This move is in line with the government's internal control strategy of 'divide and rule'.

The republic of South Africa grants independence to Venda and Gazankulu. These Bantustans were never given international recognition by the international community. However, states like Israel and Taiwan gave them some measure of acknowledgment, falling short of full diplomatic recognition. The African National Congress objected to the creation of these Bantustans and also refrained from crediting them as legitimate.
