Question and answer
Q: more causes of the chimurenga war?
A: The First Chimurenga is now celebrated in Zimbabwe as the First War of Independence, but it is best known in the Anglo-Saxon world as the Second Matabele War. [ This conflict refers to the 1896-1897 Ndebele-Shona revolt against colonial rule by the British South Africa Company. Mlimo, the Matabele spiritual/religious leader, is credited with fomenting much of the anger that led to this
confrontation. He convinced the Ndebele and Shona that the white settlers (almost 4,000 strong by then) were responsible for the drought, locust plagues and the cattle disease rinderpest ravaging the country at the time. Mlimo's call to battle was well timed. Only a few months earlier, the British South Africa Company's Administrator General for Matabeleland, Leander Starr Jameson, had sent most of his troops and armaments to fight the Transvaal Republic in the ill-fated Jameson Raid. This left the country?s defenses in disarray. The Ndebele began their revolt in March 1896, and in June 1896 they were joined by the Shona. The BSAC immediately sent troops to suppress the Ndebele and the Shona, but it took months for the British to re-capture their major colonial fortifications under siege by native warriors. Mlimo was eventually assassinated in his temple in Matobo Hills by the American scout Frederick Russell Burnham. Upon learning of the death of Mlimo, Cecil Rhodes boldly walked unarmed into the native's stronghold and persuaded the impi to lay down their arms. [2] The First Chimurenga thus ended on October 1897 and Matabeleland and Mashonaland were later renamed Rhodesia. ]
