In 1914 the British protectorate of Nyasaland was invaded by the Germans from East Africa. Preoccupied with this threat, the Colonial Government failed to discern another, a few miles from the capital, Blantyre. Alienation of land, harsh working conditions on the tea plantations, and the cruelty of some of the settlers gave rise to one of Africa's earliest nationalist movements. The rebellion, led by a Messianic Baptist preacher, John Chilembwe, was quickly put down and soon forgotten in the greater drama of war, but, among Africans, Chilembwe was not forgotten and his name became a legend.
