Malan; Daniel François Malan; born May 22, 1874 near Riebeeck West, Cape Colony (now in Western Cape); died February 7, 1959, Stellenbosch; statesman and politician who formed South Africa's first exclusively Afrikaner government and instituted the policy of apartheid; educated at Victoria College, Stellenbosch, and at University of Utrecht, Netherlands (doctorate in divinity 1905); entered ministry of the Dutch Reformed Church in the Cape; left the pulpit in 1915 to edit Die Burger, a Cape Town newspaper that supported the National Party, founded the previous year; entered Parliament in 1918; as minister of the interior (from 1924) he instituted laws establishing a South African nationality and flag and recognizing Afrikaans as an official language of the Union, replacing Dutch; with the National Party merged with the South African Party in 1934, Malan left the government and founded the Purified National Party; in 1948 the Re-united National Party, in alliance with the smaller Afrikaner Party, appealed to Afrikaner and British racial sentiments and won a narrow majority in the House of Assembly, enabling Malan, as Prime Minister, to form the first exclusively Afrikaner government of South Africa; from then until his retirement in late 1954 his administration was preoccupied with establishing absolute apartheid, with white (particularly Afrikaner) rule for all time; the government's attempt to remove Coloured (mixed race) people from the common voting rolls of Cape Province in 1951 was declared invalid by the courts in 1952; his successors continued to implement the apartheid policies begun in Malan's administration)
