Social, Cultural and Religious Factors in Changing African Societies

  • D. M. Ntusi


The old saying that Africa always has something new to show comes to the mind of the author as he seeks to make a contribution to a discussion of accelerated development in Southern Africa. This discussion, in which he has been asked to participate, concerns how best to speed up all the planned programmes, projects, schemes and procedures for development that are found in so many forms in the trends and processes of culture change and in the modernisation of life of African societies in this region of Africa and elsewhere. As an African the author feels affected in a profound way, because he is at the same time the subject under discussion and a participant in that discussion.
