Mahikeng is the headquarters of the Barolong Boo Ratshidi people. At the outbreak of the Second Boer War in 1899, the town was besieged. The Siege of Mafeking lasted 217 days from October 1899 to May 1900, and turned Robert Baden-Powell into a national hero. In September 1904, Lord Roberts unveiled an obelisk at Mafeking bearing the names of those who fell in defence of the town. In all, 212 people were killed during the siege, with more than 600 wounded. Boer losses were significantly higher.

As of 1894, Although it was outside the protectorate’s borders, Mafeking serves as capital of the Bechuanaland Protectorate because it is the main location of The British Consulate.
