The "Ngoni," a Zulu from Malawi. The Ndebele People of Dzimbabgwe are descendants of KwaZulu. From Shaka KaSenzangakhona, they ran. The Nguni/Aba-Ngoni/Zulus can be found in Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, and other parts of East Africa.
Nguni people are Bantu! The term "Bantu" refers to racial groupings that are geographically, linguistically, culturally, and genetically connected. There are groups of Nkope and Kwala people. The Ngunis are all included in Nkope! The Bantu group known as Ngunis have a clicking sound in their speech.

The three Nguni giants Ngwane, Ndwandwe, and Mtetwa clashed, causing the Ngunis to scatter from what is now South Africa (Nguniland)! When Tshaka the Zulu's strength appeared unstoppable, this progressed more quickly! Many tribes, including his army leader Mzilikazi, fled from Tshaka.
Marriages to San and Khoikhoi resulted in the clicking sound! Among other places, Nguniland included South Africa, Botswana, a portion of Mozambique, and Namibia; Nguni raids were brought on by Mfecane. Some Ngunis traveled as far north as Tanzania through Zimbabwe.
The majority of Zulu people are persuaded that they are the only people and can only be found in South Africa, hence they don't want to hear anything about distant cousins who are found in other African nations.
But the history of this nation tells a different tale than the one that most people are familiar with; it speaks of the civilizations that split apart due to conflict and previous troubles, when most people headed north in search of better opportunities than what they could find domestically.
Some others fled the country out of fear of persecution and the threat to their life, looking for safety abroad to avoid the people who wanted them dead.
Because their relatives fled to neighboring countries, the majority of Zulus and members of other cultures, like the Ndebeles, would prefer not to be associated with them. Some people are even unconvinced of their ancestry and don't want to be.
It makes no sense that this is not adequately documented in the records when you consider that Zulus and Ndebeles who fled the country have established permanently in Zimbabwe.
