In 1880 the British attacked the Boer republics (also of Western culture) and were soundly defeated at Bronkhorstspruit, Laing’s Nek, Schuins Hoogte, and Majuba.
In 1899 they tried again suffering three devastating defeats by the Boer Republics at the battles of Stormberg, Magersfontein and Colenso. Even with a half million men invasion force (their most expensive war) the British still could not succeed despite scorched earth and concentration camps (murdering a third of the Boer population, counting women and children).
In 1902, having failed on the battlefield in a war they could no longer afford, the English succeeded in bribing two generals (Botha, Smuts) who became subsequent prime ministers under English occupation, to sign a peace treaty.
In 1910 the English forced the Republics into a union with the colonies and black regions.
In 1913 the Boers rebelled. Smuts used the forces to kill his own including General de la Rey, and Jopie Fourie, an officer who served under him in the war against the English, whom he had shot.
In 1914 the pro-English government invades German South West Africa (now Namibia), a sympathizer of the Boers.
In 1917 Russia succumbs to a Bolshevik coup d’état, financed out of New York.
In 1922 the Union government used the army against Boers striking over their jobs being given to foreigners, killing 200.
In 1948 the English stoolie government ended. The English occupation lasted less than 40 years.
The national government started developing (at enormous taxpayer expense) the black regions to make them economically viable to become independent of the forced Union again, a policy called separate development, or “apartheid” by the media.
Societies who were illiterate, neolithic, subsistence farmers.
Ciskei and Bophuthatswana had their own governments. Transkei and Vendaland were almost self-governing. Kwazulu had their own government (Inkatha) but preferred to remain in the union, although they strongly resisted inclusion in the “new South Africa” under black communism (ANC).
After WWII, the Soviets instigated “independence” from European colonizers in many African countries turning them communist.
In 1964 Mandela was tried in open court (Rivonia trial), and was well represented by international lawyers. Mandela and others (ANC/MK) were KGB trained and equipped communist terrorists charged with 221 acts of violent sabotage. Any democratic country would have convicted them !!
In 1966 Verwoerd was assassinated (third attempt), a coup d’état by the Broederbond (Brotherhood) and thus the last Boer prime minister. The “architect of apartheid” was in fact a caring sociology/social work professor. Succeeded by the wino, Justice minister, Vorster.
In 1967 every copy of the Hoek report to parliament on international monetary powers was ruthlessly hunted down and destroyed, and prof Hoek sworn to secrecy.
In 1973 the US lost Vietnam to the commies.
In 1974 Portugal succumbed to a communist military coup, euphemistically called the the “carnation revolution”, making their (bordering) colonies, Mozambique and Angola, available to the Soviet Union, and forcing the Portuguese there to flee their homes for their lives (much like Congo, Uganda, Kenya, Zimbabwe (later), etc.).
In 1976 Kissinger and Vorster betray Rhodesia, a sibling country bravely fighting for it’s life against the communists, by closing the border.
In 1976 the Soviets invade through the former Portuguese territories.
In 1977 Carter imposes sanctions on South Africa, making oil and weapons unavailable. Even forcing Europeans to disinvest. SASOL became the world’s largest oil from coal producer
In spite of piling in millions of tonnes of armour into Angola, the Soviets were unable to break through to South West Africa (Namibia). There were also fronts in Rhodesia and Mozambique as well as vicious KGB instigated internal terrorism.
In 1985 Mandela is hauled out of jail and groomed for government in England.
In 1986 the de Kock commission recommendations are implemented handing the creation of the national currency (Rand) over to private banks.
In 1987 the Soviet forces are stopped at Cuito Cuanavale (one of many battles) losing 4,785 killed, 94 MBTs, 9 MiGs, and hundreds of combat vehicles. source Chester Crocker
In 1988 the drunk foreign minister (Pik Botha), at the Cairo negotiations about mutual (Soviet/SAfrican) withdrawal from Angola, gave away South West Africa (now communist Namibia, which was not even on the table) in the pub. Months later the Soviet union collapsed, which explains the rush.
In 1994 Mandela has a staged release from prison with a prepared government.
Boer, Zulu, Tswana, and Xhosa (Ciskei) resistance (almost civil war) to this take-over was severely dealt with by the de Klerk transition government. Only by treason in the ranks of Africa’s most powerful military, was something like this possible.
Note that neither wars against the English empire (1880/1, 1899-1902) nor Soviet union (1976-1988) were lost on the battlefield, but by treason. In both cases, while citizens and soldiers were fighting for survival, CEOs, generals, and politicians were betraying the country.
There are no examples of successful communist governments on the planet. In fact communism cost 70 million lives in the Soviet union, 100 million in China, and in South Africa the murder rate of food producing farmers is 228 per 100,000. The murder rate of the general public is 36 per 100,000 using government statistics, compared to 1 per 100,000 in Europe and 5 in the US.

Regarding the current disowning of farmers
The 1913 Land Act, an English, not Boer, survey show the areas settled by black (Bantu) people.
In comparison (2nd image), ample provision was later made for land claims, but the communist government continues to take land.
There can be no claims to farmland never settled nor infrastructure never built.
In Zimbabwe and Mozambique, they stole intact, high-yielding, farms, yet failed to feed themselves.
