    What happened to the prophetic girl?

      Nongqawuse was handed over to the British and taken to a women’s prison in Cape Town. She was likely there less than a year, but records of her life are extremely sparse beyond that point – the best I can really say is that she likely spent the remainder on a farm outside of Cape Town. Even the year of her death is fuzzy – likely 1898 (age 57), but I’ve seen later – and her burial place is unconfirmed. Unfortunately her life seems to have been largely defined by the role she played in the Xhosa cattle-killing movement as a teenager.
