Description

Mamdani refers to direct rule as ‘centralised despotism’ and indirect rule as a mediated, ‘decentralised despotism’.

Mamdani refers to direct rule as ‘centralised despotism’ and indirect rule as a mediated, ‘decentralised despotism’. Direct rule was racially discriminatory towards the natives who were regarded as uncivilised. Indirect rule, on the other hand, was also discriminatory at the tribal level, because tribalism was instrumentally used if not created to facilitate indirect rule (2018: xiii).

Apartheid, Mamdani shows, was actually the generic form of the colonial state in Africa. The Theory of Decentralized Despotism. 109. The Native Authority and the Free Peasantry. 138. Peasant Movements. Through case studies of rural (Uganda) and urban (South Africa) resistance movements, we learn how these institutional features fragment resistance and how states tend to play off reform in one sector against repression in the other. Reforming a power that institutionally enforces tension between town and country, and between ethnicities, is the key challenge for anyone interested in democratic reform in Africa.

In his book Citizen and Subject: Contemporary Africa and the Legacy of Colonialism, Mamdani claims the two types of rule were each sides of the same coin. He explains that colonialists did not exclusively use one system of rule over another. Instead, European powers divided regions along urban-rural lines and instituted separate systems of government in each area.

Drawing on the analysis of Mahmood Mamdani’s Citizen and Subject: Contemporary Africa and the Legacy of Late Colonialism (1996), Ntsebeza highlights the ways in which South Africa’s colonial and apartheid states constructed their administration in the rural areas by building the chiefs into icons of a nebulous tradition but also by granting them the very real power to allocate. The first several chapters of the book look at the historical reconstruction of chieftainship in the period up to the creation of Bantu (or Tribal) Authorities in the 1950s.

In these circumstances, Citizen and Subject informs us, rural and urban popular resistance to decentralized despotism inevitably took an ethnic form-"tribal" political organization, as Mamdani calls it after dispensing with the quotation marks early in the book, hoping that his readers will.
