the imperial chancellor and architect of the German Empire, Otto von Bismarck, convened a conference of 14 states (including the United States) to settle the political partitioning of Africa. [/FONT][FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Bismarck[/FONT][FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif] wanted not only to expand German spheres of influence in Africa but also to play off Germany's colonial rivals against one another to the Germans' advantage. Of these fourteen nations, France, Germany, Great Britain, and Portugal were the major players in the conference, controlling most of colonial Africa at the time.

    [FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]The Berlin Conference was Africa's undoing in more ways than one. The colonial powers superimposed their domains on the African Continent. By the time Africa regained its independence after the late 1950s, the realm had acquired a legacy of political fragmentation that could neither be eliminated nor made to operate satisfactorily. The African politico-geographical map is thus a permanent liability that resulted from the three months of ignorant, greedy acquisitiveness during a period when Europe's search for minerals and markets had become insatiable.

    [FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]The French dominated most of West Africa, and the British East and Southern Africa. The Belgians acquired the vast territory that became The Congo. The Germans held four colonies, one in each of the realm's regions. The Portuguese held a small colony in West Africa and two large ones in Southern Africa.
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]After colonial rule was firmly established in Africa, the only change in possessions came after World War I. Germany's four colonies were placed under the League of Nations, which established a mandate system for other colonizers to administer the territories.
    [/FONT]
    [/FONT]

    [FONT=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]The Congo Free State, conceived as a "neutral" zone to be run by an international association in the interest of bringing science, civilization, and Christianity to the indigenes, received the Berlin Conference's blessings. Belgium's King Leopold II (far left) soon took control, reaping fabulous personal profits through the sale of land and development rights. Scandalously little was reinvested in schools like the one shown here.
