CRWS Mini-Grant Recipient Hilary Lynd Uncovers Important History from South Africa's Transition to Democracy


During the course of my dissertation research, funded in part by a mini-grant from ISSI's Center for Right-Wing Studies in 2018, I stumbled upon an important untold story of South Africa’s transition to democracy. On the eve of the country’s first democratic elections in 1994, black and white right-wing formations were planning to boycott the elections. Had they done so, the cost in human lives would have been tremendous. The Zulu nationalist Inkatha Freedom Party was convinced to participate in elections due to the last-minute transfer of 2.8 million hectares of land to the Zulu King. Many have long suspected that such a deal took place, but my research has provided the first comprehensive account: names, dates, documents, linkages between Zulu politics and the Pretoria-based white minority government. A short version of this research appeared in the South African Mail & Guardian in August 2019.
