The African Federation was prompted by the great shift in energy technology.  In the mountains of central Africa, engineers created the first production strike zone by using Barium Titanate cells to collect energy directly from lightning.  Lightning strikes occur more frequently in central Africa than in any other place on Earth.  As the Islamic Caliphate spread across north Africa, countries in central and southern Africa signed the Treaty of Rhodesia.  United under the black and yellow “Banner of the Lightning Bolt,” the new federation of African states stopped the Islamic advance at the Ubangi River.  As of 2085, the so-called “Treaty of Rhodesia” formally created the African Federation that included Gabon, Congo-Brazzaville, Congo-Kinshasa, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Angola, Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, and Madagascar.  The name of the treaty derived from the man who was instrumental in forming the alliance.  This man, Majuba Ka Linfield, whose DNA derived from Cecil John Rhodes and the Zulu general, Mzilikazi, of the Khumalo clan, was thought to symbolize an historic alliance.
