Re: S.J. Wolpe #southafrica

Today, I came upon an interesting reference to an S.J. Wolpe, naturalized
British citizen, resident of Transvaal, who was murdered on March 22, 1911,
in Angola. There are three references to this person in the SA National
Archives.

I am wondering if anyone knows who this was, what his actual first name was,
and why he was murdered?

One often thinks that the lives of our ancestors were safe and secure in
Southern Africa, but often they were not and this reference to a murder is
an example of this. There may be other references to situations which
occurred that also confirm this lack of security in the frontier society
which was Southern Africa.
