    We have been informed that ooNuba, Khweli, Civashe, Jukuca, Ntshuca are Bhaca. Do you perhaps have a clearer understanding of where the Nuba clan fit into the Bhaca people?

    The Nuba people have also been linked to the Nuba people from Sudan. Apparently, they came with the King of Amampondo as the fighters and cattle herders. Do you perhaps have knowledge of this?

    Great stuff brother, I would want to have a word with you. I’m currently doing my Masters Degree in Linguistics and my focus on contact dialects in the case of the Bhaca language.

    firstly id like to add that the bhaca pepole are not under the xhosa’s or the zulus isbhaca or the bhaca culture is a mixture of zulu, xhosa and isiswati. the swati influence comes from king ncaphayi’s wife who is decendant from abalambo from my question or request is to find out where the chiliza people fit in

    The fact of the matter is that there is no written history about all this stuff. Therefore we can only rely on oral tradition. From what I have heard from my elders so for, i find this information very disjointed, manufactured and completely inaccurate, its comical. And please stop making Ncapayi greater than he was. Lies. Ncapayi went there because he needed protection from Faku. He actually claimed that his father (Madzikane) had endorsed Bhacas merging with Faku. There is no evidence that Madzikane wanted that. Long story short, Ncapayi’s sabbatical to Pondoland didt last long, as him and Faku had a fall-out which led to his death there. When he died eMampondweni and guess who led amaBhaca aseMbondzeni in his absence? Real Bhaca warriors, the Mjolis, Chiyas, Siwelas and so forth. Once Faku realised that Ncapayi was dead, he attacked Mount Frere. But the warriorsI mentioned defended the Bhaca nation. Its the battle of Nophoyi I’m talking about here. All in all, Faku weakened the Bhaca nation and for a long time after his death it had no leader. These chiefs/warriors I mentioned above (Wushe/Mjoli, Chiya, Siwela ) held it together. One more thing, there was no battle eNtsizwa between Shaka and Madzikane, Shaka’s army died as a result of the snowfall. So people must stop manufacturing or re-writing history here to suit their narrative. I fully agree with the person who commented above here about the importance of remembering that we are Zelemus, rather than Bhacas. That’s what I was told too while growing up.
