Moshoeshoe 3 –
In this, the final book in a series of three, an aged Moshoeshoe begins to lose control of his headstrong sons and chiefs. Towards the end of his life, Moshesh’s health started crumbling and the confidence that had always served to fortify him in times of crisis, drifted away. Disaster followed disaster and the seasons passed in a shroud of gloom. Moshoeshoe was, however, in his eighties, which was old for those times, and he had had a tough life. When he heard the British Queen had accepted his request for protection and made his people subjects of the British throne he finally let go. His death, only months later, marked the end of a remarkable life and the reign of one of Africa’s legendary leaders.
