Mr Guzana, if we can start very broadly with your views on your early career and what happened to Transkei over the past thirty or forty years. KG: Well let me point out straight away, that I was not born in the Transkei, but in Keiskammahoek, in 1916. I came to the Transkei in 1945 having taught at the Langa High School, Cape Town and before then at Lovedale. From Langa I came to the Ndamase Secondary School, then St Johns College Umtata. Whilst there I did law and served articles locally, qualifying in 1956, and started practising as an attorney. It was whilst practising as an attorney that I took an interest in politics, largely egged on by friends and the Paramount Chief of Western Tembuland, and I joined the ranks of those ""liars who speak as if they are saying the truth"" and became a member of the Legislative Assembly in the Transkei.
