‘Khuzwayo’ simply means ‘the one who is always receiving warnings’, and one popular figure in South Africa who was a Khuzwayo was Helen Khuzwayo. The surname actually comes out of the Gumede surname. Khuzwayo was the son of Gumede and lived under the mentorship of his father until his adulthood. Khuzwayo was a troublemaker and he always received warnings and that is how he inherited the name Khuzwayo. After some time Gumede advised his son to become independent and establish a home of his own. Khuzwayo established the home and that home was a Khuzwayo home and that is how the Khuzwayo surname was born.
