Hi All .
Someone posted the other day that Dabulamanzi & Dunn disliked each other and another posted that initially they
were friends ! , well I cant find that thread , have looked for 40 mins ! . I can shed some light on that courtesy of an article written by Ian Knight in Vol 10 The Journal Of The AZWHS Dec 2001 .
'' Many officials in the Natal Govt regarded Dunn with suspicion because of his former association with the king , in the event the best Wolseley could do was make Dunn one of the thirteen ' Kinglets ' , whom he set up to rule zululand . Dunn was confirmed in possession of his old lands , and his authority extended further westwards , along the banks of the Thukela .In the west , his propertybordered that awarded to the Sotho Chief , Hlubi, another
outsider who was rewarded with territory by the British . In effect , Wolseley had created a buffer zone along the entire Natal / Zululand boundary, which he had given to the two men who could most be relied upon to support British policy . Dunn accepted the award ' On condition that Cetywayo should never hold any position in the country again '. He formed an alliance with the powerful anti - royalist groups who now ruled the northern districts
Prince Hamu and Chief Zibhebhu - and between them they continually harassed ardent royalists in their districts
In particular , this earned Dunn the hatred of his former friend Dabulamanzi , who was steadfastly loyal to Cetshwayo , and who now was placed under Dunn's authority ''.
