Umzi kaPhalo [House of Phalo]

House of Phalo The word Xhosa refers to a people and a language of South Africa. The Xhosa-speaking people are divided into a number of subgroups with their own distinct but related heritages. One of these subgroups is called Xhosa as well. The other main subgroups are the Bhaca, Bomvana, Mfengu, Mpondo, Mpondomise, Xesibe, and Thembu.

Unless otherwise stated, this article refers to all the Xhosa-speaking people. A long time ago, from a place called in the Luhlangeni mountains near the lost river Dadasi a Chief known only as Umnguni from the name of his people decided to emigrate South across the Ukhahlamba (Drakensburg) along the way he assimilated a lot of other smaller clanlets and moved down with them. His people had a centralized leadership system and had with them iron which would prove critical to their success.

On crossing the Drakensburg Mnguni suddenly found himself in conflict with the native clans and populations both of Nguni and Khoi descent that had settled in this new land. Through trade, intermarriage and conquest he managed to create a place for his people in this hostile new land. To the Khoi people these strange invaders were known as the Chobona because of how they greeted which was “Sawubona”.

Their most formidable foes were the San a group of hunter gathers. The San believed that their God had given all the animals in the world for them to hunt and this included the cattle of the Chobona. They hunted the herds of domesticated cattle until the Chobona got angry. This lead a bloody conflict that resulted in the crushing of the weaker San groups and the abduction of San and Khoi Khoi women and young men to serve as wives and warriors in Xhosa society. The San appalled at their greed and lack of generosity with their animals named these new tall and dark strangers the Xhosa: the angry men. This name stuck to Umnguni’s oldest son and he was known through the land as umXhosa the angriest of the Chobona.

As with most Nguni nations it was quite expected of royal sons when they came of age that they move away from their father’s house and start their own clan. The right of inheritance was not automatic as all royal sons had a right to claim the throne should they be strong enough to do so. The rules of succession were such that then son of the Great house had automatic right to the paramouncy.

As a Chief grew older his influence and wealth rose, and when he was strong enough he would seek alliance by marriage to one of the stronger clans. This youngest house because of her rank would be taken into the great house where she would bear the heir. So unlike the European and Asian model it was often the youngest son who was King provided he was strong enough to keep the throne. The oldest son would rule as Regent until the youngest brother came of age and when he was fit to take the throne the oldest would leave taking with him his followers but would have to pay tribute to his younger brother.

Xhosa as his people were moving and expanding begot Malangana who begot Nkosiyamntu. Nkosiyamntu had four children the Cirha, Tshawe, Jwara (oldest), Qwambi. When Nkosiyamntu died his Greathouse son Cirha naturally took over the role of chief. The only problem was that he was not a capable leader of men and his older sibling through a lot of political maneuvering Tshawe overthrew Cirha and took over throne with the support of his neighbouring Mpondomise allies amaRhudulu [Ngwevu] and he was the Paramount of all the Xhosa. He led the Xhosa to an expansive drive and swallowed up a large number of Nguni and Khoisan tribes in the region.

