the original nguni version:
the mistake we make is to try and ally our nguni forefathers and nation to less and insignificant nations. i am not here to put any kingdom/clan/nation down but to set the record start because in isizulu we say "yigwala kuphela elosaba uzazisa ngobuyena nomuzi nesizwe sakubo"! the ndwandwe kingdom is today incorporated in the zulu kingdom due to umfecane wars. this is an nguni kindom "not hlubi" that had a father called nxumalo. the linage goes as bellow.
nkosi sikhunyana kazwide [1790's - ca 1830
nabusa izizwe zayifakazela pasi koxaba
nina nodwa enahlula ukhumalo empini
mthiyane omuhle owafakazela ubuntu bake kwanguni
bayede nxumalo/bayede xaba, bayede zwide!
the split of the ndwandwe came when they got defeated by shaka zulu who at that time was holding as the mtethwa king. the ndwandwe lost at the battle of battle of gqokli hill was conducted in 1818 and that's when the nxumal's and they allies either ran ro other countries or to other part of south africa. the allies that where under zwide kalanga where soshagaane nxumalo, zwangedaba, and nxaba who all scatted to other countries after the defeat of zwide. today the nxumalo clan is found in zimbabwe, mozambique "look up the word called gaza", malawi, tanzania and zambia
