About Qwambi kaNkosiyamntu

As his people were moving and expanding Xhosa begot Malangana who begot Nkosiyamntu. Nkosiyamntu had four children the Cirha, Tshawe, Jwara (oldest), Qwambi. When Nkosiyamntu died his Greathouse son Cirha naturally took over the role of chief. The only problem was that he was not a capable leader of men and his older sibling through a lot of political maneuvering Tshawe overthrew Cirha and took over throne with the support of his neighbouring Mpondomise allies amaRhudulu [Ngwevu] and he was the Paramount of all the Xhosa. He led the Xhosa to an expansive drive and swallowed up a large number of Nguni and Khoisan tribes in the region. http://amaxhosa.wordpress.com/2011/07/07/umzi-kaphalo-house-of-phalo/
