Morena Moshoeshoe Pitsong

Morena Moshoeshoe I

"Moshoeshoe, when hearing of the trekker settlement [...], stated that '... the ground on which they were belonged to me, but I had no objections to their flocks grazing there until such time as they were able to proceed further; on condition, however, that they remained in peace with my people and recognised my authority.' [www.biography.ms]"

They did not.
