Izithakazelo

Madonsela!

Lubambo lunye
Zingaba zimbili zifuz’ekhabonina,
Masango makhulu nawabantu kunawezinkomo,
Nina bakwaMalambule
Okwath’ uMalambule ebanga noMswati nathi “Malambule phambili”,
Mgwadla emabhudle,
AbakwaSishosho
Abadina abakhathelele
Abazindlu nezindlwana,
OMngayi ohlala ngaphansi
Kwesihlahla somhlonhlo.
Imvelaphi yabantu bakwaKunene
Inkomba yokudabuka kwabo isho eSwazini. Khona laphaya eSwazini baphuma kuMalambule owayebuye abizwe ngoMngayi. Yena ke uMalambule wabe engumnewabo weNkosi uMswati owayezalwa endlini enkulu yakwaDlamini neyaziwa ngokuthi ngeyakwaKunene.
Inkosi uMswati wayezalwa eNdlunkulu eyabe yaziwa ngokuthi iLilangeni. UMalambule nguyena owabe ebambele umnawakhe uMswati isihlalo sobukhosi. Ngesikhathi uMswati esekhulile esefuna ukuhlala esihlalweni sakhe, uMalambule wabe engasafuni ukusuka base beyaxabana, bagcine ngokulwa kubangwa isihlalo kodwa uMalambule wehlulwa.

Inkosana yakhe uMalambule okwabe kunguSigweje yasinda kuleyompi, yashushumbiswa ngesilulu isiphuma eSwazini ngoba phela ukuba yatholakala ngabe yabulawa nayo. Wabaleka uSigweje nabantu bakhe baze bayofika kwelaKwaZulu. Bathi befika kwelaKwaZulu bekhuleka bathi, “Nina beKunene kwelive Mthimkhulu.”

Badlula behlisa izwe baze bayozinza enhla noMsunduzi lapho sekunabantu bakwaZondi endaweni ekuthiwa ikwaMpumuza.

  6. not all of this is true, we are not of the house of Dlamini or Mswati for that matter. Also u must mention how we relate to Mbabani (a city in swaziland is named after him ) he is a madonsela

  7. There are mistakes in this history.
    The Kunene Mgoza clan can be traced by my family to Mqedi who lived around the time of King Shaka
    I am the descendent of Mqedi. He had a sons from his two wives and one of the sons was Nqodovu and he had a son Masobontshi my grandfather who was born in 1900 and had 7 children.

    So the story above about the Mgoza clan aligned to Sigweje is not supported by the time lines. It also does not explain why the Surname is still a big Surname in Swaziland when it was supposedly started by people who ran away and they were given this Surname in KZN.

    I think you need to rewrite this story with better research.
