Text

In 1896 Baron Francis Dhanis was given command of an expedition to the Upper Nile. His troops, largely composed of the Batetela tribes who had only been recently enlisted, and who had been irritated by the execution of some of their chiefs, allegedly for cannibalism, mutinied and murdered many of their white officers in what has become known as the Batetela Rebellion. Unlike the Arabs, the Batetela were well-armed and disciplined. For two years (1897–1898), Dhanis was constantly occupied by the rebellion. Eventually he succeeded in breaking up the several bands of Batetela. In 1899 Baron Dhanis returned to Belgium with the honorary rank of vice governor-general.

English

År 1896 fick baron Francis Dhanis befäl för en expedition till Övre Nilen i nuvarande Sydsudan för att stoppa arabernas slavhandel. Med på expeditionen var svensken Carl Jonas Walther Jochnick. Under expeditionen vände sig dock hans soldater som tillhörde tetela (batetela) mot sina vita ledare. Under flera år kämpade han för att slå ner upproret. Detta har kallats the Batetela Rebellion.
