“Dedicated to all the heroes and heroines of the African continent and all her children who shall make her name great”
There have been many outstanding leaders and generals in the African continent, but none captures the imagination as Shaka of Senzangakhona. From a small volunteer army of approximately 200 and a territory that seemed, in comparison with other neighbouring states, no more than a small, local district, Shaka built in a period of ten years a formidable standing army of about 60,000 to 70,000 highly trained men. His rule extended over a large part of Southern Africa. Areas that were not under his direct rule were either under his protection or had fallen under the suzerainty of the generals who had adopted his military tactics. Many of these generals established their own powerful kingdoms. Shaka was a consummate leader. Not only was he a great military genius, but his varied gifts demonstrated qualities of organization and innovation that were unique. The military machinery he initiated brought about, fifty years later, one of the most dramatic defeats the British army suffered in all its colonial history.
