History

African Independence

After the Second World War, most of the african colonies became independent from the west-Europese countries they belonged to. Although, South Africa was already independent since 1912, giving it a head start to develop their economy, government, infrastructure and culture. The countries of Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and Swaziland became fully independent from the United Kingdom and Germany in the periods between 1960 and 1990. South Africa and Zimbabwe were the first to form the Republic of Southern Africa in late 1966, to build up a greater economy than they were in at that time. Soon, other nations followed. Botswana joined on November 1st 1968, Lesotho and Swaziland on February 12th 1969, Namibia on June 4th 1990 and Mozambique on September 24th 2012.
