Transkei

The Transkei was an independent country within the borders of the Republic of SA on the south eastern side.  The name means “the area beyond the Kei River”.  It became an independent state in 1976, but economically was still dependant on the Republic of SA. Together with the Ciskei it was meant as a homeland for the Xhosa-speaking people. In 1994 it was re-integrated into the new democratic Republic of South Africa.

From 1981 until 1994, the Transkei issued its own stamps, but before 1981 and after 1994, South African stamps were used in the area still referred to as the Transkei.
