Post-Colonial Era Africa seems like it will be an interesting place... if not entirely post-Colonial
bear in mind apartheid only got introduced in its pure form in 1948 and only because the constituency boundaries favoured the rural voter, the United Party OTL still won more actual votes. It remains possible to avoid formal apartheid in SA and I still think the UK can absent an Apartheid Afrikaner government in SA prevent it quite easily in Rhodesia especially if Portugal has somewhat reassessed its own approach to colonial populations, which I think was suggested. Another thing India wont like the continuation of anti Indian discrimination in SA, so if Italy is seen as a big supporter of that it does not win any points.Don't forget, Rhodesia and South Africa's White populations are already significantly larger due to Polish exiles and the realization with the successful Libyan integration (compared to more disastrous decolonizations) that there is a wisdom in opening your borders to settlers.
Also can we appreciate the fact Afghanistan is probably going to be the most peaceful and functional muslim country in world ov this TL?
I am honestly surprised it managed to last so long honestly. I was expecting it would have started cracking immediately after WW2 honestly

Hussein was caught attempting to flee to Syria, dragged into the streets of Mosul and shot dead. His corpse was then hung upside down from a lamppost to be pelted by rotting tomatoes by Kurdish residents – an action that Mussolini called ‘As amusing as it is righteous’ in a telephone call with Barzani.
IIRC, in OTL Afganistan was actually pretty stable until Zahir Shah's overthrow in '73. Hopefully it will last longer here. What are Afghanistan's foreign relations like.Also can we appreciate the fact Afghanistan is probably going to be the most peaceful and functional muslim country in world of this TL?
