Abstract
This paper analyses the political prejudices in postcolonial African societies, specifically focusing on the issue of despotism and corruption in Ghana and Nigeria after independence, as in most African countries where moral decay is prevalent. The analysis follows a clear and logical structure, typical of a post-colonial African novel, with a clear progression of socio-political changes. An assessment of the political systems is present in both novels where the two writers discredit certain leaders and their policies that do not honour the essence of “independence.” The criticism is aimed at those who were involved in diminishing values during and after the Nkrumah administration. The findings indicate that the early elites of post-independent Africa were unsuccessful in implementing an efficient system to fulfil the requirements of the continent. The issue is that current African politics tends to perpetuate colonial governance. To address this, it is recommended that politicians act with greater transparency in the execution of their duties and step aside when the duty is done.
