Izithakazelo

Written by GML from the blog Who Are You?? on 11 Feb 2009
Favourite this post


I have always been interested in knowing where I come from. However my dad couldnt tell as he is not really interested in these kind of things. I asked him about Izithakazelo za kwaMsimang and he didnt know them.the only thing he knew was
Thabizolo Nonkosi- I also knew that so I guess he couldnt help.


( African Ipod)

We went away with friends this weekend and we found our selves at a Snake park- We saw a number of animals including a Lion. a friend was so happy and she started saying her family's praise song which was beautiful. She is married and no longer uses her maiden name. I was very impressed and asked her how she learned them. She simply said that her mother had taught them to her when she was young and told her not to forget them. She had to remind herself of them before she got married because her man's family were going to ask her to introduce herself.

So I went on a mission to at least know Izithakazelo zakithi especially seeing that I'm gonna be shedding the surname soon. I dont wanna be surprised when my new family asks me who I am and I find myself unable to answer.

So this is what I got.

Msimang

Thabizolo
Nonkosi
Mhlehlela
Nhlokozabafo
Sdindi Kasiphuki
Sihlula amadoda
Mphand`umnkenkenke
Mlotshwa...

Who are you? Awuzibike ukuthi wena kahle kahle ungubani.

Hhayi wethu Ms. Tebby,  save yourself the stress and focus on the side that you know. I also know my mom's side only but according to tradition there's nothing wrong with that since my parents were never married so I'm officially a Mgojo and nothing else. If your parents were married, then it could do you good to find out about your dad's side. That's if you want to.

@ Cody- Mpundu vele ngubeni,~~~~~~~~OMW andi!! ROTFLMO!!!!!!!!!! so i guess you guys have big bums – no man, this is figurative, and it means that we love sex soo much that we were caught in bed, naked, with one side of a bum out of dem blankets.

umfazi onamabele amade ancelisa umtwana engaphesheya komfula ~~~~~~~~ triple lol, i can just imagine you throwing your boob to the other side for your child to ncela!! sho!!!!!!! you guys have breasts – this is also figurative, it means that they are so generous and kind that they will help people as far away as from over seas, i.e (Zimbabwe), 

You cant enterpret these things literally Khodeyi. i.e
Bhukuxa umthondo uwujongise emntwini, doesn’t mean you must rape someone.

Tjo guys, I am so impressed. I thought we were all lost. My family is just lost I don't even know which clan I'm actually from, but we just speak Zulu. My Gran has a German father on my dad's side, and my grandfather was a portuguese from Mozambique. So I guess I am of Mozambiquen/ Portuguese descent. Angizazi and it feels so sad. I don't want to even try and explain my mom's side. Well our surname is Msimango and only God knows where they got that from. 

Cande you are not alone, clearly we are the minority here.

Mbubuzamabandla
Let me get this straight: UZola after finding out that he is also a Dlamini. Wavele wathola izithakazelo wahlanganisa wahlanganisa kwaphuma lento ayishoyo.
Thina The Cwazibe’s or Latha’s are not related to the Jama’s , and the says Jama kaSjadu do not add uMfaz'omabelemad’owancelis’umntwana ngaphesheya koMfula...and he also goes and say something like 'ndlove’zidl'ekhaya ngokweswel'abelusi'- this is from izithakazelo zabakwaNdlovu.
Let me also mention that izithakazelo were derived from the fore-fathers of that particular clan, their heroisms and cowardness and so on. Some of the things said in Izithakazelo are said IN FIGURES of SPEECH like “Ukudlumuntum’yengangendaba” which doesn’t mean eating a person but meaning something else.
Ukuthi “Mfaz'omabele mad’oncelis'umntwan'engaphesheya komfula”
it means that we are so kind and generous that they will help anyone not only people from our clan
kusho mina uNdukenhle, wakwaLatha, NginguNdukenhle ngoba indukenhle igawulwa ezizweni, ubaba walanda umama kude le eSwazini wazomganisa enyakatho nenhla yeNatali phani kweziNtaba Zondi-NoKhahlamba

I invited people to share their praise songs and fortunately or unfortunately the Dlamini's are popular and were able to share.

Others did not know theirs and couldnt share. It was not intentional to have more of the same surname.
