In 1891, an unauthorized BSACo invasion of Portuguese East Africa to secure a deepwater port for landlocked Rhodesia threatened Anglo-Portuguese relations.
For example, the BSACo's port-seeking enterprise caused London to sign a friendship accord with Portugal both as a confidence-building measure and as a check against the company's unauthorized ventures.
In that year, an agent of the British South Africa Company (BSACo) by the name of Frank Lochner signed a concessionary treaty with King Lewanika of the Lozi Kingdom.
