ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Ethiopia's and Liberia's dispute with South Africa concerning the interpretation and application of the Mandate for South West Africa. The Territory of South West Africa, a German colony prior to the First World War, was entrusted to South Africa in 1920 as a Mandate under the League of Nations Covenant. The Mandate System, of which South West Africa is the one vestigial remnant, comprised certain colonies and territories which, as a consequence of the war, had ceased to be under the sovereignty of the defeated states. The Mandate System was devised as a new international institution. The heart and essence of the system is embodied in Article 22 of the Covenant. The same Article provides that the tutelage of such peoples should be entrusted to advanced nations who by reason of their resources, their experience or their geographical position can best undertake this responsibility, and who are willing to accept it, and that this tutelage should be exercised by them as Mandatories on behalf of the League.
