The focus area of this article is to highlight the work of the inheritance of the British monarchy in African traditional leaders before colonization and after colonization. Traditional leaders have been playing an important role in their communities and they are still playing a bigger role even though municipal councilor are in power. This article is generated mainly by using desktop research meaning the collection of data was secondary from academic journals, books and government legislation. The main focus of African countries Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Uganda, South Africa and Zimbabwe. The countries history was used mainly because the countries experienced colonization and all of the countries have traditional leaders working with municipalities in their jurisdiction. In my findings I have demonstrated that Traditional Leaders are able to work with government in the same areas. Ghana is identified as a classic example of a country that looks at the injustice of the past to change the future. The contribution of the study to the body of knowledge is show that traditional leaders are able to work with municipal councilors and serve their communities even though they are not resourced and undermined by the governments. Traditional leaders and governments need to work together.
