Abstract
The spread of colonial empire was introduced in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries by the American Revolutionary war and the Latin American wars of independence. Colonialism is the policy of acquiring and maintaining colonies, especially for exploitation. Colonialism therefore will be examined in Alex La Guma's A Walk in the Night and R.K Narayan's A Horse and Two Goats. They both showcase the ailments of colonialism in their respective works. Apartheid in South Africa has perpetrated on the lives of South Africans and perhaps death of a character in La Guma's A Walk in the Night, due to racism. For clearer understanding of this study, it is pertinent that the concept race and oppression be defined. race is any major biological division of mankind, distinguished by colour and texture of hair, colour of skin and eye stature. Oppression- is the act of oppressing, the imposition of unreasonable burdens, either in taxes, services, excessing rigorous government severity. Racial oppression the severity or misery imposed on a particular people with the same biological features by another group or specie of mankind. Therefore, colonialism will be examine in South Africa's apartheid regime, how South Africans were treated and La Guma tells how a character (Willieboy) his killed unlawfully in A Walk in the Night. Also how Narayan showcases instances of colonialism in. A Horse and Two Goats. Really, colonialism has caused Africans so many problems, which some of these generate till date. The means to stop this phenomenon occurrence is for Africans to live in unity.
