Sunday Times - Article: "Gang kills legendary SA war expert

Legendary tourism personality and Anglo-Zulu War expert David Rattray has been killed by a gang at his home near his Fugitive’s Drift Lodge

Legendary tourism personality and Anglo-Zulu War expert David Rattray’s killer entered his house and fired a single shot before being ordered to re-enter the building to fire another two rounds, according to a source close to the scene."
This is such sad news. South Africa has lost a hero; we are all robbed by his murder. I have his audio tapes of the Battles at Isandhlwana & Rorke’s Drift; it is impossible to listen to them with a dry eye. He was a great ambassador for South African culture and tourism, and he brought communities together by the way he passionately portrayed our collective histories. Rest In Peace ubhuti

I never had the opportunity to meet Mr Rattary, but I have heard about him and I was saddened to read the news about his murder. I know that he is with God now, and my condolences go out to his family & friends.
