Mali
   has the capital   
Bamako
Bamako was noted as a centre for Islamic studies in the Mali empire of medieval times, but had declined to the size of a village by the time of French colonization in 1880. Regrowth of the city was stimulated by the opening of the railway to Dakar in 1904 and by its designation as the capital of French Sudan in 1905. When the country became independent in 1960, Bamako remained the capital.
