A Fork In Time

On January 3, 1896, Germany's Kaiser Wilhelm II sent a telegram to Transvaal Republic President, Johannes Kruger congratulating him on the recent success in repelling an attack from British raiders.  In the real timeline, the telegram caused heightened tensions between Britain and Germany.

How would history have been different if further actions had followed the telegram to continue to cause strife between the factions in southern Africa?
