Ever heard of the “Dinuzulu’s Volunteers”?

It is sad that history is always shaped to fit the agenda of the day’s leaders. Many times new regime leaders have also deliberately destroyed books, artifacts and other memorabilia of the predecessor which might spark sympathy.

As strange as it may seem through our segregation past, South Africa does have a great history where white, black, coloured and Indians have in fact worked together which somewhat questions the true intensity of especially racism we are made to belief exists today.

The white miners’ strike of 1922 where whites stood up against class differences following in the footsteps of the contemporary Russian Revolution, ended in Jan Smuts physically bombing the Springs City Hall by airplanes where the miners had their last stand after a week of violent unrest opposing the anti-socialist British colonial government. This is never talked about and where it did pop up the reason for this strike was given as white miners who didn’t want black managers. Or some trash false reason like that.

The current impression is that whites, and especially the Afrikaans speaking group, are racists and that they have always hated black people. This is totally nonsense.

We all in South Africa once, and in many cases still have, one common enemy we all seem to have forgotten and strangely our ANC government never emphasizes this on political rallies and in our school curriculum. The evil British Crown.

Unlike with the British, during the 1800’s the Zulu nation once had a great relationship of understanding with the Boers of the past. They allowed each other their freedom and space, and cooperated with each other when such need arrived.

Every black person is reminded how the Boers killed around 3000 Zulus at "Bloedrivier" when the whites "invaded" Zululand, but that is not the true full version. The part where Dingane was actually an illegitimate leader of the Zulu people is conveniently left out and also that part where the legitimate King Mpande kaSenzangakhona asked those very same "killer" Boers to assist him to defeat Dingane restoring the dignity of the Zulu Kingdom.

This great relationship between the Boers and the Zulu nation continued under the rule of King Dinuzulu kaCetshwayo too.

Zululand had been broken up into 13 smaller territories by the British after the Anglo-Zulu War (when Britain invaded Zululand), and Cetshwayo, and subsequently Dinuzulu, administered one of them.

The British later realized the futility of breaking up Zululand into the territories and restored Cetshwayo as paramount leader of the territories. However, they left one of Cetshwayo’s sons who was pro British, Usibepu (Zibhebhu), alone with his lands intact. On 22 July 1883, inspired by the British, Usibepu attacked Cetshwayo’s new kraal in Ulundi, wounding the king and causing him to flee.

To contest his succession to the throne of the Zulu Kingdom, Dinuzulu first appealed to the British, but had an obvious no response as the actual instigators of the attack. He then offered rewards of land to Boer farmers of the Vryheid and Utrecht districts, to come and fight on his side and restore the Zulu Kingdom.

In 1884 a group of Boer farmers from the districts of Utrecht and Vryheid undertook to help restore order, in return for land for the formation of an independent republic with access to the sea. Led by General Lucas Johannes Meijer, they formed Dinuzulu’s Volunteers and after several clashes with Zibhebhu, defeated him at the Battle of Ghost Mountain (also known as the Battle of Tshaneni) on 5 June 1884.

The Nieuwe Republiek, established in northern Natal on land awarded to Boers by Dinuzulu, was recognized by Germany and Portugal. It was later incorporated on its request by the ZAR because of financial problems, after the British annexed the coastal planes from the Thuhela river (Tugela) north wards in order to prevent the Boers from building a harbour.

After a considerable dispute in a Natal arbitration court, Britain eventually recognized the New Republic, but reduced in size after annexation of the coastal planes by Britain and deprived of its claims to St Lucia for a harbour. The Niewe Republiek was incorporated on its own request with the Zuid Afrikaanse Republiek in 1888. Stability in the Zulu kingdom continued until the British annexed the Zuid Afrikaanse Republiek in 1899 when all land in South Africa were illegally invaded by the British.

One doesn’t find this piece of our history in any of our school textbooks and chances are extremely rare that it ever will. For the new government and its capitalist, mostly Zionist, allies this history must never be spoken about and the Afrikaans speaking white people have conveniently been labelled as the "architechts" of "Apartheid" while the British Monarchy has always been the culprit of world segregation issues as in this case of Dinuzulu’s Volunteers.

This was just something of interest I wanted to share and maybe it would help to reposition your thoughts.
