How does tribalism affect Africa?
In respect to this, what are the effects of tribalism?
Tribalism and social bonding help to keep individuals committed to the group, even when personal relations may fray. That keeps individuals from wandering off or joining other groups. It also leads to bullying when a tribal member is unwilling to conform to the politics of the collective.
Additionally, how is African nationalism different to tribalism? After creating the tribes and giving each whatever they cry out for, there is no longer an sense of a cohesive nation. Nationalism is loyalty to your nation as a whole, while tribalism is loyalty to a smaller group within the nation, excluding others in the nation.
