Generations of white autocracy in South Africa have created mass migrations, tribal regrouping, inter-marriage and other complexities among black South Africans. Add the fact that the black 'homelands', including Kwazulu, are either fictions, or eroded white inventions, and what is really likely to cause explosions, as both Bophuthatswana and Ciskei have already shown, is this belief that omelettes can be unscrambled by legislation. Apartness hasn't worked, on any scale.
The Rev Morton's claim that F. W. de Klerk has been 'successfully wooed by Nelson Mandela' to reject the 'self-governing nations' solution, is to misunderstand the facts. Mr Mandela failed to get his concept of a properly unitary South Africa accepted, while Mr de Klerk has continued to fund the discredited 'separate states' or alleged 'homelands', a system long denounced by Mr Mandela.
