About Mpondo (aNjanya), King of the amaMpondo
When there are twins from the great house, such as Mpondo and Mpondomise, prioritising the rights of inheritance becomes a matter of the father’s preference. In naming his heir, the father takes into account the preferences of his tribal elders and the community at large. Mpondo’s father chose him as his heir.