Tshawe had Ngcwangu who gave birth to Skhomo who gave birth to Togu in around 1686. Togu had three sons Ntinde who founded the amaNtinde tribe, Ketshe who founded the amaBhayi and Ngconde who was Paramount. Ngconde’s children were Hleke founder of the amaHleke, Mdange (~ 1736) of the imiDange Gando of the amaKwayi and Tshiwo (~1704) who was Paramount to all Xhosa speaking nations in the region. Tshiwo had three sons Phalo the Paramount, followed by Gwali founder of the amaGwali and Thiso. Phalo was the second son of Tshiwo but his older brother Gwali was from a junior wife and Phalo was in line for the throne. Tshiwo died the same year of Phalo’s birth so his uncle Mdange took over the reigns as regent. Gwali joined forces with Ntinde, chief of the AmaNtinde clan, to overthrow Phalo but was not successful. Phalo had troubles he was married to two women of similar rank and none of their fathers wanted their daughter to be a subordinate wife. To fix this problem an elder from the Jwara clan advised that the Oldest of the girls would be in the Great house and the youngest would be inducted into the Right Hand House. This meant that sons born to these women had the right to be Kings. The Great house though would have to be differed to and the right-hand house son would then migrate to form his own kingdom. This afforded greater expansion to the Xhosa and was followed by all kings who followed. The sons of Phalo were Langa, Gcaleka (Great House) and Rharhabe of the right hand house, Lutshaba (1730) and Nukwa. Through their rivalry they would lead to split of the Xhosa nation and set the stage for one of the dramas of Southern Africa. AmaMbalu Langa (1705 –1794) was the founder of the amaMbalu sub-group of the Xhosa nation and reigned as chief from 1740 until his death. Langa is known to have had two sons Nqeno (1759) and Thole. AmaGcaleka Gcaleka (1730-1792), he had 3 known sons Khauta, Velelo and Nqoko. He became paramount in 1775. Gcaleka tried to usurp his farther’s rule and interclan war broke out resulting in the Xhosa tribe to split into two major sub-groups, the Rharhabe and the Gcaleka. Khawuta 1761-1804 was the second Chief of the Gcaleka people, a sub-group of the Xhosa nation. Khawuta was the eldest son. Khawuta had 3 known sons, Bhurhu (1785) Hintsa 1789 and Malashe (1799). He became paramount chief of the Xhosas in 1792. Not much else is known about Khawuta other than peace reigned during his regime. Kwawuta died in 1804 near what is now Kentani in the Eastern Cape,other sources record 1794 and 1820as the years of death.

Nqoko 1730-1792 was a regent and 3rd paramont chief of the Gcaleka. Nqoko was the third son of Gcaleka and took over the Gcaleka when his oldest brother Chief Khawuta died in 1804 and served until 1820 when his nephew Hintsa took over. Nqoko died in 1792 Ama Rharhabe Rarabe ka Phalo (about 1722-1782) was the founder of the Rarabe sub-group of the Xhosa nation. Rarabe was the 2nd son of Phalo. Rarabe is known to have had at least two wifes. He had 9 sons from his first wife, Mlawu, Jalousa, Siko, Sigcawu, Cebo, Hlahla, Nzwane, Mnyaluza and Ntsusa and from his second wife Nojoli kaNdungwana of the Thembu he had two sons Ndlambe and Nukwa. Rarabe died near present day Dohne in the Eastern Cape Province.

The Civil WarAlthough Gcaleka was the rightful heir to Phalo’s kingdom, Rharhabe develop a reputation (and a large following) as a fearless warrior. Eventually, rivalry between the two brothers resulted in civil war. Rharhabe was defeated and forced to flee west of the Kei River. There, he established a kingdom among the Xhosa currently living there. Unfortunately, this region was heavily populated and Rharhabe’s arrival caused quite a bit of turmoil. Smaller clans defeated in battle were forced to settle elsewhere as Rharhabe sought to consolidate his power. Rharhabe and his heir, Mlawu, were both killed during this period, and control of the clan transferred to Mlawu’s son, Ngqika.

Although the clan took Ngqika’s name, he was too young to rule. As with Xhosa tradition, Rharhabe’s other son, Ndlambe, served as ruler until Ngqika matured. As second son, Ndlambe had title, but no real authority–as soon as he was old enough, Ngqika would take over. Nevertheless, he supervised a major expansion in the size and power of the clan (now called the Ngqika). By the late 1700s, this expansion resulted in the inevitable contact with the European settlers in Cape Colony.

Both the Africans and Europeans depended on cattle as the fundamental economic asset. Thus, both groups competed for the prime grazing lands located west of the Great Kei river. In addition to fighting over grazing lands, raiding parties on both sides stole cattle and other livestock. The number and severity of the conflicts increased rapidly. By 1779, the situation had deteriorated beyond repair. Over the next 25 years, three Xhosa wars broke out. While these were mainly border skirmishes, they did cause more distrust between the Xhosa and Europeans.

