The Company began attaching great importance to the capture of Negroes in African countries such as Angola, who would become slaves on sugar mills and mines. In order to protect this financial interest, the Count carried the war in Brazil into Africa. After gaining control of the African territories, the Company ignored Maurits' argument for shifting them to government rule, and opted to retain control themselves. Admiral Jol, along with many other Dutch in the region, later succumbed to illness that spread quickly through the camp.
