The RSA Was Not a True Republic.

The Republic of South Africa declared on May 31 1961 was only ever a republic in name alone thus a nominal republic as it maintained the British Westminster system & turned the post of Governor-General into a ceremonial State President.

[ The Constitution of the Republic differed remarkably little from the Union Constitution. The object of the exercise was to bring about a single political loyalty for all White South Africans, not a new system. Nationalists hoped that the English speakers would abandon their dual loyalty once they could no longer look to Britain as a fatherland. ] From: Page 494. The Afrikaners: biography of a people. By Hermann Buhr Giliomee.

The notable Boer Patriot Robert van Tonder left the National Party in 1961 over that party's betrayal of the Boer Republics [ & noted that the RSA was a threat to Boer identity ] & started advocating for the restoration of the Boer Republics as the only measure to ensure the survival of the Boer people / nation.
