  • Author’s note: I referred to these South African tribesmen as “Kaffirs” in earlier columns that I wrote about this incident. That was the term I found used in old newspaper accounts. “Kaffir” is now regarded as a derogatory term and I referred to these black South Africans as “tribesmen” in this article.
