50 years after independence, Africa still suffering from colonial wounds

From AlJazeera:

Seventeen African nations gained their independence in 1960, but the dreams of the independence era were short-lived.

Africa states of independence tells the story of some of those countries – stories of mass exploitation, of the ecstasy of independence and of how – with liberation – a new, covert scramble for resources was born.

– Al Jazeera, September 2 2010
