"Jabez Molife and Simeon Khambule, both of whom had served during the Anglo-Zulu War in 1879, came from a community of amakholwa (Christians) and had a close relationship with Samuelson. A group of 200 amakholwa scouts from Driefontein were raised under the leadership of the Edendale chiefs Mini, Molife and Khambule. The black scouts provided their own horses and equipment.(6) The number of scouts employed by both the British and Boer sides rose during the war as the value of their intelligence work became more widely recognised."
