Sir Theophilus Shepstone became Administrator of the Transvaal Territory in April 1877. This chapter discusses Shepstone's policies and his efforts to assert British power. During this period, Shepstone was convinced that Sekhukhune formed an alliance with King Cetshwayo of the amaZulu. Rumors then began to spread in the early spring of 1877 about the black conspiracy to shake off the domination of the white men and expel them from the country.

Keywords:   Sir Theophilus Shepstone, Transvaal, African states, Sekhukhune, King Cetshwayo, amaZulu, black conspiracy
