Answer Text:
Some communities were keen on defending their age-old and ancient political, social and economic institutions and viewed the arrival of the Whiteman with suspicion. Their leaders did not want to lose their power, wealth and sources of
prestige. Others were militarily prepared for the Europeans. E.g the Mandinka, Nandi, Ndebele and Ethiopia. Some resisters were centralized states enjoying immense unity making it easy to mobilize people for a war. Such included the Ethiopian Empire.
