This one is about the precolonial African powers in the Congo – Zanzibar’s representative Tippu Tip, Msiri of Katanga, and a few others (but mainly these two). We talk about their rise in the context of growing European power, and their eventual fall to Belgium – although as you’ll see it wasn’t exactly Belgium, but … Continue reading "Scramble for Africa 8: Belgium Steals Congo"

    Scramble for Africa 6: Sudan – the fall of Gordon and the rise and fall of the Mahdi

    2:06:46

    The British imperialists take Sudan. First, they send Gordon, acting in the name of the Khedive of Egypt. That doesn’t go so well. The next expedition culminates in the brutal battle of Omdurman in 1898, the quintessential colonial military mismatch and the demonstration for the colonial use of the machine gun. We tell Gordon’s story … Continue reading "Scramble for Africa 6: Sudan – the fall of Gordon and the rise and fall of the Mahdi"
