Zulu Warriors

John Laband

Yale University Press

In the Swazi oral testimony, King Sobhuza I spoke of a dream that people of strange species entered his country and carried weapons of destruction. This dream was interpreted as a warning from the ancestors never to fight the white people. With this in mind, King Mswati II made a deal with the Ohrigstad Boers in July 1846. In return for their aid against the amaZulu threatening his kingdom, he granted them large parcels of land.

Keywords:   Swazi, King Sobhuza I, white people, King Mswati II, Ohrigstad Boers, amaZulu
