The Maphumulo Clan

Adams Mission Reserve’s history dates back to when this clan first settled near the Amanzimtoti River on its western bank, with their traditional household kraals and indunas (kings).

They were peacemakers and negotiators, ready to engage in dialogues and negotiations between tribes. Thanks to their friendly natures and humble disposition, they managed to gain friendship with almost everyone around them.

Tradition held that one did not pay money in order to live in certain locations; rather they paid a tribute known as Ukkhonza which usually consisted of goats; or, in its absence, small amounts of money would be donated instead.

Dr Newton Adams arrived with a group of Makhanya tribe people in 1847, and leaders of Maphumulo requested that he come closer. Unfortunately for them, this attempt to obtain their land back proved futile; and they were forced to move to Adams mission reserve instead.

The Mseleku Clan

The Mseleku clan has won over audiences with their reality show Izingane zeS’thembu on Mzansi Magic. Well known for their lavish lifestyle, this family is constantly showing that love and unity are at the core of happy living – recently celebrating a gender reveal party for their second child, further showing this.

Musa Mseleku and his four wives have managed to find an unconventional balance in life between work, family, and personal responsibilities. Their faithful support for Musa has gained the public’s interest as their unique way of living has gained much public scrutiny.

Macele, Mayeni, MaKhumalo and MaNgwabe all play important roles within the Mseleku household and each possess distinct characters that add depth and dimension to their collective identities. Together they work hard to ensure everything runs smoothly as part of this dynamic quartet.

Mseleku has an inquisitive mind and many passions. Music is his forte, and he is well-known for his vocal abilities and musicianship. He has released various albums such as Celebration, Meditations and Timelessness and is heavily influenced by religious ideologies like those taught by Parhamhansa Yogananda or swaminarayan mantras (words believed to help relieve devotees from karma-boundages). Additionally, he’s an avid traveler having visited many parts of the globe.

The Ndabezitha Clan

The Ndabezitha clan of warriors are known for their use of beetles as totems, providing insight into beetle world while providing clarity about any issues they encounter.

They believe that seeing an owl frequently visiting one’s homestead is an omen of good luck and fortune; should an owl appear more than once, consulting their sangoma should provide insight as to its meaning.

Ndabezitha are known for being extremely adept hunters, capturing elephants and lions with spears while killing powerful warriors during Zulu war. At the 1913 SANNC Conference in Port-Shepstone they also campaigned against Lord Gladstone’s Native Land Act; Ndabezitha being one of their representatives to lobby him against signing it without first hearing African perspectives first. Their influence can still be felt today and they fondly remember him today – after they died on 8 February 1958 they were laid to rest within their local bush cemetery plot at American Board Mission Station Church yard Port-Shepstone Church Yard by family and Friends who knew they would visit regularly over decades to this place of rest!

The Dlamini Clan

The Dlamini clan emerged during a time of great unrest in Southeast Africa. A number of competing clan groupings were competing for supremacy over their new homelands and this caused friction within the Dlamini who worked to establish themselves by assimilating other clans they encountered and forging bonds to form new political groupings.

This clan can be traced back to Dlamini I, also known as Matalatala. He is believed to have traveled with other Bantu people during their expansion. Today, members of this clan can be found among all ethnic groups from South Africa’s Nguni branch including Xhosa, Zulu and Swazi (formerly Swaziland).

Researching your family history can reveal much about where your ancestors came from and their lifestyles, which you may find by poring through various historical records like birth certificates, death records and immigration data. Such records provide a glimpse into their lives that is both informative and captivating.

As in other African tribes, the Ndlovu tribe honors an elephant totem as its name is derived from “ndlovu,” meaning elephant. Alongside this reverence for their elephant-totem symbol, members of this Ndlovu clan take pride in their wrestling abilities as well as performing clan praises referred to as izithakazelo.
