Sao Tome Demands Compensation from Portugal for Colonial Damage

Sao Tome

Sao Tome announced its plan to ask Portugal for money because of the problems caused by colonialism.

Last week, Portugal’s leader said his country was responsible for bad things during slavery and colonial times. He suggested they should give money to make up for it.

Portugal’s old ways in Africa, like in Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and Mozambique, caused a lot of hurt with violence and taking things away. Sao Tome now wants payment for the bad things colonialism did.

This is part of a big change where African countries are speaking up against their past rulers. In 2021, Germany said sorry to Namibia and paid them a lot of money for hurting them. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, people want Belgium to say sorry and pay for what they did during colonial times. This shows that things are changing, and African nations want to be heard and helped for the bad things done in the past.
