Missionary Teachers as Agents of Colonialism in Uganda

by Ado K. Tiberondwa

The role of Christian missionaries as agents of colonialism has been the subject of much study in the history of modern Africa. The author, currently teaching at the School of Education, Makerere University, portrays missionaries as persons who contributed to the destruction of indigenous African values, using education and Christianity as their main tools. He states that missionaries trained chiefs, teachers, clerics and other persons who they used to sow the seeds and nurture the seedlings of political, economic and cultural imperialism in Uganda and other African countries. The book brings together the fruits of the author's research and his practical experience.
