Nyasaland's history was marked by the massive loss of African communal lands in the early colonial period. In January 1915, the Reverend John Chimbelwe staged an attempt at rebellion in protest at discrimination against Africans. Colonial authorities reassessed some of their policies. From the 1930s, a growing class of educated African elite, many educated in the United Kingdom, became increasingly politically active and vocal about gaining independence. They established associations and, after 1944, the Nyasaland African Congress. (NAC).
When Nyasaland was forced in 1953 into a Federation with Southern and Northern Rhodesia, there was a rise in civic unrest, as this was deeply unpopular among the people of the territory. The failure of the NAC to prevent this caused its collapse. Not long afterward, a younger and more militant generation revived the NAC. Ultimately, they invited Hastings Banda to return to the country and lead it to independence as Malawi in 1964.
Britain (Useless father): FATHER, I RESPECT YOU AND ALL, BUT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, GIB ME INDEPENDENCE AND LIBERATE THE TEA PLANTATION WORKERS!
Federation of Rhodesia (Cool bro): We unified for a short while and it helped me grow, and he is much more prosperous than me!
