Description DM2011053130:SAED:SOCIAL:PERSONALITY:OCT 1959 – Proud and self-conscious, the khaki-clad Mafokeng Guards pave the way for the Chief down a dusty street of the village of Phokeng. In their wake too are local dignitaries, children and a few stray dogs. Rustenburg Coronation – It lasted three days. Fifteen thousand people came. Jazz bands, brass bands, the lot. Even the Minister of Bantu Administration looked in at the village of Phokeng for the coronation of Chief Ëdward Patric Lebone Molotlegi of the Bafokeng tribe. Joburg’s nitelife celebrities, professional men, teachers, factory workers, businessmen and the usual “guests” who turn up to everything going. (Photograph by Peter Magubane ©BAHA)
