|5th May 2003||Why was only Cetshwayo captured?|
By Gary Laliberty
Why was the King and not some if not all of his senior commanders captured?
|5th May 2003||John Young|
Many of the king's important commanders "came in" to use the contemporary parlance - in other words surrendered. I actually have a photograph of a mass surrender taken some time in August/September 1879.
A number of important izinduna obviously signed the 'surrender document' on 1st September, 1879. Many of those iziinduna took part in the running of KwaZulu during King Cetshwayo's imprisonment/exile.

Thank you, for your information. Your last part about the izinduna running the country, was something that I have read about.
May I be so bold, to ask you...and if it's possible on your part. For a 'copy' of that photograph via e-mail to me? And again thank you for your information.
