Brief Overview

This article details the names of the cattle used during ilobolo negotiations, and also their purposes. It briefs us on the roles of these cows and also the motive behind them being used as part of the negotiations. What is important to note though is that initially only six cows were used during ilobolo negotiations, but Sir Theophilus Shepstone – a colonial administrator – changed the number of cows to eleven.
