Vegkop: Die volgende oggend (16 Oktober) word die krygers bemerk en hulle sinistêre sisgeluid is hoorbaar. Nagenoeg 6000 Matabele onder leiding van Mkalipi tegemoet. Die swartes skreeu "Mzilikazi!" en begin knopkieries en assegaaie in die perderuiters se rigting gooi. Terug in die laer wag die vrouens wat koeëls in gereedheid bring; die manne maak gewere skoon en Sarel Cilliers doen 'n gebed. Genadiglik sterf net 2 Trekkers in die slag.
