Apartheid is a word created in south Africa whlch means separateness. It was a system of racial segregation and the people were segregated into 4 main groups “whites”, “blacks”,”Indians”, and “coloured”. This was enforced through legislation by the National Party (NP) south Africa ruling party from 1948 to 1994.
Dutch Afrikaans believed that they had a god given right, to the homelands of south Africa according to the bible they were reading and that black people were inferior.
Residential areas were segregated. From 1960 to 1983, 3.5 million non-white South Africans were removed from their homes, and forced into segregated neighbourhoods, in one of the largest mass removals in modern history. Non-white political representation was also abolished in 1970, and starting in that year black people were deprived of their citizenship.
The government segregated education, medical care, beaches, and other public services, and provided black people with services that were often inferior to those of white people.
Apartheid was economical motivated as they needed cheap labour to mine the goldmines. Apartheid sparked significant internal resistance and violence, trade embargo against South Africa. Since the 1950s, a series of popular uprisings and protests was met with the banning of opposition and imprisoning of anti-apartheid leaders. Along with the sanctions placed on South Africa by the international community, this made it increasingly difficult for the government to maintain the regime.
In the days of slavery, slaves required passes to travel away from their masters. In 1797 the Landdrost and Heemraden of Swellendam and Graaff-Reinet (the Dutch colonial governing authority) extended pass laws beyond slaves and ordained that all Khoikhoi (Hottentots) moving around the country for any purpose should carry passes.
Ordinance No. 49 of 1828 decreed that prospective black immigrants were to be granted passes for the sole purpose of seeking work. These passes were to be issued for Coloureds and Khoikhoi, but not for other Africans, but other Africans were still forced to carry passes.
Apartheid reforms in the 1980s failed to quell the mounting opposition, and in 1990 President Frederik Willem de Klerk began negotiations to end apartheid, culminating in multi-racial democratic elections in 1994, won by the African National Congress under Nelson Mandela.
De Klerk began the process of dismantling apartheid with the release of Mandela’s mentor and several other political prisoners in October 1989. Although the official abolition of apartheid occurred in 1991 with repeal of the last of the remaining apartheid laws, non whites were not allowed to vote until 1993 at the end of apartheid.
