South African Nationality Law
South Africa rewrote its nationality law since the end of Apartheid in 1994 and the establishment of majority rule in the country under the African National Congress. The 1995 South African Citizenship Act did away with the previous Apartheid-era 1949 and 1970 acts which had granted bantustan citizenship to the country's African majority and inferior levels of citizenship to the country's Asian and coloured minorities.
