Description DM2008112116:SAED:POLITICS:PERSONALITIES:DEC 1976 - Transkei Independence - Transkei: Despite some fears there were no scenes of violence at Umtata. The only gunfire came from the 101-gun salute by the South African big guns. You would expect people to go wild with excitement, let down their hair when they become free. Strangely this was not the case when Transkei celebrated its independence. Granted there was pomp and pageantry, liveried horsemen, colourfully dress tribewomen and the inevitable chanting of the mbongis, but the whole affair lacked that essential tang. In fact it was less exciting and less eventful than a jazz festival at Orlando Stadium. (Photograph by Chris Van der Merwe BAHA)
