Which british colony in Africa was the first to receive its independence?

Although some of Britain's possessions in Africa gained independence before other nations' (such as South Africa, Egypt and Sudan), the UK also owned the last colony in Africa (Southern Rhodesia). Not all their colonies gained independence before other nations'. South Africa gained independence so early because they had a stable government controlled by whites. Egypt gained independence so early because there was a huge nationalist movement (which was aided and strengthened by Germany). Sudan gained independence because its sovereignty was shared by both Egypt and the UK. Egypt wanted Sudan to become independent, so they pretty much abandoned their shared colony. The UK needed Egypt to also take part in Sudanese affairs, so they had trouble controlling Sudan without them, which forced the UK to let Sudan become independent.
