NEO-COLONIAL TIES AND STRENGTHENED DEPENDENCY

NEO-COLONIAL TIES AND STRENGTHENED DEPENDENCY

Since Ghana became the first African country to gain independence in 1957 the vast majority of African countries witnessed their very own miracles in gaining independence from the early sixties. However, full African independence continues to elude the long awaited and promised sovereignty and autonomy. The dehumanizing acts of the colonizers took shape in the liberators running the now independent Africa. The decolonization of the African continent has been argued to be not as thorough as it should have been, which raises questions of the entrenchment of decolonization and independence.

The establishment of Neo-colonial ties between the former masters and their subjects has ensured the continued colonization of the African continent. This project seeks to exploit the gaps in literature in analyzing to what extent is Africa as a continent still colonized and to understand to what extent is Africa truly independent from the influence of former colonizers, also understand how entrenched is democratization and independence in the continent.

A qualitative methodology approach will guide the project to provide credible, substantial and quality work through the exploitation of both primary and secondary sources in literature. The study aims to address continental and regional structures of the causes of the regressive and dysfunctional African instabilities and disunity, to assist legislature in shaping understanding of common identity and unification with the decolonization of the mind and African literature.
