As the Dutch settled into South Africa, the South African people or the Boers were relaxed and performing every day tasks as they thought nothing of the Dutch. The Boers started to migrate to find more land when they came across the Zulu. The Zulu's leader named Shaka, was very powerful and had a strong army, but the Boers wouldn't back down. Soon the Dutch discovered this disagreement and decided to take over this land of the Zulu's too.
Stage 4: Recovery
Stage 1: Complaining
Now the Dutch were starting to take almost full control of their land and the Boers had no say in what the Dutch were doing. Since the Dutch were putting limitations on Boers every day life, they decided to try and move away from their home land. Though the South Africans did not like moving away from home, they decided it was better then having rights and rules forced on them.
After some of the Boers left to find new land, some of them stayed home trying to regain their territory. Peaceful protests started to spark will large groups of Boers marching down the streets. Soon the government started to ban organizations like the AWC and the PAC which supported the peaceful protesting.
Though the protests started peaceful, they soon turned violent. Innocent Boers were shot by police. A total of 69 Boers were killed during the protest. Nelson Mandela, a revolutionary leader, was arrested by police for peacefully and non-violent protesting. Most of the violence was conducted by the police
Now that the revolution has ended, F. W. de Klerk demanded Nelson Mandela o be set free from jail. Soon after, Mandela would run for president. Under the new constitution, all non-whites could vote. Sadly, Mandela resigned in 1997 due to the complaints to the government about not addressing the AIDS and HIV epidemic.
