Abantu bakwaMasuku kusengabantu bakwaNdwandwe. Abantu bakwaNdwandwe badabuka ngasezintabeni amaGudu.Lezi yizintatshana ezengamele umfula uPhongolo.Ngakho-ke kusashiwo uma kukhulekwa kwaNdwandwe, kwaNxumalo kumbe kwaMasuku kuthiwe ”Ndwandwe waseGudu”noma kuthiwe nina base’Gudunkomo’.iNdlu yaseKhohlo yaMaNdwandwe nokuyindlu yakwaNxumalo yona yazinza ngasentatshaneni iTshaneni enyakatho yomfula uMkhuze nalapho sekulidolobha laseMkhuze khona namuhla.
Indlunkulu yamaNdwandwe yona-ke yakha eMaGudu,iKhohlo lona lakha ngaseTshaneni. Ngakho-ke amathuna okhokho bakwaNdwandwe asemaGudu kuthi awokhokho bakwaNxumalo wona abengaseTshaneni. Abelungu sebaze bakhe iHhotela okuthiwa yiNtaba yeSipoki(Ghost Mountain),ngoba abazukulu bakwaNxumalo kwathi sebakhe kwaGasa(Gazankulu)babuya bezokhuluma nokhokho babo emathuneni ngaseTshaneni.Kodwa-ke abengwadi basebenzisa leli gama ukuheha izivakashi nokusebenzela nje imali.
AbakwaNxumalo babefike noSoshangane kwaGasa(eMozambikwe). Kwathi ngemuva kokunqotshwa kwenkosi uZwide inqotshwa yiLembe uSoshangane waphikelela enyakatho wafika wakha isigodlo sakhe sakwaGasankulu(Gazankulu nomaGazaland) asiqamba ngegama likakhokho wakhe uGasa kaManukuza kaLanga wokuqala.
ENdlunkulu yakwaNdwandwe kwaphuma enye ingxenye eyagcina ibizwe ngabakwaMasuku. Lokhu kwenzeka kanje:Inkosi yakwaNdwandwe uLanga (wokuqala) yakhipha izwi kunomsebenzi.
Le ngxenye yona yapheka ukudla ebusuku yadla yaqeda ukudla iphikisana nesinqumo senkosi. Kwathi uma kuzwakala enkosini ukuthi kukhona abaphikisane nezwi lenkosi lokuthi kungaphekwa,inkosi yakhipha izwi lokuthi kuhle bahambe emzini wakwaNdwandwe,baba ngabakwaMasuku ngokuoheka kwabo ebusuku.
Ngakho-ke ngesikhathi sokubusa kwenkosi uZwide kaLanga isibongo sakwaMasuku sasezivele sesikhona. Iningi labantu bakwaMasuku lahamba nenkosi uMzilikazi, inkosi yakwaSokhumalo.

AMAQHAWE AKWAMASUKU:

Mabili abaqhawe esibongweni sakwaMasuku. Elokuqala nguMadlenya Masuku owabe engumngane omkhulu weqhawe labeNtungwa uMzilikazi kaMashobane. UMadlenya waba ngomunye wezinsizwa ezaqokwa yiLembe ukuba ziyihlasela abeSuthu bakaHanesi.
Lokho kwakuyisu leLembe lokuyobulalisa uMzilikazi ngabeSuthu bakaHanesi ababakhe eNtabazwe(Harrismith).Ngaleso sikhathi uMadlenya kanye nezinye izinsizwa babe sebekade magcina ukulwa izimpi. Lezo zinsizwa uMzilikazi waziqamba igama elithi ‘iMbozisamahlanga’. Wanqotshwa uHanesi kuleyompi, zadliwa izinkomo zakhe.
Kwathi uma kugqabuka igoda phakathi kukaShaka noMzilikazi uMadlenya ukuba ngasohlangothini lukaMzilikazi. UZulu uhlasela amaNtungwa izikhawu ezimbili nje uMadlenya wayelwa ngasohlangothini lwamaNtungwa. Engani uMzilikazi wayezalwa yintombi yakhona kwaNdwandwe uNompethu. UMadlenya wasala empini yaseNtumbane nokuyimpi yesibili amaNtungwa ayilwa noZulu.
UMadlenya wazala uMbiko kaMadlenya owagina eseganwe yindodakazi kaMzilikazi uZinkabi. UMbiko kuthiwa wabe eyinkunzi yeqhawe. Wayehola ibutho elalaziwa ngokuthi ‘uZwangendaba’. Leli butho lagqama kakhulu ngenkathi linqoba amabhunu kaNdaleka Hendrick Potrigieter. Ngemuva kwaleyo mpi uMzilikazi waklomelisa uMbiko ngokumganisela uZinkabi.
Kwabuye kwaqubuka impi yomndeni esizweni sikaMzilikazi ngemuva kokukhothama kwakhe uMzilikazi. Kwathi ngemuva kukukhotha kweSilo uMzilikazi undunankulu wezwe uMncumbatha kanye nezinye izikhulu zombuso kaMzilikazi zaqoka uLobhengula nowayengeyona indlalifa ukuba athabathe izintabo. Inkosana kaMzilikazi kwabe kunguNkulumana owayesadingisiwe ngenkathi kukhotha uyise .uNkulumana wayelamana noZinkabi emhlane.
Kuthiwa ukubekwa kukaLobhengula kwamthukuthelisa kakhulu uMbiko wagcina ngokuphaka impi. Yadumelana-ke ekaMbiko nekaLobhengula kodwa ngeshwa wanqotshwa uMbiko, wafa ebulawa nguDliso kaMkhithika iqhawe likaLobhengula. Leyo mpi yalwelwa endaweni yakwaBulawayo eZimbabwe emfudlaneni owagcina oqanjwe ngayo leyompi kwathiwa umfula INgazini.Kuthiwa ngemva kwempi izinkubela zageza amanxeba azo kuwo lowo mfula.
Ngakho-ke amanzi ashintsha umbala, ngoba ayesexhubene negazi leZinkubela.Inkubela umuntu osinde empini.