One noteworthy development during this period was the short-term alliances between Ndlambe and the Dutch settler (or Boers). In 1793, Ndlambe sought to defeat the remaining Xhosa clans west of the Kei River. This would make the Ngqika clan the paramount clan in the region and a major threat to their Gcaleka cousins to the east. This Second Frontier War was not much of a war at all. The Boers, eager to stop constant cattle raids, mounted a concerted attack and drove several smaller clans out of the lands west of the Groot-Vis River. There, Ndlambe waited with his armies and routed his fleeing cousins. 

The border situation might have died down, but for the fact that young Ngqika was now eighteen, and ready to assume the throne. Ndlambe, of course, was not so willing to give up power, so he appealed to the clan. When this didn’t work, he and his followers sought assistance from the Gcaleka, west of the Kei River. The Gcaleka, fearing the new Chief Ngqika would seek to rekindle and old rivalry, decided to support Ndlambe, and sent a small detachment to assist him and his followers. In a legendary battle, Ngqika defeated the force and took Ndlambe prisoner.

The plot thickened in 1795, when the British took control of the cape. Now an undisputed world power, the British colonial empire spread from South America to East India. They viewed their South African possessions the same way they viewed their other possessions–a resource to be mined. When the local population interfered with this endeavor, the population was unseated. They took this attitude to Ngqika with a suggestion that the Xhosa clans west of the Groot-Vis River relocate east to help resolve the border disputes. Ngqika happily agreed, knowing full well he had no authority over these groups. This is where the story becomes interesting and I will proceed to tell you more about the strife Ngqika between Ndlambe, the death of Hintsa and the greatest of all Xhosa Princes, Jongumsobomvu Maqoma kaNgqika and his younger brother the indecisive King Sandile.

    • Albertyn Potgieter says:

      Would like to know more about (12) the amaGqunukhwebe chiefs.
      Great article

      • Thanks Albertyn,

        The book “The House of Phalo” say’s this about AmaGqunukwebe:

        “…Another important event in Xhosa was the invasion of the Ngqosini clan. Gaba their leader, hoisted an elephants tail at the great place and indicated that he viewed himself as chief. Tshiwo was saved by only by the intervention of a councilor named Khwane. A widespread oral tradition that Khwane had been entrusted with witchcraft executions, but that instead of doing his duty, he had hidden the condemned (witches) people in a forest where they had intermarried with local Koi. At the critical moment when Tshiwo was on the brink of defeat, Khwane led his secret army into battle and saved the day. Tshiwo rewarded him by appointing him a chief in equal rank to amaTshawe, his people became known as the amaGqunukwebe, probably because of the large number of Khoi in their ranks”

        Thus when they praise themselves they call out Tshiwo all the way to Tshawe i.e.
        uChungwa, uTshaka,
        uTyaka, uKhwane,
        uTshiwo, uNgconde,
        uTogu, uSkhomo,
        uNgcwangu, uTshawe.

    • Mboniselo Zibula says:

      Andinalwazi ngokunabileyo kodwa ithi imbali bangamaBhaca, bemnka kwaZulu. Akunyanzelekanga ke uba xa ubani elibhaca lonto ithetha kuthi ngumZulu by origin. Zange qha bafune ubaphantsi kombuso kaTshaka bemnke baBhaca bekhokelwe nguMdzikana.

