AbakwaNtshangase .

……………………..

Abantu bakwaNtshangase kanye nabakwaBiyela bavela emzini wenkosi uNdaba indodana kaMageba kaZulu kaMalandela kaLuzumane kaMnguni kaGumede. BangaMantungwa Nguni, njengabo abantu bakwaZulu(isibongo). UNdaba wayenemizi yakhe eminingi, kodwa ngemibili eyagqama kakhulu. Owokuqala kuseMqekwini. Lona kwakuyiwona muzi omkhulu. Yilapho kwavela khona inkosi uJama(uyise kaSenzangakhona owazala iLembe) nabafowabo oNkwelo noMhana ababebalulekile embusweni wakhe uJama kaNdaba.

Umuzi wesibili kwakuseGazini. Ukuze kuthiwe kuseGazini kulo muzi yingoba yiwona okwakuthi uma kunemincimbi yakomkhulu kuhlatshwe khona. Ngakho kwakungumuzi obaluleke kakhulu esizweni sonke senkosi uNdaba. Lapha eMqekwini kwakukhona uShankweni umfowabo kaXhoko kanye noMgutshwa nabanye.
Kwavela esikhulu isigemegeme ngesikhathi abantwana baseMqekweni sebefuna ukuganwa ngabantwana baseGazini. Abakuthandanga abaseGazini lokhu ngoba bethi laba ngabafowabo. Ngenxa yokuphikelela kwalaba baseMqekwini laba abaseGazini baze bashintsha kungentando yabo kwase kuthiwa bangabaseMgazini. Kwaqhutshekwa nokuganana kwezingane, kodwa abaseMgazini noma sebebizwa kanjalo abakubusisanga lokhu kuganana. AbaseMgazini babiyela umuzi wakubo ngesinqalanqala sothango ukuze kungenzeki lokhu abangakufuni. Base bebhinqwa kuthiwa babiyela umuzi, base bethola isibongo sakwaBiyela.
