We need a revolution in both south Africa and Nigeria because the two countries were exploited and colonized by the so-called great Britain.
As recently as 14 years ago, south Africa, a nation million people, was accurately described as a country where race was the sole determinant of power. Regardless of occupation, education, or family background, white south Africans enjoyed legal rights and privileges that were denied to all people of color. Ever since 1948, when it received its independence from great Britain, south Africa had maintained this rigid segregationist policy, known as Apartheid.
During the 1980s, south Africa felt increasing worldwide disapproval and economic pressure to change. At the same time, Black south Africans became more and more vocal about their second-class citizenship. They engaged in many forms of nonviolent boycotts, labor strikes, political demonstrations, and occasional acts of sabotage.
In a dramatic turn of events in 1990, south Africa prime minister F. W. due Clerk legalized 60 banned Black Revolutionary organizations and freed Nelson Mandela, the leader of the long-outlawed African national Congress (ANC), after 27 years of imprisonment. The following year, de Clerk and Black leaders signed a National peace Accord, pledging themselves to the establishment of a multiparty democracy.
In 1994, south Africa held its first universal election. Nelson Mandela’s ANC received 62 percent of the vote, giving him a five-year term as president. Mandela and his political party then faced a difficult challenge: making the transition from a liberation movement dedicated to fighting for revolution to a governing party that needed to make political compromises. Moreover, an end to the racist policy of apartheid-while applauded around the world-was not in itself a solution to all of south Africa’s problems. At best, one-fifth of the country’s Blacks could compete in the nation’s economy, while the rest formed a huge underclass.
Unfortunately, some of the controversial issues facing the citizens of south Africa today are very familiar to the citizens of the federal republic of Nigeria and other citizens of the African countries.
