  • Below are some photos that I have sourced from the Society of Malawi on the Ngoni people during the early period of the British occupation of Malawi. The captioning is from the Society and has largely been kept intact except in a few cases where I have added a few words for clarification. Copyright Society of Malawi, all rights reserved.
    Chikuse, the Angoni King of the Maseko Ngoni in Central Nyasaland(present day Malawi). Mentioned in Montague Keith's 'Far Interior'.

    Postcard: 'Angoni Natives.' Reverse reads: 'Issued by African Lakes Corporation, British Central Africa and 45 Renfield Street, Glasgow. Inland 1/2d, Foreign 1d.' Apparently, if this was sent to a foreign address, there could not be any text written on the back, except the address.

    These are nice photos. I have learnt that Sukasuka should be Msukasuka? That is very interesting piece of Ngonis
