HC Deb 19 June 1902 vol 109 cc1110-1
MR. C. P. SCOTT (Lancashire, Leigh)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, whether he can give any information as to the circumstances under which upwards of fifty Boers are alleged to have been massacred by Zulus, with circumstances of barbarity, on 6th May last.


Lord Kitchener reported on the 7th May as follows:— The Boers in the Vryheid District have been driving off native cattle for some time. Yesterday they attacked natives and killed and wounded a considerable number. The natives report they killed twenty-three Boers, including Commandant Potgieter, and recaptured a considerable quantity of cattle. I have no further information.
