I think France maybe was the worst by seeing Mali, Chad, Mauritania etc... The French ex-colonies are the worst in Africa. Dutch colonialism was also not bad, in South Africa they did populated the empty area and not only explored. And to finish the topic, Salazar was right and had a great vision of the future os decolonization of Africa, that man had an IQ was superior to his fascist homologues, he knew exaclty what would happen to Africa without Europeans.
You forgot to mention the German colonisers and how much they were loved in Namibia, especially by the Herrero people. The Italian army was so good in Libya that, being very modest, to this day public discussion of their role there is forbidden in Italy. Yes the Dutch populated the empty areas of South Africa, after they had emptied them. They were very nice in Indonesia too, as my Indonesian neigbour assured me.
P.S. Which of the Reichs is your username a homage to, or can we guess?