      • Point of correction kuqala. Amabhaca or UMadzikane originally 4rm Swazini not KwaZulu.. KwaZuluufike wema khona ngenxa yokuba wacela kuyise ukuba ake ayobona ukuba kuphilwa kanjani kwezinye izizwe. Ufike uMadzikane wema phesheya komfula iTugela, yena noTshaka bohlulwa nguloMfula. Bebemane bencedisana ke xa kuliwa. In short, uthe uMadzikane esaskuba ebekwe ngokusesikweni ngutata wakhe ukuba abe yiKumkani yesizwe afike wasenza pha ebeme khona, waqala uTshaka wangamthandi, kulapho ke amhlasele khona coz uTshaka ebefuna uMadzikane abe phantsi kwakhe. Kulapho ke uMadzikane aye washiya khona walwa esiza kwelicala laseMzimkhulu. As a result uTshaka wafela phezu kwentaba iNtsizwa. Bendiya kukubalisela ke mntakwe2 ngokupheleleyo if besindawonye.

        Zanele intle into yokuba ubenolwazi olungaka ngamaBhaca. Kha uncede ke sisi undithumelele ireferences zakho. Uze uncede ke sisi ufunde nale ka B.W. Ntuli: ABASEMABHELENI (2014); Molema S.M. THE BANTU PAST AND PRESENT (1963); JH. SOGA : THE SOUTH EASTERN BANTU (1930) and others.These have been very much informative for me and I likepeoplewith suggestions rather than castigating them. This is the only way we can learn from each other – sharing knowledge and views rather than trying by allmeans toprove that one is right and the other one is wrong. You have a lot of knowledge and information and would like to learn from you about that history of amaBhaca whether they come from the three NGUNI lines – AMANGUNI -OQOBO, AMATEKELA-NGUNIOR THE NTUNGWA-NGUNIs.
        Uze ukhe ujonge ke nalento yeziBoundaries/borders simane sizibiyela ngazo kuba yenye into ephazamisayo xa kusenziwa lo mlando wezizizwe.

      “…Another important event in Xhosa was the invasion of the Ngqosini clan. Gaba their leader, hoisted an elephants tail at the great place and indicated that he viewed himself as chief. Tshiwo was saved by only by the intervention of a councilor named Khwane. A widespread oral tradition that Khwane had been entrusted with witchcraft executions, but that instead of doing his duty, he had hidden the condemned (witches) people in a forest where they had intermarried with local Koi. At the critical moment when Tshiwo was on the brink of defeat, Khwane led his secret army into battle and saved the day. Tshiwo rewarded him by appointing him a chief in equal rank to amaTshawe, his people became known as the amaGqunukwebe, probably because of the large number of Khoi in their ranks”

      @Mboniselo Zibula
      Well, with that logic you should not read any history at all. If you dispute something before you have any real facts (knowledge) to back up your claim is illiterate to Me.
      ALL history is debatable in its factuality.
      Perhaps you can advise i.e. research and correct the “lies” and comedy in our history? Or provide evidence that “fact a,b,c” is false and “fact x, y, z” is true etc.
      Don’t just present a “problem” be part of the solution. Because even your question is undeveloped, I mean if uCirha was stripped off any authority then it means he would have no authority, i.e. to be chief or village leader(or whatever “isbonda” is in English). I mean amaKwayi were expelled by uTshiwo from amaTshawe and inherently expelled from any Xhosa royal rank (or status) even to this day, that is what happened to Cirha.

  59. Ncobe says:

    The writer of the story on AmaXhosa is making a number of factual mistakes. For example, he writes that Ntsusa was the son to Rharhabe. This is not true.

    Rharhabe took a Qwathi woman called Nojoli who gave birth to Ntsusa( daughter), Mlawu, Ndlambe, and Khalandile(second daughter) according to SEK Mqhayi (Abantu besiZwe, 1940). In other words the amaXhosa of Rharhabe royal house is descended from the Qwathi woman Nojoli. Ndlambe was raised by the Qwathi and later was to play a major part as the leader of the colonial resistence in the Cape. Mlawu begot Ngqika but he died before his son’s maturity, leaving Ndlambe to be regent. Ntsusa, Rharhabe’s first daughter, was married to one Qwathi chief but because Lobola cattle were less than 200, Rharhabe got upset and went to seize Qwathi cattle with his army. War broke out with the Qwathi in 1782. Rharhabe died during that war across the Xuka river near eLuwini when it was flooded.

