Balkanisation

In defiance of  Kwame Nkrumah (quoting Kobina Sekyi) I have come to the conclusion that the only long-term solution for Africa is the balkanisation of that continent.  Only when each ethnicity has achieved the self-respect of self-determination will they be able to enter into voluntary co-operation with their neighbours.  The current lines on the map are imperial conceptions of who the Africans are, and impose impossible demands and limitations on the aspirations of the ordinary people.
