UN Orders South Africa Hand Over Protectorate of Nimibia
The U.N. Security Council voted to give South Africa until May 30th 1975 to begin transferring power in Namibia to the Namibians. Ten days before the deadline, South African Premier Balthazar Vorster rejected the UN demand, saying that South Africa would not negotiate the transfer of power with the South West African People's Organization (the major Black nationalist group).
