Umlando wabantu bako Sibanda, they trace their history back to Tswana / Sotho ethnic group particularly Bataung tribe who occupied the Vaal river in the 18th century, later on King Mzilikazi and his people arrived in the Vaal river area and settled with the Bataung who subsequently became part of his people hence some of the Bataung clan names were mispronounced see the example below.
Tswana/ Sotho – Ndebele
Sebata – Sibanda
Tau Tona – Dawu Duna
Motaung – Mdawini
Umhlathi ongahlulwa yithambo
Isilo esadla safohloza okuseleyo sanyathela ngezinyawo.
Bhonga besabe Isilo esaswela amabala sayobikwa enkosini, inkosi yathi le
mayiyekwe ingena mabala ngoba ingonyama.
Jamela ngokujama phambi kwenkosi
