Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 42
Who was Lendy? Roger Marston argues that "Lendy physically established the abiding Rhodesian principle that any dissent by the natives, and particularly the Shona, must be met with force at the level that would nowadays be called 'shock and awe.' He did this in the so-called Ngomo Incident in 1892 when presented with an allegation of impertinent shop-lifting by a Shona community he mounted an unannounced attack on the village with artillery (a seven-pounder and a Maxim gun) which left at least 23 villagers dead. Two years later he was largely responsible for kickstarting the Matabele War"
