Between 1953 and 1957, there was conflict around Bantu Affairs (BA) and various other issues in the Bergville area, [Natal, now KwaZulu-Natal]. As a result, four people were banished. One of them was Chief Vuna Miya, who was first deposed in 1949 after being Chief for seven years, and then banished in September 1954 to “Chloe Native Trust Farm No. 943, Pietersburg District, [Northern]Transvaal, [now Polokwane, Limpopo Province].”
