[Source - Chloe Rushovich for FHYA, 2017, using KCAL materials: Socwatsha kaPapu was a member of the amaLala people. His father lived at oBadaneni, one of Tshaka's kraals. He grew up and was married at oZwathini. He may have worked as a migrant labourer in the 1870s. He was able to acquire land with his brother under the official auspices in the old Ngongoma country near the Nsuze River, and re-establish their homesteads close to the graves of their ancestral chiefs. He was interviewed by James Stuart in 1897, 1900, 1901, 1902, 1904, 1905 1906, 1907, 1908, 1909, 1910, 1912, 1913, 1914, 1916, and 1921. He was interviewed multiple times. At least one of these interviews took place at Silverton Road in Durban, at least one of them took place at the Native Affairs Department in Pietermaritzburg, at least one of them took place at 34 Loop Street in Pietermaritzburg, and at least two of these interviews took place at High Brae (Stuart's home in Hilton, near Pietermaritzburg).]
