The Boers lost their independence and the former Boer republics (the South African Republic or Transvaal and the Orange Free State) became British colonies, with the prospect of obtaining responsible government (self-government) as soon as possible. The question of black enfranchisement was not to be decided until after the introduction of self-government. The Boers were to be paid £3 000 000 in reconstruction aid. Rebels were to be disenfranchised for five years. Dutch was to be taught in schools where desired by the parents and allowed in the courtroom.
Prof. Fransjohan Pretorius will talk on this emotional moment of Boer surrender
