"The regency was first offered to [Mtirara's] senior brother, Ncapayi, who had by then returned to the Mbashe. Ncapayi, presumably unwilling to rule over people subjected to Colonial control, declined the offer. Shweni, his second brother, a man greatly respected by the Cape Town authorities, was then appointed, but he accidentially shot himself."