    Molweni batkuthi, Mna ndinguNgqosini uThithiba, uNozinga, ndiva kamnandi xa amadoda neentombi zakwaNtu ziphicotha imicimbi yemvelaphi yethu, ibabuhlungu ke indaba yokuxelelwa imbali yakho ngomnye umntu wolunye uhlanga, kodwa ndibophulele abanye kuba bazalwe kude kudala kunam. Kukho impikiswano ngezimvo ngokwemvelaphi yeligama lithi Xhosa, yaye zininzi iindindi zenkcazelo enye ithi igama elithi Xhosa libiwe kwisiQhakancu, abalifanisa noKhoisan, kuba isithi lenkcazelo, indlela abantu basentshona bekunzima ngayo ukubisa u-(X), bebede bathi (Kh) ayindibeki kude ke lengcombolo,kuba nangoku ezinye iintlanga zibizwa OonTshing-nTshong, ngama China & Japanese ke lawo kunye neentlanga ezikufutshane kuzo, iqhelekile into yokuthiya abantu ngeezandi abazenzayo xa bethetha njengamaQhakancu ligama ekichaza izandi abazisebenzisayo xa bethetha, OoQh nooNc, zezinye zeezandi ebezisetyenziswa zezontlanga, zaza zathiywa igama lazo ngezandi abazikhuphayo xa be thetha, omny’umzekelo: Zonke iintlanga eziphuma kumantla eAfrika kuthiwa ngamaKwereKwere, loonto ke, bathiywe ngeezandi abazikhuphayo xa bencokola okanye bethetha.

    Oo-Khoi-san ngamagama esilungu, OoChobona(from) Sawubona, ngamagama enziwe ngabelungu kuba belungiselela bona ukulibisa, nangoku bathi xa bebiza isiXhosa, bathi Khosa, inoba iyavakala ngoku iytiwa, ukuba amagama angoo: X, Q, no C kuthiwa sisiQhakhancu, ngawaphi amagama emvelo yesintu yolwimi lwethu thina esibizwa ukuba sizii-Bantu, Xhosas, Thembu, Mpondos, Bhaca kunye nesiMfegu, so iilwimi zethu ziye zaxubana ngenxa yokonganyelwa ziinkosi ezithile, kwanyanzeleka ukuba isizwe esithile sinyanzeleke siluthethe ololwimi lwenKosi yalo nokub iyteketa, yiloonto olulwimi sithi sisiXhosa, ayikabi lulo nacakasane, kuba alukho msulwa, qha luyingqokelela yeelwimi zeziwe-ngzizwe.

    Yiyo lonto kusithiwa izizwe zokuqala ukubonwa ngabelungu ngelixa befika kwelizwekazi laseTiyopiya, bahlangana nazo babesithi kukho iiKorana, neeBantu, kanti ezoBantu zikhona nase Central Africa, East Africa nase Cameroon to Southern Africa, kanti iBantu yintoni kanye, kuba abaThembu batsho ngenene ukuthi abangomaXhosa, namaMpondo, ngokunjalo, namaMfengu nawo, kodwa ethetha isiXhosa, ndivumeleni xa ndisithi abelungu basithiye amagama amaninzi angengowethu, nathi sathiyana kuba singakwazi ukubiza amanye amagama, Khawuve ukuba iintlanga ezimnyama zase Abbysinia(Ethiopia) ayizizo iiBantu, kodwa kuthiwa zii-Natives, kanti iBantu yintoni kanye kanye? Ndiyabuya isisu sigcwele Ntozakuthi….

    • Kaloku nto ka bawo oo Gatyeni babini, ukho lo ungu Ndondela ka Mamali kwaNgqika aze omnye abe kwa Zulu. Ngoko ke phum’egusheni sikwazi ukutyatyadula.

