Hello

 Sir Arthur Conan Doyle not only write novels of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. He was as Rudyard Kipling and flag bearer of Imperial England. And much more. In his book "The war in Africa" (in internet archive). He  tell us: 

"It was about the time when Oliver Cromwell was at his zenith--in 1652,
to be pedantically accurate--that the Dutch made their first lodgment at
the Cape of Good Hope. The Portuguese had been there before them, but,
repelled by the evil weather, and lured forward by rumours of gold, they
had passed the true seat of empire, and had voyaged farther, to settle
along the eastern coast. But the Dutchmen at the Cape prospered and grew
stronger in that robust climate. They did not penetrate far inland, for
they were few in number, and all they wanted was to be found close at
hand."
" The diseases which
follow the white man had in Africa, as in America and Australia, been
fatal to the natives, and an epidemic of smallpox cleared the country
for the new-comers".
 This means that Áfricans worker are not extranges in south áfrica as the Afrikaneer argue frecuently because the white don't arrive to an empty country. As mister Arthur, better Sir, tell us further the whites in South Africa finish beeing a cultural fusion of germanic europeans and some french people that take an despotic power over the african africaner.

That's all
