Without realising it XoiXa XaXa had actually made the first African fashion statement and it did not bode well for the poor ostrich. Three months later when he got home, hungry all over again, the leather was set in these beautiful footwraps which they called ‘i shuas’ meaning “free from dung”.The Dutch had a great fear of water and, unlike the San in Africa who had a chronic shortage of water due to poor service delivery (Yes . . They were stupid enough to build their homes below a damwall which would regularly burst and drown them by the thousands.The appointed pastor to this flotilla was no one else then the same guy who grabbed Xoi Xa XaXa’s great great great grand daughter’ Ishuas when he was caught kafufuling with the young princess.

Van Riebeeck”s eyes glinted when the pastor related his adventures about his stay with the San.They sailed into Cape Town harbour without even getting permission from the harbour captain,who’s wrath they managed to escape when they bribed him with a “berrel”of kentucky.Van Riebeeck eventually did manage to steal a few ostriches wich he smuggled to Batavia,where he started a new company,Bata Ishuas.
