Botha to Britain
"I have carried out everything in accordance with our compact at Vereeniging."

On 9 July 1915 a dispatch from General Botha was published stating that he had brought his campaign in South West Africa to a triumphant close, and had received the unconditional surrender of Governor Sietz and the German forces of 3,500 men. The campaign, commencing in February, had lasted five months. The patriotic devotion of General Botha and the loyalty of the great majority of the Dutch people to the cause of the British Empire were a magnificent vindication of the Liberal Cabinet's policy of reconciliation after the close of the South African war.
