Sudan celebrates its Independence

The Sudanese people are remembering today that 62 years ago they got their independence. Before that day and since 1898, Sudan was governed by Britain and Egypt.

But it has to be admitted that the actual rule was in the hands of the British. Another fact should be acknowledge that the British colonization was not as harsh as it was in other Arab countries and by other colonialists, like the French in Algeria. That was why the British rulers were quick to agree to the Sudanese call for independence and why the British are on good terms with their past “colonized subjects”.
