HC Deb 20 February 1883 vol 276 c408

asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether he has received any corroboration of the intelligence telegraphed from Durban to the "Times" last week, to the effect that Cetywayo has "eaten up" all the crops of Umfanabendhlela, one of the deposed chieftains who was opposed to his restoration; and, whether he has heard of any intention being expressed by Cetywayo of sending a deputation to England to claim back Dunnsland?


in reply, said, that no confirmation of the report referred to had been received, and if it were true he thought the Government would have heard of it.
