Mangcingci Maphumulo

The Maphumulo clan is an influential South African family and one of the biggest and most powerful clans in Africa. While most members reside within South Africa itself, this clan can also be found worldwide. As part of colonisation processes, Maphumulo people were exposed to western culture and religion and quickly adopted it into their lives; indeed they were one of the first tribes to adopt Christianity while developing written languages as early as 1928!

Historely, the Maphumulo tribe resided in the middle northern portion of Nguniland near uThukela and Nonoti rivers at what later became the town of Maphumulo; Isilevane now being known as Dukuza (Stanger). They lived close to Shaka ka Senzakhona’s residence – not too far away at that point from where Dukuza (Stanger) came to exist at that time.

According to history records, after King Mashimane Maphumulo died, the traditional leadership of his tribe was suspended and later reinstated by Dingabakubo and Xamu Maphumulo.

Makhanya chief was eager for Adams College to get established at Umbumbulu so native people could receive Christian education. The school opened in 1941 as the pioneer of its kind in Africa, including trading store, police station and magistrate’s court facilities.

Dingabakubo Maphumulo

There is an issue within the Maphumulo tribe where traditional leadership has been subjugated, which requires delicate handling. People in this tribe are now fighting to regain their heritage and it is vital they assert their rights. I wish all those involved with the Maphumulo tribe good luck in their future endeavours and may the god of their ancestors grant them strength, courage and protection as they fight back for what rightfully belongs to them.

Remind yourself that traditional leaders are not appointed or elected but are instead inherited from senior royal families. Therefore, once identified, their rightful heir should be recognized by government structures before this matter is gazetted and made public knowledge.

Mashimane Maphumulo Kraal existed long before American Board Missionaries came to Adams Mission Reserve, serving as home for Mthimkhulu Maphumulo of Adams Mission Reserve’s aCele tribe, who fought hard for indigenous cultural preservation while resisting attempts by Shaka to control his tribesmen.

Mthimkhulu was the father of Dingabakubo Maphumulo who died three years ago at 98. A very traditional person, Mthimkhulu never wanted to leave Adams Mission Reserve where he died at home, leaving behind many descendants still living there today.

Mashimane Maphumulo

The Maphumulo surname is relatively widespread across Africa, particularly South Africa. The Maphumulo clan’s roots can be traced to southern parts of Africa where many members are closely affiliated with Msane Tribe royal lineage; many members have strong connections with Msane for its history in defending traditional issues and fighting for indigenous people’s rights, which serves as motivation for political activism by Mashimane clan members.

Dibandlela, an ancestor of the Mashimane clan, was an influential leader in KwaZulu-Natal province’s Zululand region. A warrior and one of Zululand’s greatest heroes, Dibandlela left behind an indelible mark upon this noble family’s future. Born in Mthimkhulu village and dying aged 66 at northern Zululand location Sinqumeni; Dibandlela was interred there after burial.

Mashimane was Dibandlela’s fourth son and was known for ruling the area between uThukela and Nonoti Rivers. Additionally, he built a kraal near Umhlathuze River where Shaka’s warriors could rest after battle had finished. Additionally, Mashimane had five wives and numerous children.

Mashimane was an outspoken supporter of Makhanya tribespeople, resisting attempts by Newton Adams to convert them to Christianity and Western ways. Additionally, he served as both mediator and negotiator. Believing his tribe had been marginalised in national politics, Mashimane campaigned tirelessly on its behalf in pursuit of protecting its traditional rights and fighting to maintain them through national politics.

Mseleku Maphumulo

Mseleku Maphumulo Clan is one of the oldest clans in Umbumbulu Magistrate District. While previously active, they have not been as involved with governing their traditional territories due to many members migrating away to urban centers without practicing their culture anymore. Now is an ideal opportunity for this tribe to regain its former glory by revitalizing their authority and serving the interests of its people more actively than before.

This surname can be found across South Africa, particularly KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng where 83 percent of people carry this surname. Furthermore, 8 percent of population in Britain also bear it and 2 percent in Namibia/Lesotho respectively.

Newton Adams found himself unpopular when he arrived at Amanzimtoti Mission Reserve. Native people held firm to their traditional ways of living and were unwilling to adopt Christian religion and Western practices; as a result, Adams was unable to convert them and they lost tribal authority as a result.

Msane Msane hails from a royal background and currently works on traditional issues for his tribe. Through the establishment of Msane Tribe Heritage Trust, his efforts serve to continue King Nxaba Ka Mbhekane Msane’s legacy.
