      Botomani is a common name in the Gungubele era. He, I want to believe, was one of the senior councillors to Chief Gungubele and he played a significant role in the Battle of Gwatyu in 1879.

      I am glad you are on board.



  1. My grandfather told me that his grand father Dyonase came from eGwatyu and Dyonase’s father was Botomani and they believe that Botomani was killed during the battle of Gwatyu but now my grand father wants to know Botomani’s grave. I would like to know what happened to all people that were killed in the battle of Gwatyu did they have time to (ungcwa) each other.
