Description

The fort originally housed the Nonqai (restrainers) or Zululand police, raised in 1883 to serve as a guard for Sir Melmoth Osborne, the resident commissioner. Only fifty men were in the command when it was first formed, but the force was raised to 600 during the Anglo-Boer war. The force also served during the Bambatha Rebellion. The fort now houses a fine museum.
