The short-lived rebellion of 1915 was led by John Chilembwe, a Baptist minister trained in the USA. This book contains the testimonies presented to the Commission of Inquiry. Together, they are a source for understanding the causes and character of the Rising and throw light on social and economic relations in early colonial Malawi.
