Sehkukhune –

Greatest of the Pedi Kings

This book tells the story of Sekhukhune, of whom The London Times wrote on 30 August 1882: “… We hear this morning from Durban of the death of one of the bravest of our former enemies, the Chief Sekhukhune. He, with his son and fourteen followers, have been killed… The news carries us some years back to the time when the name of Sekhukhune was a name of dread, first to the Dutch and then to the English Colonists of the Transvaal and Natal… It was, indeed to a great extent the danger caused by the neighbourhood of this formidable chief that led to the annexation of the Transvaal by England.”
