This chapter discusses Sekhukhune's conflict with Clarke. Taking military action would bring on a clash with Clarke, who was supporting the usurper and threatening to re-ignite the war against the Transvaal administration. In his message to Clarke, Sekhukhune stated that the English Government had gone the wrong way to work with him. He also said he would not trouble the people at Fort Weeber, but that the ground was his.

Keywords:   Sekhukhune, military action, war, Clarke, Transvaal, Fort Weeber
