HC Deb 14 July 1904 vol 138 c34

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies will he say if before or since the war Kaffirs have been employed as overseers in the Transvaal gold mines.


My information is that Kaffirs have not been overseers in the Transvaal mines either before or after the war. But I find in the Blue-books some expressions which lead me to infer that on some occasions, at any rate. Kaffirs have held positions involving some authority over their fellows.
