This paper recounts the encounter that occurred between the Anglican missionaries of the Universities Mission to Central Africa (UMCA) and the local Mang’anja people at Magomero, in Southern Malawi in 1861. It situates the encounter in the context of slave trade and local conflicts, and war between the Mang’anja and the Yao people in which the missionaries themselves were embroiled. The paper argues that, centred on the differences in perceptions, interpretations of issues that related to land, culture and religious worldviews, the encounter entailed some acts of resistance by the local Mang’anja people.
