My Father’s Side
My father was born by Mlungu Nokufika Mkhize who worked in a farm called Matendane and she met my grandfather and they have children my father and aunt. My grandmother was from a royal family in Mophela becuase her father Gubhu Mkhize was the brother of the late chief. My grandfather was Gingitshe Majola and he worked at a forest called Nkolongo and Skhindi. My grandfather had lots of children because he had five wives and 26 children as well as 72 grandchildren and 36 great grandchildren.
According to our knowledge as a Mkhize family we know that our surname was named by Shaka the king who was ruling at that time. And he named this surname because there were people who came in his kingdom in a drizzle day which we say ukukhiza in Zulu and they were from DRC and he said that these people they will be named as the Mkhize’s because he could not hear their language that they were speaking that how my surname started.
