Sekhukhuni - child born from the Cave 'creeper' The Marota lived in the land between the Vaal and Limpopo rivers. They regarded this territory as their country and admitted or excluded all corners to it. The political landscape has, of course, changed greatly since those far-off days. After Sekhukhune's death, Pretoria divided Sekhukhuneland into small "tribal" units that owed allegiance not to one central' Marota Authority but to "Native Commissioners". This effectively destroyed the Marota Empire. Thereafter, the Bapedi people were forced to seek employment on white farms, in factories and mines as migrant labourers. The migrant labour system that the Bapedi used to build their empire was now skewed against them. In a curious sort of way this fulfilled Sekhukhune's prophecy of December 1879, that after him no other chief would be able to stand up to Pretoria since they would all be its tools. Wars of Resistance When Hendrick Potgieter and the Voortrekkers arrived in the Marota Empire in the middle of the 19th century, Sekhukhune's father, Sekwati (1775-1861), resisted them. In a famous battle at Phiring in 1838 Sekwati defeated the Voortrekkers by the simple tactic of establishing his stronghold on an impenetrable hill. But Phiring was insecure and so Sekwati moved his headquarters to Thaba Mosega (the fighting koppie) in the Lulu Mountains of the Eastern Transvaal from which his people were dislodged only by a series of bitter wars ending in December 1879. He became king upon the death of his father, King Sekwati, in September 1861. Sekukuni married Legoadi IV in 1862, and lived at a mountain, now known as Thaba Ya Leolo,which he fortified. As the Bapedi paramount leader he was faced with political challenges from the Boers, the independent South African Republic and the British Empire, with considerable social change caused by Christian missionaries. He fought two wars. The first war was successfully fought in 1876, against other tribes and their Swazi allies. The second war, against the British and Swazi in 1879 in what became known as the Sekukuni Wars, was less successful. Sekhukhune was detained in Pretoria until 1881. After a return to his kingdom, he was fatally stabbed by an assassin in 1882. The assassins are presumed to have been sent by his brother and competitor, Mampuru.
