Dinuzulu first appealed to the British empire for help, but had no response. He then offered rewards of land to Boer farmers of the Vryheid and Utrecht districts, to come and fight on his side and restore the Zulu Kingdom. In 1884 a group of Boer farmers from the districts of Utrecht and Vryheid undertook to help restore order, in return for land for the formation of an independent republic with access to the sea. Led by General Louis Botha, they formed Dinuzulu’s Volunteers and after several clashes with Zibhebhu, defeated him at the Battle of Ghost Mountain (also known as the Battle of Tshaneni) on 5 June 1884. Other agreements were also signed by Retief and other leaders.
Vryheid – Nieuwe Republiek (Boer-Zoeloe)
Dinuzulu kaCetshwayo (1868 – 18 October 1913, commonly misspelled Dinizulu) was the king of the Zulu nation from 20 May 1884 until his death in 1913. He succeeded his father Cetshwayo, who was the last king of the Zulus to be officially recognized as such by the British. Zululand had been broken up into 13 smaller territories by the British after the Anglo-Zulu War, and Cetshwayo, and subsequently Dinuzulu, administered one of them.
The lawful successor, Dinuzulu, was only fifteen and so too young to assume political responsibilities. Moreover, his uncles feared for his life, so they took him to a safe place in the Transvaal. Early in 1884, they turned to a group of Boers on the Transvaal border to aid them in ensuring the succession and survival of the royal lineage. On 5 July 1884, the uSuthu, supported by a hundred mounted Boers, defeated Zibhebhu at Entshaneni in the Lebombo Mountains. In return for their assistance, the Boers received 800 farms, comprising 1,355,000 morgen (more than 4,000 square miles). However, Britain intervened, blocking the Boers from the sea and reducing their territory.
Dinuzulu appealed to the British for intervention but he was reluctant to resign himself to annexation.
On 14 May 1887, the British annexed Zululand and the Zulu Reserve, extending the Native Law of Natal to the whole country. The Governor of Natal was to rule by proclamation; but it is clear that Dinuzulu regarded his status under the protectorate as unchanged. The Zulu people continued to look to the royal house for assistance, inspiration, and leadership. White magistrates made every effort to reduce the authority of the royal house but the uSuthu leaders were not submissive. Dinuzulu ignored the magistrates who summoned him and fined him for continuing to administer the affairs of the nation as if his authority was supreme.
The Governor allowed Zibhebhu to return to his old lands because he hoped that this would throw the balance of power into the hands of the Natal Government. Zibhebhu immediately drove the uSuthu supporters in his territory to flight. With this Dinuzulu openly rebelled.
In June 1888, he led an attack on the Mandlakazi and defeated them at Nongoma. Pursued by British troops, he escaped to the Transvaal where he evaded capture for three months. In 1889, a court ”” the impartiality of which was in doubt ”” found Dinuzulu and his two uncles, Ndabuko and Shingana, guilty of high treason and exiled them to the island of St Helena.
In 1897, Zululand was formally incorporated into Natal and in the next few years, much of it was opened to white settlement. Dinuzulu was released and installed as ‘Government Induna’ in 1898.
During 1906, Dinuzulu became implicated in the rebellion of a minor chief, Bambatha, who refused to pay the poll tax introduced by the Natal Government. The Zulus, who continued to regard Dinuzulu as king, turned to him for support, as did the Natal Government, expecting him as ‘Government Induna’ to deal severely with the disturbances. When Dinuzulu did not, he was arrested in 1909, and accused of harbouring rebels. In spite of the famous defence by former Cape premier, W P Schreiner, Dinuzulu was sentenced to four years imprisonment.
Seven years of internecine strife sapped the Zulu nation of its strength and self-sufficiency and European encroachment on every side deprived them of much of their land. By 1894, Zululand had become one of the main sources of labour supply on the Witwatersrand.
The British realized the futility of breaking up Zululand into the territories and restored Cetshwayo as paramount leader of the territories. However, they left one of Cetshwayo’s sons, Usibepu (Zibhebhu), alone with his lands intact. On 22 July 1883, Usibepu attacked Cetshwayo’s new kraal in Ulundi, wounding the king and causing him to flee.

He spoke also about Culture unity in their ranks and how important it is.
In 1890 Dinuzulu was captured by the British and exiled to the island of Saint Helena for several years, for leading a Zulu army against the British due to annexation of the coastal plains of Zululand. In 1897, Zululand was formally incorporated into Natal and in the next few years, much of it was opened to white settlement. Dinuzulu was released and installed as ‘Government Induna’ in 1898.

TREATIES AND AGREEMENTS
At national level bilateral or multilateral agreements are signed and funding made
available in South Africa and its partner countries. The purpose of these programmes is to enhance scientific and technological cooperation between South Africa and one (bilateral), two (trilateral) or several (multilateral) partner countries. These programmes encourage collaboration between students, postdoctoral fellows and academic staff members in South Africa, and students, postdoctoral fellows and academic staff members in partner countries. It provides early career researchers in South Africa with the opportunity to establish and develop sustainable international research networks.
Die geskiedenis van ons voorouers, die Trekboere bewys daar was heelwat unieke handelsbetrekkinge / ooreenkomste/ verdrae wat aangegaan is, tussen ons voorouers en swart stamme. Daar kan ook besliste stamme uitgesonder word. Verdrae en ooreenkomste in die vorm van ruil transaksies vir dienste gelewer van een party wat betaal is in die vorm van grond van die ander party. Hierdie grondgebiede was oor die algemeen nie bewoon nie.
Soos met enige ooreenkoms wat aangegaan word, is daar altyd spesifieke en voorafbepaalde gesprekvoerings en raadplegings wat aangegaan is, het die basis gevorm van die hele verdrag, waar dit later deur beide partye wat teenwoordig was, onderteken is.
Wat baie betekenisvol is. Hierdie verdrae het internasionaal erkenning geniet en daarom was heelwat Boere republieke internasionaal erken.
Die Zoeloekoning Cetshwayo het in Februarie 1884 in Eshowe gesterf. Sy seun Dinuzulu wat die aangewese opvolger was kon egter nie die troon bestyg nie as gevolg van aanhoudende stam gevegte tussen die verskillende Zoeloehoofmanne. Daar was destyds ooreenkomste met Dinuzulu aangegaan vir die verkrying van grond. Later is ‘n Boere republiek gestig.
OOREENKOMSTE EN VERDRAE
Die huidige “korrupte” regering doen dit ook maar – reis oral en sluit verdrae. Enige ander regeringsleiers vandag besoek ander lande en sluit ooreenkomste wat bilaterale ooreenkomste genoem word. Dit geld op alle vlakke.
Voorbeeld. Die doel van die bilaterale of trilaterale samewerkende programme is om wetenskaplike en tegnologiese samewerking tussen Suid-Afrika en een (bilaterale) of twee (trilaterale) vennoot-lande te bevorder en om die geleentheid te bied vir jong navorsers in Suid-Afrika om interaksie te hê met navorsers oorsee, en sodoende netwerke te ontwikkel en te versterk.
