  4. Ndiyabulela ngalomnombo wamaTshatshu,ndiseLady Frere kwaTshatshu ndicela ke nindiphandele okokuba ngomphi omdala uSibango kunye noKatsi,ngoba ngokokwethu uSibango ingathi nguye inkulu.

    1. Inkulu ka Vezi nguTeba wasweleka esemncinci, wemka namanzi. Kwindlu esekunene wazala uSibango. Kwiqadi lendlu enkulu wazala u Sqwebu, kwiqadi lendlu esekunene wazala uMadolo. Kwindlu elixhiba wazala u Katsi.

      Ngenxa yokuba inkulu uTeba seyi swelekile, uSibango wenziwa inkulu ka Vezi. Yena Sibango uzele uDwesine kwindlu enkulu, ekunene wazala uRogers, uBhayibili, uStulo noNgqaqeni. UDwesine yena wazala uZola kwindlu enkulu, uZola wazala uPhathani, oseyintlabi yakwa Vezi nanamhlanje.
