How did colonization affect the governments of modern African nations?

Thank you for helping

  • social studies -

    The European colonizers split up traditional ethnic groups, demoralized the natural leaders, and didn't allow the native people to govern themselves. When African nations became independent, they had no experience or knowledge about how to govern. They had witnessed the Europeans take what they wanted with no regard for the people of the region.
