calf. We do not know which bull has impregnated it. For that reason we do not know what it will bear.)

That is how the matter ended on that occasion. Chiefs in the Western Transvaal were no more enthusiastic on Bantu Authorities and Chief Moilina and Mabi in particular wer so uncompromising that the government was forced to depose them in the end. Even a Chief Didimane Pilane when he became the Chief Executive Officer of the Tswana Territorial Authority expressed ideas which aroused concern from Pretoria.

But the heaviest artillery trained on Bantu Authorities in the Transvaal, apart from Zeerust, came from Sekhukhneland where the ruling chief Morwamorshe was also deposed and deported together with his chief advisor Godfrey Sekhukhune. A government stooge was appointed in Morwamotshe's place, who was prepared to accept what the people had rejected. He payed the penalty of all traitors and the heroine Madinoge and about 15 (?) others were sentenced to death, later commuted to 15 years (?).

But even greater resistance came from Zululand under the direct leadership of King Cyprian and his cousin Chief Gatsha Butelezi, and it is common knowledge that this was the very last area to work the system. I do not know whether Verwoerd ever realised the way in which he was rebuffed when he visited Zulualnd to introduce the system.
