South Africa was British.

Not always, they had to fight wars for it with the Dutch.

Main article: First Boer War
The First Boer War (18801881), also known as the "Transvaal War," was a relatively brief conflict in which Boer settlers successfully resisted a British attempt to annex the Transvaal, and re-established an independent republic.`


Main article: Second Boer War
The Second Boer War (18991902), by contrast, was a lengthy war involving large numbers of troops from many British possessions, which ended with the conversion of the Boer republics into British colonies (with a promise of limited self-government). These colonies later formed part of the Union of South Africa.