      • Kaloku Mngudi kwanda ukungakhathali ebantwini, aze atyeshelwa amasiko nezithethe. Abantu abakhoyo ngoku abasena ntloni nobuntu abusekho. Kudala umfana ubesithi xa athe wabona intombi waze wakholwa yiyo ube yibuza uba “ungowasemanini ke nzwakazi” engeka yi phimisi ( ukuyiqhasa) ukwenzela uba ingabi kanti ingu dade wabo. U Mngxongo no Maya ngabantwana be gazi ebukhosini base ba Thenjini. Kanti ke nama Ngxongo ayathathana ngoku,uye uve omnye esithi ndingu Mbomvu omnye athi ndingu Mnzaka abanye nga ma Qhamani abanye nga maMpofu. Ezi ziincuku ezenziwa ngabafazi abendi ke ukutsho abathi kusawufa amadoda kuloo mzi kusheke oonyana baqale ukuba hlohla u chuku lokuza hlula kwabanye. Yiyo ke lento yabangela ukuzalana uba kuphele ezizweni zika Ntu.

      It goes even further and states that before amaHlubi were known as amaNgele-ngele ngeli xesha uBhele eyinkosi. Inkos uBhele wabane ntombi entle egama elingu Hlubi, ubuhle bayo babudumile kanga ngokba isizwe sama Ngele-ngele saphela sisaziwa ngo Hlubi kusenjalo nanamhlanje.

    Andiyikholelwa leyokuba eligama lithi “Xhosa” lelesiThwa/Qhakancu.
    Babephi abelungu ngexesha likaXhosa kwaye yayingubani ke igama lakhe lokwenyani? Okwesithathu ukhona owayeke walitolikelwa ngesiQhakancu ukuveza ubunyani baloo nto?

    Ndize kumnombo kaTshawe. US’khoma uzalwa nguTshawe ze ke yena azale uNgcwangu. Kaloku uTshawe waya emaMpondweni wayofuna umkhosi wokumncedisa xa wayelelwa ubukhosi kuCirha waza wamoyisa encediswa ziingwevu zakwaRhudulu nezinokhokho onguS’khoma.
    Lilonke uTshawe wathiya unyana wakhe ngokhokho wezingwevu nekwathi zanconywa kusithiwa “ziyalwa ezangwevu” kwathiwa ngamaNgwevu ke.

    Ndize kuTshiwo noGando.
    Kaloku inkulu kaNgconde nguGando nowathi waphatha emveni kokutshaba kukayise. UTshiwo ayingonyana kaNgconde, wazalwa uNgconde eneminyaka emine waswelekayo. Ekukhuleni kwakhe wafuna ubukhosi naye, bala ooGando nabaninawa nhaphandle koMdange owayemthethela za kwakusithiwa makaywaywe, kulapho kwavela khona lento ka”Mdange kaTshiwo”.

    Wakwaywa ke uTshiwo kwaze kwathiwa uGando ngu”Mkwayi” kwavela esisiduko samaKwayi ke.

    Nanku ke umnombo kaTshawe ngqo…
    Nciba (watshona kumlambo iNciba waphuma sele iligqirha, wathiywa ngaye ke lomlambo)
    ⭐⭐ NB bafika abelungu lomlambo kuthiwa ngumlambo kaMkwayi bona balibiza wrongo bathi Kei.
    UNciba wazazala u..

    I found this read so informative and interesting,thank you.

    I feel I know more about my tribe and our clan names/origins etc.

  153. Thembisa says:

    I have a question though and if anyone can assist me, please feel free to comment.

    My surname is Jawula, apparently we are from Kenton On Sea (Port Alfred).. I often find myself being questioned by elders asking me where the surname “Jawula” comes from. See even though we are oDlamini oJama kaSjadu I don’t know where our surname comes from.

    Always been curious cause my family is the only ‘Jawula’ I know.

    Surnames may not be as important as clan names but am still curious.

