Umlando Wesibongo SakwaNtombela

Umlando wakwaNtombela Nezithakazelo zabo
Mahlobo!
Mpangazitha!
Nin’ enipheka ngembiz’ ende
Isibong’ esibi
Esingabizwa ngabalandakazi
Sisindi somtshiki
Nin’ enishay’ impukane ngesibhakela
Niyinqamul’ amathumbu
Nina bakwaMalandela
Nin’ enizal’ uZulu
Nina bakwaDambuza
Nina bakwaLuswazi
Dlukula!
Nzuza!
Sishosho sikaPhunga noMageba.
Umlando wabo
Abantu bakwaNtombela baphuma kuNtombela ongumnewabo kaMalandela bezalwa nguLuzumane kaMnguni. ULuzumane ubenamadodana amaningi kuwo kubalwa, uMcineka, uMchunu, uKhanyile, uMahaye nabanye abaningi. UNtombela ubekhonze umnewabo uMalandela ngoba nasemuva kokukhothama kukaMalandela nguNtombela obambele indodana yomfowabo. Leyo ndodana bekunguQwabe yena yedwa uQwabe wodumo emlandweni wakwaZulu.

Umuzi kaMalandela oDwini wawakhe eMandawe eMlalazi ngaseShowe, wabuye wayokwakha oNgoye. Nalapho ubehamba nomnawakhe uNtombela. Babuyile bezozinza eBabanango lapho uMalandela ekhothamele khona. UNtombela ubenamadodana amaningi, uMdlani, uMpangazitha, uMahlobo, noNtanzi. UMdlani uzale uDlomo ozale uDlukula yena wazala uZwana, uSobandli noThayiza. UZwana uzale uZiningo, uLukhwazi, uMagedla noMniza. Uziningo uzale uFaku obuse emuva kwakhe. Kungathi ke uFaku wayenokuganga ngoba ubengenqeni ukubiza noma wubani ambhucunge uma egeza ngoba ngelinye ilanga ubize enye yamakhosi akwaNgobese ukuba imbhucunge wagcina eseyisikele izwe.
