Abstract:An evaluation and interim report. The purpose of this article is to examine what opportunities for development are in fact being offered, to what extent the 'national units' can expect eventually to become self-governing, and whether the Bantu authorities system, even when fully developed, can be said to be an effective substitute for direct representation in Parliament: Evaluation of the Bantu Authorities System; The Constitution of Bantu Authorities; Powers, Functions and Duties of Chiefs and Authorities; Authorities established by 20th March, 1959 - Conclusion: It seems that; in general, in the Cape, the Africans who have been longest in touch with European systems of government are the least ready to adopt the Bantu authorities System.
