South Africa and the Bahamas established diplomatic
relations on 28 July 1994. South Africa's non-resident High Commissioner, Ms T
Luthuli-Gcabashe, presented her credentials in Nassau on 7 April 1999. Bilateral
relations reverted to the South African High Commission in Kingston, Jamaica.
High Commissioner T H Chiliza presented his credentials to the Governor General
of the Commonwealth of Bahamas on 14 June 2001.
The Bahamas played a prominent
role in the South African liberation struggle, i.e. the adoption of the Nassau
Understanding and the establishment of the Eminent Persons Group during the Commonwealth
Heads of Government meeting held in 1985 in the Bahamas. Bahamian interlocutors
in general reveal an incisive knowledge about South Africa, especially, with respect
to South Africa's pivotal role within the international community and our actions
advancing the agenda of the developing world.
