What percent of the African continent was once controlled by colonial power?

The scramble for Africa known as Race of Africa or Partition of Africa was the invasion, occupation and annexation of African territory by European Powers during the New Imperialism Period between 1881 and 1914. The Berlin Conference in 1884 which regulated European Colonization and trade in Africa, is cited as a convenient starting point. The last 59 years of the 19th century saw the transition from "informal imperialism" by military influence and economic dominance to the direct rule of colonies. Europeans still controlled only 10% of the African Continent. The other colonial powers Germany, Portugal, Spain, Belgium and Italy used varied administrative systems to facilitate control and economic exploitation.
