by Pitiki Ntuli If I do not speak as an African, Act as an African; define the parameters around which I can speak I would be confessing to the sin of colluding with those who seek to gain hegemony over my soul. If I speak only as an African without acknowledging my other selves then I am condemning myself to the ghetto of thought from which I may not re-emerge. So I choose to speak not as the indigenous But as the endogenous African. Colonial discourse teaches us that we, Africans, were discovered in a state of ignorance and barbarism. Europe set out on a mission to civilise us. To this end, mission stations equipped with priests and nuns were established; together with them were colonial administrators. Colonialism became a project of invention. (Mudimbe). We were invented; that is, positioned, packaged, framed and fixed. The image we carried was not a complimentary one. Successive struggles for liberation were launched and in the 50's and 60's Africa attained its independence, with few exceptions and South Africa being one of them. The petty-bourgeoisie leaders of the new Africa inherited the colonial state and continued to rule without transforming it. Attempts at indigenisation of the state or its education systems were half hearted and consequently failed. The only evidence of indigenous practices was only in song, dress and dance. The content of the state and its educational institutions remained colonial. Cold War politics further prostituted the African state.

Africa Under Apartheid

5 pages. With the decline of agricultural price in the 1870’s and 1880’s that led to lower-class southern whites to join farmers throughout the country in populist political movements, political leaders sought to unite the racial lines in order to effect more votes from the black voters. This did not work and the populist revolt died away after 1896. This then refutes some of what society was attempting to resolve. Bibliography lists 3 sources. Filename: JGAafhis.rtf

12. Tswa
It is an indigenous Bantu language from the vast majority of all southern Bantu peoples. MajorBantu Languages Makhuwa, Shona, Lomwe, Tsonga, Chuabo, makonde.
People Profile The Tswa People Religion: Christianity, Traditional Animism Population: 1,060,000 (1996 estimate) Status: 50% Professed Christianity; 20-25% Evangelical Location: The greatest concentration of Tswa people is in the southern Mozambiquan province of Inhambane. Smaller concentrations live in portions of the provinces of Gaza, Maputo, Manica and Sofala. The Tswa people also live in eastern portions of the Republic of South Africa, and eastern and southern Zimbabwe. International borders were established long after the arrival of these people in this area of Africa. There are basically no significant concentrations of Tswa people living in Mozambique north of the Zambezi River, which more or less divides the country in two. The capital city of Maputo is now home to quite a few Tswa people as well, despite the major people group of the city being people of the Ronga group. Identity: The name of this people in their language is Vatswa. The singular form is Mutswa. They are often referred to, especially by outsiders, as Tswa, following the patterns of English grammar. The Tswa people are part of a larger language/people group called the Tsonga (Vatsonga). The Tsonga encompass three sub-groups: the Ronga, Tswa and Tsonga (Shangaan). These three groups are very similar in practically every respect. They originated from the same indigenous Bantu peoples who came down from the north to inhabit much of what is now called southern Mozambique and portions of several bordering countries.

Site last modified: January 20, 2003 Mozambique QUICK FACTS Area: total: 801,590 sq km
Capital: Maputo, 1,000,000+
Population: This former Portuguese colony is home to over twenty million people and to the largest unreached group in Africa— possibly the world! It has the largest concentration of unreached peoples in Africa south of the equator. It is also considered to be one of the poorest countries on the globe.
AIM missionaries in Mozambique are concentrating on ministering to the newly emerging churches in theological training, etc. There are a number of opportunities in various areas including TESL, general church work and various teaching positions.
Mozambique was a Portuguese colony for more than four hundred years before attaining independence in 1975. During those years the colonial government recognized only the Catholic Church resulting in persecution of those calling themselves "Protestant". With independence came the establishment of communism so the persecution extended to all recognized as Christians. Although the Marxist ideology of the government continued until the early 1990's, beginning in 1982, missionaries, who had been expelled at independence, were allowed to re-enter. The government recognized the need for the support of everyone possible, including the evangelical churches. Despite the fact that missionary work in the country was non-existent between 1975 and 1982, the evangelical church grew quite rapidly among the Lomwe living in Zambezi Province.

Speech by Deputy President Thabo Mbeki at the United Nations University
9 April 1998 "Of the Ethiopians there are diverse forms and kinds of men. Some there are toward the east that have neither nose nor nostrils, but the face all full. Others that have no upper lip, they are without tongues, and they speak by signs, and they have but a little hole to take their breath at, by the which they drink with an oaten straw ... In a part of Afrikke be people called Pteomphane, for their King they have a dog, at whose fancy they are governed ... And the people called Anthropomphagi which we call cannibals, live with human flesh. The Cinamolgi, their heads are almost like to heads of dogs... Blemmyis a people so called, they have no heads, but hide their mouth and their eyes in their breasts." (Cited in: "Africa: A Biography of the Continent": John Reader, Hamish Hamilton, London, 1997.) Happily, fifteen centuries later, Europe had a somewhat different view of the Africans. At the beginning of the 16th century, Leo Africanus, a Spaniard resident in Morocco, visited West Africa and wrote the following about the royal court in Timbuktu, Mali: The rich king of Timbuktu ... keeps a magnificent and well-furnished court ... Here are great store of doctors, judges, priests, and other learned men, that are bountifully maintained at the king's cost and charges. And hither are brought diverse manuscripts or written books out of Barbarie, which are sold for more money than any other merchandise.' (Reader, op cit.)

The mass media in America pay little attention to Africa unless there is a story that involves mass violence, as in Rwanda, mass starvation, as in Somalia, or epic political change, as in the transition to majority rule in South Africa, or the fall of Mobutu's Zaire. Even then, when events in Africa do capture American public attention, the reports are almost always brief, shallow, laden with moralistic interpretations and uninformed about the local area and its history. For most Americans, these glimpses of Africa become little more than invitations for projective fantasizing. This course seeks to give the student the foundations on which to build an understanding of Africa as it exists today. The approach will be multidisciplinary. While this is an anthropology course, the subject of this course is Africa, not the history of the anthropology of Africa. Theoretical and methodological issues will be considered only to the extent that they assist or hinder our understanding of Africa. We will start with an introduction to the geography and history of the continent and develop an appreciation of Africa's major regional differences. We will then consider several major cultural themes and patterns of kinship and social organization that characterize sub-Saharan Africa.
