This is a real photo of Queen Lozikeyi ‘Umfazi Otshayindoda’ the last Queen of the amaNdebele people.

The dating of the photo although unknown is estimated to be around between the year 1840 and 1855, a few years after the amaNdebele people had crossed the Limpopo river and had firmly settled in present day Matabeleland.

Queen Lozikeyi ‘Umfazi Otshayindoda will be played by Precious Makhulumo in the upcoming production of “Inyelane” by the Amakhosi Cultural Centre in Bulawayo.

    Ama****** will shonalize her n say she is a shona abducted by Ndebeles when they arrived in their territory.Editor did they cross Limpopo or Botswana to send shivers down the spine of abetshabi

    This photo is living proof that the amaNdebele people did not wear the useless bushman clothes that the Shonas wore. The amaNdebele were invetors of designer wear, even the Boers were shocked to see how blakc people had fabric civilisation superior to many European cultures. Had it not been for that missionary who helped the imperialist Cecil John Rhodes, the amaNdebele would have made present day Zimbabwe a unique switzerland of Africa, but alas, see the result of interference of the British who handed over to that ignorable man Mugaybe, nxA! Mugaybe and TsvanGay!

    During those years most tribes where always semi naked if not copletely naked.
    Look at the Queen Lozikeyi fully dressed including a belt for her skirt.

    If only Lobengura had not sold the country through that stupid thump of his,Zimbabwe would have been very far by now.Ma**** akagara achitengesa,Mzilikadzi akasiya atengesa Tshaka ku Zululand akatizira to our beautiful Zimbabwe mwana wakewo Lobengura ndokusvikotengesawo apiwa zviwitsi nemavheti.Munotinyadzisa ibvayi manyarara zvenyu munomutsa zvirere.

    Lozikeyi would just give Chando Bla and viva a single clap for being disrespectfull and the rush to cook for the children.

    She did it to those before them including maVheti.

    So why are you insulting each other, Download this picture and show it to your children in the future. You educated and foolish people. Fools must not get education because they become a problem in the society.Thanks editor for unleashing a good peace of history.

  10. Dabulap on Sat, 11th Feb 2012 10:20 am 

    Chando my brother, I am not a tribalist but usawandzire vamwe. It is a historical fact that the British having bypassed Mthwakazi kingdom via Masvingo estabished their capital in Mashonaland with no resistance and then teamed up with Shona sellouts to attack the Ndebeles. Even at independence some of us witnessed that almost all black Rhodesian soldiers were Shona. It would not suprise if you were one of them Chando because we now see a lot of them masquandering as Zanu. Even the biggest sell outs during the struggle Muzorewa, Chirau and ********* were Shona. Most people will agree with me that Shonas love money so much that they will do anything to get. They are also the center of coruption in Zimbabwe. I am sorry to those good Shonas who don’t fall into this catagory.

  11. Kukurahundi Pain on Sat, 11th Feb 2012 10:48 am 

    True Duplap shona pple have never stopped loving money, they have moved from needing to wanting and thereafter loving. The process has gotten Mthwakazi into big **** ever go be know in the history of humanity. The country is in tatters because of selfishness and greed. It’s a shame bakwethu, the milk, milk and milk until all the adders are empty and start bleeding. It also shows greed because they don’t even want go hear about Mthwakazi independance because of jelous and continue with oppression of the Mthwakazians.

  12. Kukurahundi Pain on Sat, 11th Feb 2012 11:01 am 

    @Chando. Musunu kanyoko shna lo****i you actually assisted the white settlers to endorse authority over Mthwakazi.

    haiwawo ka skirt ako akakapiwa nevarungu vaipiwa masack e gold naLobengula yaibva ku mashonaland as tribute.Lobengula sold Zimbabwe fOREVER HE WLL BE REMEMBERED FOR THAT .WE WLL STAND ON GUARD THAT NOONE OF THEIR TRIBE GETS THE OPPORTUNITY TO RULE OUR COUNTRY.MYBE THEIR MTWAKHAZI WHO BELONG TO NOWHERE

    Chando. Dubulap is saying the truth. Wgho stole the telegraph wire at fort victoria? Shona delayed our independence because they love money. They were
    1.they were the first to work for whites as domestic workers and farm boys
    2. They were the first join hands with whites to fight Ndebeles. Ndebeles never did the same against the Shonas
    3. Rhodesian army spoke mainly Shona instead of English
    4. Muzorewa army spoke Shona.
    5. They are dishonest and undependable, check lancaster house gettlemen’s agreement between Zapu and Zanu and also check Zanu compliance with its own constitution, Zimbabwe Constitution, Universal declaration of human rights (UN), commonwealth, AU and SADDC costitutions.

