Emuva kweNkosi uMkhokheleli ubukhosi bathathwa uDibandlela. Ngesikhathi kubusa uDibandlela, abakwaMthethwa babebuswa yiNkosi uDingiswayo. INkosi uDibandlela wabusa waze wamdala kakhulu. Wabona ububi benziwa ngamadodana akhe amabili. Indodana yakhe uMdinsilwa wakhothama ngaphambi kweNkosi, njengoba wabe efanele ukuthatha isikhundla sikayise. Ekhothama uMdinsilwa kwabe kukhona umfowabo wendlu encane uSotukuza. Ubukhosi bakwaCele bathathwa nguVico. Abazukulu bakaDibandlela nabo babanga. Laba kwabe kunguMagaye noMade okwaphumelela uMagaye.

Wathumela amabutho akhe ukuba ayocela ukudla kanye nenyama yokondla amabutho ukuze akwazi ukusimama lapho ehlaselayo. UMande wakhomba inja eyabe izacile kuvele izimbambo ngaphandle, wathi, “Thathani leya nja niyonika uShaka, yikona kudla nenyama emfanele.” Esekuzwile lokho amabutho ukuqhakala kukaMande, adlulela kuMagaye afika nakuye abeka isicelo senkosi uShaka. UMagaye ngokuhlakanipha kwakhe wazamukela izithunywa zeNkosi, wazinika lokho ezikucelayo ngomkhulu umusa. Zaphindela enkosini uShaka zayobika umusa eziwuthole kuMagaye. UMande wenqaba ukunika inkosi uShaka ukudla akucelayo, wabe eyazi inhliziyo yenkosi uShaka, nokuthi uzokwenzani ngaloko. Engqondweni kaMande kwabe kungukuthi uma uMagaye enza njengaye inkosi uShaka uzobahlasela bobabili, bona balekelelane, ukuze bayichithe impi yenkosi uShaka.

Wabuyela kuMfowabo uMagaye wamnxusa ukuba ayomshwelezela enkosini uShaka. Wakwenza lokho uMagaye ngomoya wokubuyisana, waya kuShaka wayomcelela uxolo. UMagaye phela wabe esengumngane omkhulu wenkosi uShaka.

INkosi uShokweni Cele wabhekisa amabombo eDududu. INkosi uXabhashi walibangisa eNgonyameni wafika endaweni engenamuntu bancikana nabakwaMkhize (Embo). uXabhashi wafika eNgonyameni wabhekana ngeziqu zamehlo nezingonyama (amabhubesi) ewabulala.

ENgonyameni amaCele abesexoxa ukuthi afuna ukushintsha izizwe aye ngapha eMzimkhulu ngoba ezwa kuthiwa izwe lilodwa futhi linomnotho wokudla kwemfuyo nezinyamazane ezinhlobonhlobo. UXabhashi wabe eseyobikela iNkosi uDingiswayo Mthethwa eMpangeni ukuthi useyalishintsha izwe laseNgonyameni. AbakwaMthethwa bafike bamthanda uXabhashi base bemgodla bangabe besafuna ukuba abuyele emuva.

AmaCele abe esesuka eholwa uGwija Cele eNgonyameni eselibangise eMzimkhulu ngoba uXabhashi engasabuyi kwaMthethwa. Bafike bagoba amadlangala kwaGqwathaza eHighflats, babuye baqhubekela eNdwebu.

UGwija wabe esewakhumbuza amaCele ukuthi umholi wabo uXabhashi. Babe sebevumelana ngokujuba amadoda, okwaba yibo oMcazi noMashobane ukuyolanda uXabhashi. Sebefika noXabhashi eNdwebu, uFodo benoXabhashi bakhumbulana ukuthi babendawonye beviva kwelakwaZulu ngisikhathi seLembe uShaka.

UFodo wabe esenika uXabhashi kanye namaCele indawo yokugoba amadlangala besafuna indawo okungeyabo ngoba engeke akha phakathi kwabantu baseNhlangwini ayebafice sebekhona. Isizwe nabantu bakaXabhashi babe sebethola indawo engapha kokhalo olusuka eMhlabashana luye luyofika e-St. Faiths naseNdlovuzulu engenamuntu futhi eyingozi ngoba yayinezingonyama. UXabhashi wathi uzoya kokwakha kuyo le ndawo nakuyilapho afike wasebenzisa amasu akhe awasebenzisa naseNgonyameni ukunqoba amabhubesi.

Babethi bangawabulala amabhubesi nezingwe nezinyamazane bese kushukwa izikhumba ngokuhlanganyela nabakaFodo zidluliselwe kwelakwaZulu. Wabuye wakha esigodini uPhongolo wabe esedlulela kaNhlalwane nakuyilapho akhothamela khona.

Kwaba nempi phakathi kwamaCele neNhlangwini ngesikhathi sokubusa kwayo iNkosi uXabhashi noFodo. Le mpi yadalwa ukuhlala noma ukwakha ndawonye kwabantu bakwaCele nabaseNhlangwini. Yehlulwa eyaseNhlangwini inqotshwa eyakwaCele, yaye yayiwelisa umfula uMhlabashana kwase kuba iwona umfula owaba umgcele uhlukanisa amaCele neNhlangwini.

Sekwabuye kwaba umgwaqo umngcele ohlukanisile, nawo lowomgwaqo wadla umhlaba omkhulu ngakwaCele njenganazo izinsimbi zadla omkhulu umhlaba wamaCele. Lo mngcele wezinsimbi wadwetshwa uHulumeni wangaleso sikhathi. Le ndawo eyayibangwa yayisesigodini sasoPhongolo naseMfomfo.

Amanye amaCele aphindela emuva eNgonyameni eseholwa uMgijimi Cele ngoba eyithandile le ndawo yaseNgonyameni. UXabhashi waqamba iMphukuluthu, uMshayindlanzi, iNsizwa, iThaleni, iNdimakude, iMpola, iNdumane, uNguza, iThongwane, iMabedlane, iNtabankulu neNdilinde.

Waphinde waqamba izigodi zesizwe uXabhashi okwaba uNguza, iGumatana, iNdlovuzulu, uPhongolo, uNhlalwane, iMfomfo. Sekubusa iNkosi uBhekameva kwaba nempi esigodini sakwaNguza silwa sodwa nokwabonakala ukuthi inkinga idalwa ukuba bukhulu kakhulu kwezigodi abantu abazakhile baze bangazi ukuthi bangabesigodi sinye.
