Mpondo and Mpondomise were brothers and sisters who lived in the same house. The elder twin's identity remains a source of debate; the most frequently held assumption is that Mpondo is the senior twin. Mpondo is said to have killed a lion while hunting and refused to give Mpondomise the skin, as was usual.