  26. CHANDO KUPISA on Sun, 12th Feb 2012 9:56 am 

    Hanzi ukabvunza mwana we Mundeere kuti unoda kuiteyi kana wakura anoti:”Ngifuna ukhuhamba e Goli” for the benefit of my fellow Shona comrades and others it simply means the boy wants to go and work in South Africa.Saka ******** amaida kuti apinde ku RAR anga arikupi when you are so few,a few years back a friend of mine working for a beverage company did some market research and he found out that Chitungwiza alone was consuming more drinks than the two Matabeleland provinces put together which shows kuti despite all the noise by the loud mouthed Naked and others in reality the area is spacely populated,remember half of it is game reserve.Whether you like it or not when you talk of Zimbabwe you are talking of Shonas,Nbebeles take Zimbabwe as their second home and even at Natonal events they always look lost and in most cases Shonas end up leading them.This i noticed during my one year stay in Bulawayo,there were Independence celebrations at Barbour Fields Stadium, most of the Ndebeles could not sing the Natonal Anthem,they actually prefered “Ishe Komborera Africa version ” whose origins is South Africa.The other issue is these people are general lazy and they hate Shonas for being enterprising,all they want are GVT handouts and they are very quick to complain of being marginalised.Who is going to come and spruce up your home when you sit back on your laurels.Wake up and start working for yourselves chemahara izuva nemushana.

    You Guys, I wonder what school did you attend! Did you learn from your family to insult each other this way, or the circumstances have taught you this? Above all you are very good at what you are doing. I guess you have attended a class of “Satanism” where they specialize in breaking peoples heart. God bless u all

  36. Ollen Ndlovu on Mon, 13th Feb 2012 7:50 am 

    Zimbabwe is lacking credible leaders, by mere reading the comments above,it shows we have a long way to go. We will never get a good leader out of our children as long as parents are ruled by emotions,hatred, skewed education. We don’t have facts, some we fear facts because they haunt us. I am beginning to wonder,if God wasn’t wise to create different tribes, are we questioning what God, the Almighty created?

    By Staff Reporter

    THERE was drama in Nketa suburb in Bulawayo recently when two prostitutes exchanged blows over a $5 debt.
    According to witnesses, the fistfight started when one of the prostitutes identified as Siphathisiwe, clashed with her colleague known as Cleopatra demanding her money
    Siphathisiwe, according to Nketa residents, is not her first time she was involved in a fistfight as she is now known for her violent behavior.

    She seems to be holding a sweeping broom, she looks more like a house girl to me. Would a true ndebele queen not have servants, especially that there many free slaves from mashonaland? I doubt the authenticity of this picture.

    Nothando let people fight tribalism. When you even outside boarders we people still see tribalism what do you mean. To me its like saying tribalism is imaginary or people should not talk or debate like tribalism is there.

    That is called ukutshaya inja ufihla umphini. You know what Nothando I do not appreciate womanish talk.

    The fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom , says the word of God.Before you spew out hatred for your fellow black brothers and sisters-remember that one day we shall stand before the Almighty God, before whom everything is uncovered and laid bare, and we shall account for ALL our actions and words!And He will surely judge you accordingly!!!!

    Cde Naked , U ar right, the shonas were your slaves and u were the plundering, raiding (raping) masters. But why are u crying abt unfair distribution of resources and ceation of Mthwakazi etc, in your warped mind? Masters are no cry babies and neither are they stupid separatists se magurwe anodambura gumbo netsamwa. Face it and be an equal. Makwembere has a warped mind set like u, but kudos to him ,he is not a tribalist. Gurwe remunhu.
