"Sitshitshili kaMnqandi, who killed the officers Barton and Poole at the battle of Hlobane, but was later murdered by rebels for being a government collaborator after the Rebellion of 1906."


"A Zulu Chief named Sitshitshili seeing that the horse was on its last legs, trotted along with several other Zulus behind the British officers for 7 miles until the horse collapsed. Poole was killed first, and Barton surrounded. Because Cetshwayo had again ordered his men to capture a few British officers for him to interrogate at Ulundi, Tshitshili approached Barton, put down his rifle and spear, and motioned for Barton to surrender. Barton did not understand. He raised his pistol, but it misfired three times, and another Zulu Shot Barton. Because it would not do for another man claim first spear, Sitshitshili then dashed up and speared Barton. Fourteen months later Sitshitshili unerringly led wood to the spot where Poole and Barton had died. Sitshitshili amazed Wood by recalling that Barton had a few small pockmarks on his face. Wood insisted that Barton had no pockmarks and took out a photo of Barton to prove his point. Sitshitshili was right.
(p 123) Originally 'From Midshipman to Field Marshall' by Field-Marshall Sir Evelyn Wood."[left]


Relating to Hlobane.
the Zulu induna Sitshitshili kaMnqandi, saw one man ‘as he approached, turning his carbine and shooting himself.
