Abstract:An investigation of the influence of returning migrants on the emergence of African political organizations in Nyasaland should be profitable, but it is not so often realized that most of the major African political leaders in Nyasaland, particularly during the inter-war period, were local residents with little or no experience of conditions outside their homeland. The Native Associations started as early as 1912. Because of a long start in missionary education modern nationalist-type movements followed quickly after the initial traditionalist resistance. 'New men' channelled African political activity through independent African churches up to 1915. Discussed here are the beginnings of a parallel secular response which became the major avenue for political agitation during the inter-war years. The emergence of the NAC is described. Ref.
