The end of 18th.C marked the beginning of new political African direction. In 1957, the formal Gold Coast got her flag independence, many African freedom fighters including Sekou Toure, Patrice Lumumba, Julius Nyerere, Mandela were present in Gold cost. However, Gold Coast became the political mecca of Africa because that's where other African leaders must receive their anointing freedom.
It should be noted however that Nkrumah Kwame, the man that champion the day said the independence of Ghana cannot be completed without the liberty of other African nations. Nkrumah therefore changed the name Gold Coast to Ghana because when you acquire new characters you have to change your name so that the old things can be relegated into the museum of history.
Many years after the independence, Africa found itself in a state of animated condition.
Today, the tragedy of Africa cannot be completed without discuss the role of corruption in Africa which lead many Africans into voluntary slavery.
As a result of this, Africa did not believe in herself. It produces what it does not consume and consumes what it does not produce.
Africa have the graduate of engineering enmasse yet, it is the Chinese that dominate the construction of roads in Africa.
It is a pitiable dismal that thousands of young men and women from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Niger, Senegal have drawn in the Mediterranean as the seek to be enslaved in the USA and Europe.
Africa is in a sorry state.
