When did colonization begin and how did it happen?
How was this colony governed? Who was in control in the actual colony?
Sudan was a condominium of the United Kingdom and Egypt from 1899 to 1955, but the condominium actually ensured full British control over Sudan. It was a combination of indirect rule and direct rule, Sudan was controlled by a system of governors during the time of occupation by Britain and Egypt.
What were some of the major exports of Sudan?
What was life like for the native people of Sudan?
Were there any resistance movements?
There was little resistance to the condominium. Breaches of the peace usually took the form of intertribal warfare, banditry, or revolts of short duration.
How and when did the colony gain independence?
Sudan wanted for Egypt to officially separate from Sudan. The British finally withdrew in 1954, and on January 1, 1956, the Egyptian and British governments signed a treaty granting Sudan independence.
