Correspondence concerning the dispute between Chief Badirile and Chief Phoi of the Setlagoli Reserve. In 1903 December Chief Weasels died and Badirile Montsioa, the brother of Wessels was nominated as successor. Badirile was in fact the eldest surviving son of of Chief Montsioa's proper Barolong wife but was too young to assume the chieftainship on Montsioa's death. In 1904 Jan his appointment was confirmed by the British Government, as chief of the Barolong in the division of Mafeking. The terms of his appointment were opposed by Chief Phoi who claimed that he was chief of the Ratlou Batalong in the Mafeking area who recognised Moshette as their paramount chief. It wan determined that Badirile had jurisdiction over the area north of the Maritzani River and the southern boundary was determined. Badirile was acknowledged as chief throughout the district who could appoint headmen in charge of the various locations. Thus Phoi came under Chief Badirile.
