IsiNdebele love poem

Ubuso bakho yisibuko

Ubuhle besaga sami

Shesha ngoba kuzo nyamalala

Yikugcina kwami ukuthi ngiyakuthanda

Ubuso bakho yisibuko

Ubuhle besaga sami

Shesha ngoba kuzo nyamalala

Yikugcina kwami ukuthi ngiyakuthanda

Transvaal ndebele

A new African translation with my love poem translated into southern ndebele (Transvaal ndebele, nrebele, isiNdebele). It comes directly from the Transvaal in South Africa. The isindebele is a Sotho-tswana language which counts about 1 million speakers, Ngunis people installed in the transvaal since the 16th century.

The Ndebeles

The Ndebeles or Matabeles, are Bantu from southern Africa. We must differentiate those of Zimbabwe, those of Rhodesia and those of the Transvaal; They have assimilated many foreigners, sothos and shonas. They are farmers and breeders, and sedentary. They are distributed in dispersed concessions (kraals) corresponding to the polygynic family, although the aristocracy once inhabited fortified villages. They are patrilineal and patrilocal, and the important matrimonial compensation is made in cattle. The Ndebele are constituted in stratified state, influenced by the Zulu model, including slaves, characterized by its territorial expansion and by age classes organized into regiments. They are known for their art, for example their painted houses, which are a way of culturally resisting the Boers.
