The ripping apart of German East Africa after World War One. At the Treaty of Versailles' discussions in 1919, it was agreed that the British could take over Tanganyika, Belgium could occupy Ruandi and Urundi, while Portugal obtained the Kionga Triangle. This is how the partition of G.E.A. took place with the greatest portion of the cake going to the British. Thus the scramble for Africa continued.
