THE BRITISH occupied the Cape to prevent its capture by the French in 1795. Dutch rule was restored in 1803, as a result of the Napoleonic Wars in Europe, Cape Colony became a permanent British possession in 1806. Although at first the Afrikaners accepted British administration, resentment quickly surfaced over British liberal policies, specifically n regard to the frontier and the freeing of slaves. Tensions between the Afrikaners and the authorities greatly increased after the British landed 4,000 British settlers in 1820. In 1833 slavery was prohibited in the British Empire, an action that directly threatened the Afrikaner's way of life. One of Cecil John Rhodes' dreams (and the dream of many other members of the British Empire) was for a "red line" on the map from the Cape to Cairo. (On geo-political maps, British dominions were always denoted in red or pink.) Rhodes had been instrumental in securing southern African states for the Empire. He and others felt the best way to "unify the possessions, facilitate governance, enable the military to move quickly to hot spots or conduct war, help settlement, and foster trade" would be to build the "Cape to Cairo Railway".
South Africa withdrew from the British Commonwealth in 1961 and became a republic after being censured by fellow members.
After being elected as the president of the ANC in Limpopo, and according to the party's constitution, the president automatically qualifies to enter the national elections to lead the country.
If by SA you mean South America, then Africa is bigger. If by SA you mean South Africa, then South Africa is in Africa, being one of over 50 countries in Africa, so obviously Africa is much bigger.

Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe with 7 degrees, two of them being Masters, is the most educated president in Africa and if not in the whole world. Perhaps Indian PM M. Singh may have a slight edge over president Mugabe on the global scene.

The scramble for Africa took place in the 19th century when South Africa was being colonized by European countries. The Europeans would go to war to try and gain the land, and when they won the natives had to keep moving (like a defence wall they were being pushed closer and closer to the center).
It concluded with the end of apartheid in April 1994, the first democratic elections being held in South Africa in that time and Mandela becoming the first black president in South Africa.
