All of the countries making up southern Africa have gone through many changes throughout recent history. They have gone through many struggles of being controlled as colonies of other countries, controlled by ruthless dictators, and have had corruption throughout their government. Some of the countries had to resort to violence for their independence while others were simply let go . The struggles for their own proper forms of government have been very hard, and some still struggle today to be properly represented .
