  25. i woulf like to know about the history of o Masango. they are also ama bhaca. wherevdid they originate and how did they become Masango

  26. The words “Bhaca,Mbuka,Vaka,Kaffer,Kwerekwere ect” r all disrespecting,undermining,discriminating and insulting words dt one should not b called n identified by dem or take pride in dem,awacati ubuve bomuntfu bt r Jst names of looking down on others,Madzikane is a Swati name coz translated in Zulu is Madikane. Gobiswano choice 2 call himself in a Swati name n h ws fluent in Swati n dance isiSwati. Itibongo take tibhalwe ngesiswati hhayi isizulu or Xhosa, he ws a Swati leader in south Africa n dt all dt wer under him spoke his language n referred 2 as Swatis. Zulus r pipul who wer under da reign of Shaka Zulu coz b 4 Shaka all clans wer nations on their own n dt Shaka wld force people 2 submit 2 hm so dt h cn rule dem. It’s either u handed over yo self peacefully 2 hm,widout going 2 war wid him coz others wer hs subjects thru war wen h conquered them.Madzikane ws neva conquered by Shaka n so Madzikane n hs pipul r nt Zulus,secondly all pipul who r regarded as Xhosas.xhosas r down who wer under Tshawe in Mpondimise n all down who came 2 xhosa land n adopted isiXhosa language,culture,heritage”clothing” as theirs ie Mpondos,Xesibes of Jojo Mount Aylief,Thembus Dalindyebos,Dlomos,Madibas,Ngubegcukas,Mfengus who came from kwa Zulu,Bheles,Hlubis,Suthus ect except Swati pipul under Madzikane.coz wen Madzikane attacked Thembus of Ngubegcukas n overcome dem,dey went to report 2 king Hintsa of Galena praise name king of Xhosa by ethicity n all down dt wer under him n dey plated 2 Madzikane @ Gqutyini in Ngcobo 2 geda wid amaQwathi izinkomo zika Xesibe who also wer Xhosas.xhosas under abaThembu,afyer da death of Madzikane da Swati of South Africa under Madzikane wer nt under Xhosas.xhosas bt stayed on deya land Mount fre wid Swati names such as eLundzini”Ncunteni” eBondzeni,eMabhobho,eLuyengweni,uMganu mountain,Xopo, Mzimkhulu”Mtimkhulu”, Mzimvubu river “Mzimvubu river,Kokstud ect.Madzikane ws nt independent bt h ws interdependent of da Swati royal family of Mlambi who gave him their best izinyanga who made traditional medicine 4. Madzikane 2 pursue the Swati kingdom in South Africa under hs leadership.isiswati in Madzikane’s places ws killed by da nw government of Mandela who forced Madzikane’s pipul 2 abondone their language n learn isiXhosa wid a plan to take da glory of saying Madzikane’s pipul “swatis” r under Xhosas.xhosas so as 2 say dt Xhosas.xhosas deafited Zulus while it is nt lyk dat. Da leaders who lead in Mt fr n Mzimkhulu wer nt confident n brave enaf 2 stand their ground n say “we wl retain language of our mighty forefather n king Madzikane dt he spoke “isiswati” in our places bt gave up n accepted dis insulting n disrespecting word dt ws uttered by Anadarko black man to anada Shaka Zulu by dt tym.madzikane hs been robed n rip of his national identity “swati” thru hs pipul who r bewildered n confused as 2 wh ethnic group they r.finanally Gobiswano Zelemu by clan name n Gobiswano ka Khalimeshe,Madzikane ka Wabane owadzikadzika itive tabe Nguni called himself Madzikane ka Zulu by retaliating to Shaka’s insult of calling him iBhaca,he never said dt h is Zulu or under Zulu bt h said dis to disrespect n infuriate Shaka Zulu by using Shaka’s clan name n da name of da nation dt Shaka ws building.Shaka became furious n felt disrespected by dis man who calls himself Zulu while he is not under hm da name holder as surname n nation or ethnic name n send troops to kill Madzikane n hs pipul under him n Shaka failled.many clans nw r Zulus bt dey wer nt Zulus biologically n by birth bt dt dey wer under Shaka den dey whould call demselvs Zulus n dt made Shaka happy n proud,same goes to xhosas.So my question is ws Madzikane under Shaka Zulu or Hintsa of da Gcaleka Xhosa nation? Da unswerving is no Madzikane reign independently from dis two bt ws interdependent of Swatis of Mlambi clan,in other words h respected n listen to amaLambo n dt Mlambos dd nt hail Gobiswano”madzikane” bt Madzikane ws humble to dem. Da records of 1973 in Swaziland shows da isiswati/Bhaca dance performed in Swaziland which shows dt dis pipul r Swatis or under Swatis.da sucurcism n insanity n confusion of my kings pipul mst come to end end,”i don’t fear any man bt I fear only God coz man r made of flesh n dey all perish ” Ungangibiti nge Bhaca,Mbuka,Vaka,Kafer ect angel eligible ku Satan a ngibite udzodzi mine,angisiwo amakaka muntfu ndzini” thank u 4 go attention
