Postcolonial theology in Africa traces its roots to pre-colonial thinking and times—where the real reference point of theology in Africa resides. It is a dogged attempt to retrace and to recover the beginnings of the “song” that was interrupted by colonialism, a refusal to let an interruption become a beginning, a refusal to let colonialism continue to define the present and the future of its victims. Postcolonial theology is that which intends to critique the foundations of colonial thought and theology. When theology in Africa proceeds merely based on the mimicry of colonial-era European and American theologies, it is giving up on the importance of its roots and its origins in the early centuries of Christianity. Postcolonial theology in Africa intends to dethrone, not entrench, coloniality. It intends to bury all the foundational pretenses of colonialism on the African continent—so that colonialism is seen for what it is, namely a violent interruption.
