Kaiser Matanzima: 15 years since his death

After the South African Parliament had passed the Transkei Constitution Act which replaced the existing territorial authority with a self-governing legislative assembly (though with limited law-making powers), Chief Kaiser Matanzima (June 15, 1915 to June 15, 2003) was elected by the Transkei Legislative Assembly during its first session as Chief Minister on December 6, 1963. The assembly was made up of forty-five elected members and sixty-four ex-officio chiefs who in terms of the Bantu Authorities Act of 1951 were employees of the South African government. Matanzima was elected mostly on the support of these non-elected chiefs. He later appointed his cabinet.(SA History Online) Below are images of Kaiser Matanzima available for licensing.
