The United Transkeian Territories General Council was established in
1930 and was succeeded by a territorial authority in 1956.
Transkei was the first homeland to achieve internal self-government in 1963 and followed by full "independence" in 1976.
This independence was not recognized by any country in the world.
It ceased to exist as a political entity on 27. April 1994 and has been incorporated
into South Africa.
