Roles of the missionaries in the European colonization of Africa include;

  • They set back information on Africa to their mother countries.
  • They encouraged African rulers to sign treaties e.g Lewanika.
  • They created rapport/mutual trust with the local who then welcomed the colonizers who were like missionaries.
  • They asked protection from their home government.
  • Their mission stations were used as initial operational bases for the colonizers as well as proof of evidence occupation.
