Around 90 barefoot Zulu police (known as the Nongqayi or ‘restrainers’) moved into the building to maintain law and order in Zululand in what today functions as Zululand’s biggest museum village.
Within the village of Fort Nongqayi are a number of museums. For instance the Zululand Historical Museum, which not only journeys from the Iron Age to the present day to trace the history of the area, but also focuses on the cross-cultural influences the past 200 years have brought to bear on Zululand.
