Sierra Leone is a former english colony( with spanish name) while Liberia is a US creation,a country
created specially for american slaves.

Togo is a former german and then french colony,Benin (former Dahomey) is the birth place of the voodoo,called voodun by the natives.

Rwanda is the country where the infamous genocide took place, while Burundi is the other neighbor.

Lesotho and Swaziland are small kingdoms (Bantoustans) created by the english in the heart of South African,to divide natives tribes .

Cameroon was also a German colony and then a French colony. BTW, Cameroon comes from the Portuguese words "Rio dos Camaroes" meaning "River of Shrimp, referring to the shrimp found off of the coast.

Namibia was ruled by South Africa until 1990.

Equatorial Guinea is the only Spanish-speaking nation in Sub-Saharan Africa
