Basutoland Rebellion (The Gun War)
Cape Forces vs Basuto

The Basutoland Rebellion was fought by the Cape Colony with the idea of disarming the Basotho, an object which failed completely, and by the Basotho, in alliance with various tribes in the Transkei and East Griqualand, to drive out the whites. The latter objective was not attained. Many Africans fought for the Cape but there were no Regular British troops other than a handful of Staff Officers. As a further result of the war the Basotho, in time, came, as they desired, under the direct rule of Great Britain instead of that of the Cape.
