About Mugodo Chief of the Kranga

The Rain Queens of South Africa

According to legend, a Kranga chief named Mugodo was warned by his ancestral spirits of a plot by his sons to overthrow him. He had them killed and told his daughter Dzunginidini Dzugundini, that according to the wishes of the sprits, he must marry her a father a girl child. By doing this he ensured that the new heir to his throne would be a Queen and thus a new dynasty of woman founded. The ancestors bestowed onto the princess rainmaking powers, which expanded the wealth of the kingdom. When Dzugundini gave birth to a son fathered by her father, the child was strangled. Her second child was a girl, which signalled the start of the female dynasty: http://rainqueensofafrica.com/2011/03/the-rain-queen-and-the-lobedu-a-north-sotho-tribe