  199. lwanda says:

    Aba bantu bangamaVundla bakhona nakubeSuthu kuthiwa ngooMofokeng. Imbali yomnombo nomlibo wabaFokeng ekuthiwa amaVundla aphuma kuwo uhamba uthi: Aba bantu baphuma kubaTaung bazalwa ngumzukulwana kaMotebele esingalazanga igama lakhe. Le ndlu ivele ngolu hlobo: uMorolong wazala uNoto waza uNoto wazala uMorara; uMorara kwindlu yakhe yokuqala wazala uMabi, waza kwindlu yesibini wazala uMasilo I. AbaTaung ke bazalwa kule ndlu yesibini kaMasilo I.
    UMasilo I wazala uMalope; uMalope ke yena wazala uMohurutse, kunye noKwena, noMkhatla. AbaTaung ke bona baphuma kule ndlu kaMohurutse unyana omkhulu kaMalope I. UMohurutse wazala uMotebele ononyana esingalaziyo igama lakhe kunye nesizukulwana esinye naso esingalaziyo igama laso.

    Lo mzukulwana kaMotebele wazala uLezani, yena owazala uGitjie kwindlu yokuqala noTlopo kwindlu yesibini. UGitje noTlopo bavelise izizukulwana ezibini ekuthiwa ngabaFokeng. Nantsi inzala kaGitje, wazala uSegungela; uSegungela wazala uMzale; uMzale wazala uJembe; uJembe wazala uGuanca; uGuanca wazala uBhayi; uBhayi wazala uNgopheni; uNgopheni wazala uNgobozi; uNgobozi wazala uTjale; uTjale wazala uStockoe; uStockoe wazala uVova; uVova wazala uMama. UTlopo yena nantsi inzala yakhe, wazala uMare; uMare wazala uNtsikoe; uNtsikoe wazala uSefiri; uSefiri wazala uKata; uKata wazala uMolise; uMolise wazala uNtahle; uNtahle wazala uSeephephe; uSeephephe wazala uMatete; uMatete wazala uSetha; uSetha wazala uBernard ophile kulaa minyaka yowe-1866.

    Aba bantu kuthiwa ngabeSuthu bakaMfukweni kodwa bathi bakwaywa ngabeSuthu bagxothwa baya kuwa kubaThembu, isizathu kungokuba inkosi yaba bantu yathi yazeka umThwakazi. Ngeso sizathu loo nto ayizange yamkelwe baze bagxothwa baya kungena kubaThembu. Abantwana baloo nkosi baphosaniswa nokulawula ngenxa yolu gxotho. Izilwanyana zamavundla ngumvundla nokhetshe. Kaloku kubeSuthu abantu besiduko ngasinye banesilwanyana okanye nantoni na esendalweni ababizwa ngayo.

    Aba bantu baphuma eLusuthu abanye bathabathe la mihlaba: eyaseKomani, eyaseNgqamakhwe nooTsomo neDutywa. Abanye baya kuwa eNgcobo emaQwathini. Abanye nabo eMount Frere. Aba bantu banezindlu ngezindlu.

    UNgculu, S.P. ubhala athi kwinqaku lo ‘Umthunywa’ lenyanga ka-Epreli ngowe-1961. “AmaVundle ayekhe ehla ngapha eLusuthu eza ngasemaXhoseni nasebaThenjini aya kumisa ngaseMthatha. Ingcwaba likaMkhupheni likwezoNtaba zoMbholompo. Kanti ke amanye amadoda obukhosi aphindela kwaseLesotho eMjanyana eQuthing, apho akhona ngoku. Ngesithuba awayelapha eMthatha kwehla intlekele yeMfazwe phakathi kwendlu enkulu kaVundle nokunene uNcilashe owaziwa nangokuba nguMvulane. Umlo wabo wenza ukuba baqhekekane kubekho amaVundle namaMvulane.”

    UNgculu uphinde ahambise athi kwakweli phephandaba ‘Umthunywa’: “UVundle uzele uBhayi inkulu, kunye noMvulane noMkhumbeni noMngqosini kwindlu enkulu, ibe nguJileka ekunene. KuBhayi ke kuphuma uSiqungele, ozala uSazana ozala uMacodoma ozala uMsali ozala uZembe.

