Pietermaritzburg - The AbaThembu clan in the Eastern Cape province, which former President Nelson Mandela is a part of, intends to recuse itself as part of South Africa and form its own independent state next year.
"There is also information that suggests that about 60% of the land in South Africa legitimately belongs to AbaThembu. Johannesburg and Durban are among the cities that are built on our land," said Majola.
I thought this news should be viewed by more people, not just from South Africa, but from an international point of view, since the whole South Africa could be destabilized if the country is divided.
The land which they would like to claim as an independent territory include a huge part of South Africa, including major cities like Johannesburg and Durban.

From what I understand S.A. was originally a bunch of Clans, Europeans came by and Colonized them. They created S.A., called themselves Afrikaners and implemented apartheid. Everything was great until the original peoples decided to change things. It took a while but they succeeded.
