The banishment of Mashilo Tseke Nchabeleng, Mamogase Sebei, Kgalabotwane Tseke and Alfred Mamagale Tebeila from Sekhukhuneland, Lydenburg District, Transvaal [Limpopo Province]in 1965 was motivated on the grounds that they were “weerbarstiges” (rebels) who were opposed to BA (Bantu Administration), and interfering in the “smooth running of tribal affairs.”  It was noted that the Chief transferred them to the authority of another Chief but that they refused to move.
