Source: "Chart 307 is cast for the 31 May 1910 ... for 12:00 noon when 'the Governor General and his first ministers will take the oath and generally assume office with solemn ceremonial.'" Campion, "The Book of World Horoscopes," p. 342.

     "The 1984 constitution failed to create the conditions for stable political development, and the white government began to move towards an accommodation with the Africans. The key symbolic moment in the move towards reconciliation took place at 4.16 p.m. on 11 February 1990 when African national Congress leader Nelson Mandela was released from Victor Vestor prison at Capetown.
     "After protracted negotiations a new multi-racial constitution was agreed and signed on the night of 17-18 November 1993. The new constitution came into effect at 00.00 hrs. 27 April 1994.... This was far more than a mere legal moment. The flag changing ceremonies were accompanied by celebrations and fireworks, and the headlines in South Africa greeted the birth of freedom.
     "The first multi-racial parliament met on the morning of Monday 9 May 1994. Nelson Mandela was elected the first black president at 12.15 p.m. 9 May 1994, and was formally inaugurated at 11.19.59 BST on 10 May 1994, in Pretoria. This represents the final de facto, de jure and ceremonial creation of the new African ruled South African ruled South Africa ..." Campion, "The Book of World Horoscopes," p. 345-346.