    Kwakhona kukhona amasebe apha, kuba uZembe uzele uGwaca inkulu, noJalamba noMlu noNgcwele noNdwele; nakuGwaca kukho amasebe, kuba uzala uKhetshe wakuloFola noNtlangaza, noNgonyama. UKhetshe uzala uMadiba, ozala uMtsokoba ozala uMkhupheni ozala uGobozi, ozala uTyhali inkulu, noMatyobeni, noNkosana, noSomxu, noSidlayiya. Eqadini nguMvulane. UTyhali ke yena uzele uStokhwe, ozele uVova, ozele uMama kwindlu enkulu.

    UJackson, A.O. ubukhosi bamaVundle ubulanda ngolu hlobo: “UVundle uzala uSenzani; uSenzani uzala uMacodoma; uMacodoma uzala uMsali; uMsali uzala uGwaca; uGwaca uzala uKhetshe; uKhetshe uzala uMkhupheni; uMkhupheni uzala uNtsokoba; uNtsokoba uzala uGobhoza; uGobhoza uzala oonyana abathathu: UTyhali, uBhebheza, uMatyobeni.UTyhali uzala uSitokhwe; uSitokhwe uzala uVova (aba bantu bafumaneka eLusuthu). UBhebheza uzala uMavela; uMavela uzala uNtontolo; uNtontolo azale uSithubeni; uSithubeni azale uBhazabhaza (BaseHeshele). UMatyobeni uzala uKhala; uKhala uzala uZwelibanzi; uZwelibanzi uzala uSidumo (bakuQumbu).” Xa ke besiqhuba uphando sifumene ezinye zezindlu zamaVundle ezezi zilandelayo: AmaLowe; AmaNyosi; AmaKhumbeni; OomKhupheni; AmaNgculu; OoMqhwa; AmaNgqosini (nawo ayenye yezindlu zamaVundle ngokwemveli); OoKayise; AmaVundle akwaHegu; AmaVundle akwaSokhulu; AmaVundle akwaGqojana; AmaVundle akwaBhebheza; AmaVundle akwaMatyobeni, AmaVundle akwaKhetshe, AmaVundle akwaMona, AmaVundle akwaMacodoma, AmaVundle akwaDenge, AmaVundle akwaKrwebeda, namanye.

    Onke la maVundle angentla xa ebongwa kuthiwa: Singamabandla kaVundle, kaMsuthu, kaYebusi, kaMaboro, kaSuthu, kaMfukweni, kaBhayi, kaSiqungele, kaSezana, kaMsali, kaMacodoma, kaMadiba, Nto zikaGobhozi, Bhayi kaKhetshe kaGwaca, kaMlu, kaFola wakuloKhetshe, kaZembe lokugawula ubulawu bokuhlamba amaVundle, elingenakuphathwa ngumfazi onechanti, kuba uya kushwabana, Ngabakwatsili leenyosi elingenakuphakulwa ngamadoda athakathayo, Amadoda aneemfene nomamlambo, Kuba zakuwasuzel’iinyosi, Ade asuzelwe nangamagumasholo zona nyosi zingenalwamvila, Amabandla enyoka enkulu emnyama yomthombo womlambo omkhulu, Umlambo omkhulu ongawelwayo iGqili, Owelwa sithi maVundle, Siwele sinqumle umsinga sisinge eCamsholo, Kwihlathi elinameva amhlophe, Ihlathi elingangenwa ngamagqwirha, Kanti nezithunzela ziyaloyika, Gobhozi,

    Inkosi esiyifumeneyo yamaVundle nguMhlekazi uPresly M. Bebeza owayeyinkosi yamaVundle. Wayongamele inqila eshwankathela uBhebheza, iTele engezantsi, iTele engentla neRooiwal.
