Erosion of African Cultural and Family Values by Colonial Experience
The Role of Transformational Leadership as a Tool for Reconstruction
This paper reviews the role of colonialism in the erosion of African cultural family values on the continent and the role of transformative leadership as a tool of their reconstruction. This paper argues that colonial domination led to the erosion of many positive African cultural and family values such as sense of solidarity and brotherhood and led to the adoption of western values such as of individualism and self-seeking which are partly responsible or the many ills afflict the African society today. The paper proposes that transformative leadership can be an effective tool for review, reconstruction and enhancement of the positive African cultural and family values.
