The British administered northern and southern Sudan as separate colonies; requiring a passport to travel between them and banning the slave trade.
The British “closed door” laws expelled northern Arab merchants from the south and discouraged Islam plus Arabic customs. They provided money to support Christian Missionary schools and social services in the south but developed roads only in the north.
