Description DM2001071202:GCP:SOCIAL:3AUG1958 - Mamathola, This Once Rich Tribe - We Must Leave Metz. The Native reserve of Metz at the foothills of the Magaliesburg. For 200 years the 1,200 families of the Mamathola have been called one of the richest tribes in the country: but that is a thing of the past. Today after a long peaceful existence, they face the danger of becoming a wondering tribe. Knowledgable farmers who once owned acres upon acres of orchards, and old men who were expert farmers in their day, had all the same story to tell me. The tribe was moved from their ancestral land in the lush Letsitele valley in the Wolkberg Mountains. Story by Obed Musi. (Photograph by Alf Kumalo BAHA) see Post Aug 10, 1958
