Abstract:After the breakdown of apartheid in South Africa, a new government will have to deal with the complex reality of ten different bantustan 'States', each with its own administration, military and police. Once the bantustans were described as 'dumping grounds'. In this paper the author shows that they are much more than that. They have turned into scenes of protest and resistance to apartheid - an unintended result of the apartheid policy to vest political power in conservative and corrupt bantustan leaderships. The bantustan leaders today are needed both by Pretoria and the ANC. A postapartheid government may need the bantustan State machinery as an instrument of order and reform. This paper discusses the implications of this scenario.
