David Livingstone Initiated Exploitation Of Africa

His Two African Porters Naively Handed Over His Report Of African Resources To The Queen

Uganda Today: The two African men Chuma and Susi who unknowingly but dutifully handed over Central Africa to England.

In his third journey David Livingstone employed two young men James Chuma and Susi Abdullar as his porters.

The day he died at Chitambo village in Zambia in May 01, 1873, the two young men could not lose their loyalty but successfully protected the imperialist missionary’s belongings and made sure that they got back to Scotland without a blemish.

The most important item they knew he loved most was his ‘Holy Bible‘ that he used to spend sleepless nights reading.

Little did they realise that David Livingstone never carried any Bible to Africa but the beloved “Bible” that they always saw him get fond of was his note book in which he wrote all the accurate details on the wealth of Africa.

When the porters successfully managed to get the missionary’s Bible back to Europe, they were happy to be summoned by the Queen to personally visit Her Majesty the Queen to inform her on how secure Livingstone’s Bible was.

Livingstone recorded his accomplishments modestly but effectively in his Missionary Travels and Researches in South Africa (1857), which quickly sold more than 70,000 copies and took its place in publishing history as well as in that of exploration and missionary endeavour. Honours flowed in upon him. His increased income meant that he was now able to provide adequately for his family, which had lived in near poverty since returning to Britain. He was also able to make himself independent of the London Missionary Society. After the completion of his book, Livingstone spent six months speaking all over the British Isles. In his Senate House address at Cambridge on December 4, 1857, he foresaw that he would be unable to complete his work in Africa, and he called on young university men to take up the task that he had begun. The publication of Dr. Livingstone’s Cambridge Lectures (1858) roused almost as much interest as his book, and out of his Cambridge visit came the Universities’ Mission to Central Africa in 1860, on which Livingstone set high hopes during his second expedition to Africa.
