uMgungundlovu: through the eyes of the izinceku


Descriptions of life at uMgungundlovu in the 1830s based on accounts by Lunguza kaMpukane, Thununu kaNonjiya, Ngidi kaMcikaziswa, and Sivivi kaMaqungo, recorded in the early 1900s by the amateur historian, James Stuart. Stuart published them in a school reader, uKulumetule, in 1925. In this podcast we listen to their descriptions of uMgungundlovu read from uKulumetule by Dr. Mbongiseni Buthelezi. The musical excerpts are from Thokozani Mhlambi’s “Ukudibana kwezimpondo” (The meeting of the tusks). The podcast was directed and produced by Dan Corder.
