Boer Commandant-General. P.J. Joubert and his general staff officers in the field, having dinner.

Note the African man in the bottom left hand corner of the picture. For the most part, the Boers and the British did not employee or recruit native troops, for fear of drawing the African tribes into the conflict. The man in the picture was likely employed as a servant or attendant, and not as a soldier.
