Anglo-Zulu War (Effects)
Transcript of Anglo-Zulu War (Effects)
this was not the end of the Zulu resistance, in 1906 was there a rebellion against colonial authorities when the tried to introduce a new form of tax which affected the Zulu people, this rebellion was led by a minor chief called Bambatha, and thus it was called the "Bambatha Rebellion". the British used harsh ways to stop this rebellion and about 4000 of the rebellions were killed. the british blamed this on the Zulu king, Dinizulu (Cetshwayo's son). They captured him and sent him to exile. The Bambatha Rebellion is seen today as a symbol of resistance to colonialism.
The Anglo-Zulu War was fought in 1879 between the British Empire and the Zulu Kingdom.

A new scheme was created which divided Zululand into thirteen chiefdoms headed by compliant chiefs which ensured that the Zulus would no longer unite under a single king and made internal divisions and civil wars inevitable.
After the battle of Ulundi the Zulu army dispersed, most of the leading chiefs tendered their submission, and Cetshwayo became a fugitive.
