Their knowledge of geography was a bit off : Inyati is in Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia), not South Africa.

This certainly appears to be Alexander Miller Graham, to judge from the following death notice :
https://www.eggsa.org/newspapers/index.php/south-african-magazine/301-south-africa-1896-2-april-june .

An account of the incident (giving his initials as ANC rather than AM) can be found here (warning : graphic content) :

His medal was auctioned by DNW in 2000 : https://www.dnw.co.uk/auction-archive/past-catalogues/lot.php?auction_id=28&lot_uid=61438 .
Regards
Arthur
