And so the fourth week of this great adventure begins...
She tells a story of Gweck or Galewck a local wizard whose seat of power was close to the pyramid of Dengkins and who gave the British much trouble. His grandfather had built the pyramid, which was about 100 ft high and built entirely of buckets of earth brought by his followers.
"Women who wanted children, farming natives who wanted crops and so on all came to him with their prayers and their money and their buckets of earth," she writes.
"He foretold things like eclipses and impressed the native chiefs so much that they were willing to listen to him rather than to the British Government."
The British eventually drove him across the border to Abyssinia (Ethiopia) and destroyed his pyramid with dynamite and bombs dropped from airplanes. However he was still alive and threatening a come back - one of the reasons Lady Heath was quite happy to pay Dick Bentley £5 an hour to escort her from Mongalla to Malakal.
PS: Gweck was killed in 1929 while attempting to return to the Sudan.
