Fort Nolela was built on high ground two kilometers south of the drift, and was used in the final assault on Ondini. On the night of 3 may, 1906, the magistrate, H.M. Stainbank, was shot while collecting taxes in the area. This was one amongst several major aggravations that led to later vigorous military action against the rebels during the Bambatha uprising.
