The wide fissure between Africa and the metropoles implies facing one bitter truth, Europe exploited Africa. However, many metropolitan bourgeois writers hold the reprimand view that colonialism had a good side that possibly outweighed the bad that it brought to Africa, their assertions in their entirety are biased and only suitable for a category of readers. In this book, Mwiza gives a concise deep understanding of Zambia’s search for stability and how the country has faced bitter blows of social, economic and political instability due to colonialism and how the post-independence epoch has been characterized by European ascendancy and deceit that has created stagnation in the African continent, the author also shows how there is a way forward for Zambia than dependence that binds the nation in the chains of ‘freedom’.
There is need to reshape systems of governance, structures of power and life as a whole in Zambia and many African countries so that Africans can decide their future and do away with prescribed existence.
