Took part in the rebellion of Langalibalele1873
Langalibalele Rebellion: Trouble had been brewing for some time with the Amahlubi under Langalibalele. The Amahlubi had been chased by Chaka out of Zululand and had settled in the Utrecht area where they remained until attacked by Panda in 1849 whereupon the moved to the upper part of the Klip River, as approved by Lieutenant-Governor West. This moved caused yet another problem for the Governor because the land on which he had agreed the Amahlubi could settle was in fact owned by Boer farmers, so Langalibalele was removed, unwillingly, to the upper waters of the Bushman River in the general area of Cathkin Peak and Giants Castle. Many of the men of the Amahlubi went to work in the diamond mines often returning with guns; it was against the law for a native to possess a firearm. Langalibalele was ordered to give up all the arms in his possession but after many requests to do so he had not complied. A force of 200 regulars, 300 volunteers and about 6000 natives with two field pieces moved into the Amahlubi location on 29th October 1873. The Langalibalele rebellion, as it became known, has been well chronicled in other publications suffice to say here that he was eventually captured by the Cape Mounted Rifles and handed over to Captain Allison, Natal Carbineers, on 13th December 1873. After a trial he was banished but allowed to return to Natal in 1886. He died in 1889.
