Chief Ndengezi kaKhuzwayo Mdlalose
Ntuzwa kaNhlaka brother of chief Sekethwayo of the Mdlalose and one of the king Cetshwayo’s izinduna,accompanied the army to act as the king’s eyes and so to report both on the performance of the battle.
Nhlka Mdlalose was appointed by the king to establish the Zulu influence in the north western districts during the wars unification.Later on his son Sekethwayo succeded him then later became aprominent isikhulu to both kings Mpande and Cetshwayo.During the invasion of kwaZulu by Britain in 1879 Sekethwayo bravely fought for the kingdom.He continued the fight even after the kig was captured by the British.However he dibanded his army after he received an order through Maphelu,the king’s trusted who was in hiding with him at the Ngome Forest including Mahubulwana who was induna of abaQulusi.In 1880’s Sekethwayo was one amongst the prominent Zulu men who advocated the return of their exiled king from Cape Town.
Sekethwayo kaNhlaka (1814-1883) enrolled in the imVokwe ibutho,Sekethwayo was inkosi of the Mdlalose people and ishukhulu (hereditary chief). He was a member of king Cetshwayo kaSenzangakhona ibandla (council) and was a leading advocate in 1878 of negotiating with the British to avoid war.During the Aglo-Zulu war he made it known to Brevet Colonel,Henry Evelyn Wood that he wished to submit but Cetshwayo sent a force into his territory in mid-Junuary 1879 to ensure he did not.Sekethwayo and the Mdlalose rmained uncommited to the war and he surrendered in August to Baker Russell’s colomn.In the first partation of Zululand,he was appointed one of the 13 chiefs but remained loyal to king Cetshwayo and was active in appealing for his restoration.
The appointed amakhosi in the Nqutu District.
In 1896 the Natal Colonial Government the Mdlalose an indipendent isizwe,along the line of British inderect rule,a section of abakwaMdlalose isizwe in the Nqutu division was given an independent status.In 1896 they were placed under the leadership of Mpiyakhe Mdlalose it should be noted that the main section of this isizwe was resident in the Vryheid district.Isizwe sakwaMdlalose was a well respected one in the kingdom of kwaZulu.They rose to power during king Shaka’s rule in 1896 they were given a separated area and assigned an independent ubukhosi by 1903 they had grown into 986 izindlu.
I like it it is good. Allow me to futher add. “That Chief Sekethwayo was leading and comanding the Ibutho(batallion) called uThulwane during the battle of Sandlwane, He was the comander in chief on the other side of the Battle of Hlobane, together with Ntuzwa kaNhlaka Mdlalose. On 28th March 1879 the people who were hiding in the caves of Ngenetsheni reported that wen the English soldires met the Chief Sekethwayo together with his Ibutho, people sad they had guns and cannons of the English batalions of which people of Ngenetsheni they later heard the clanging of spears and the galloping of horses” this means that the English soldiers ran away with their horses, while history records differently. Inkosi USekethwayo: “Inkuzi abahlabe ophondweni ngaphondoni kwandolelisa,Umyayiza ovele ngasotshanini, Umkhonyo’vikelwa isibili,Umuthi owamila enkomeni, Uqhuphazi wenkwambasi, Obulala engenandaba namnje engenandaba, Umkonto ovikelwa isibili” bengithi nje nqmpu eqhqweni lakithi elizalwa uNhlaka “Ubhudukowisayo engawi ngaphutha ewa ngambomi, usakhamizi ngemikhonto, Umanxeba zinxuluma, Umbambho zinezimfa, Umkhonto uthengwa ngambuzan’ekhayakonina, Uhlabathi zemfule’mkhulu. Inkosi USekethwayo wanemizi (izindlu) ezazinamafama azo ezilapha ko 12
It must be not that the Daugher of Ntuzwa was married to ENdlukulu kaZulu the Mother of King Solomoni KaDinuzulu was called as Mama uKaNtuzwa , and the Daughter of King Dinizulu got married to kwaMdlalose and married to Mthiyabantu Mdlalose from Emadakwa home the grandson of Mgulugulu the brother of Sekethwayo
It is worth knowing that King Cetshwayo his principal wife was Nompaka Mdlalose the daughter of Chief Sekethwayo Mdlalose of which she was known as uSixipe and she was the mother of Princess Beyisile the Daugher of King Cetshwayo.
It must be noted that Mgulugulu Ka Nhlaka (Uqomode olumashiyashiya olikubheka engathi lizokwakhela umuzi) was married to more than 30 wives and His son Masabalala Onjengelanga Udi…lizumpotsho wendoda kwaMadlakazi was having at least 18 wives izindlu were many for his wives I will write indlu nenkosana yayo izindlu are as follows 1. KwaNtombazi uSHumba 2.Emadakwa Mthiyabantu,3 Emabonakuqala Undukuhloshiwe, 4. Ebhekiminqa uGundabesuthu,5.Imbidlimbidli uMxhosheni,6 kwaHlekofileyo Ubadubedube,7.Emabhekeshiya uMbebeza, 8. Emnyameni uMaqotha and indlu yase Empumelelo. the corrections will be done in due cause if there are othe izindlu that are omited. amanyanda asiphilise asilethele nezinhlanhla
