The Ndebele People From Zimbabwe Are True South Africans, See 3 Reasons Why.

When you travel to South Africa, you will see people of a wide variety of ethnicities, skin tones, and religious backgrounds. Migration is the reason why so many people have settled here and made a long-term home for themselves. For instance, the Ndebele people of Zimbabwe relocated to a new location outside of their original country. Although they are native to South Africa, they now give off the impression that they are from another country when they are in our midst. 

In South Africa, there is a sizeable population of people who are members of the Ndebele tribe. They believe there are greater job prospects and opportunities overall in South Africa, therefore they are moving back there. 

To state the obvious, it is completely wrong to treat people in the manner that is practiced in our society. This is the justification for it. 

— Some Information Regarding the Northern Northern Ndebele People 

The Northern Ndebele are a Bantu ethnic group that can be found in Southern Africa (Northern Ndebele: amaNdebele; an offshoot of the Zulu of South Africa). They speak isiNdebele between themselves. 

1. The Nguni-speaking Matabele gave their name to the Northern Ndebele, who were formerly known as the Matabele. The name "Matebele" was used by the Sotho people to refer to all Nguni speakers. As a direct consequence of this, there are presently a few Matebele tribes that may be found living among the Basotho people. Those from GaMashashane, Zebediela, and Mokopane, which are all located in close proximity to Polokwane, are included in this group. 

2. They consider themselves to be Matebele, which indicates that they are of Nguni ancestry and originate from the areas of Mpumalanga and Lesotho. Mzilikazi was a contemporary of King Shaka and communicated with him in the same language. The Zimbabwean language known as isiNdebele and the South African language known as Zulu are not very similar to one another. The two languages can be understood by one another to a certain degree if certain aspects of their pronunciation, accents, and loan words are modified. 

3. There are also ancient words used in isiNdebele, including some that are no longer used in isiZulu and are only known by people of advanced age. Because they share ancestors and roots with Zulu people from the KwaZulu Natal (KZN) region of South Africa, the Ndebele culture and language are similar to Zulu culture. This is the reason for this similarity. The amaNdebele of Mzilikazi made use of the shorter stabbing assegai and smaller cowhide shields that were utilized by the army of King Shaka. Before the term amaNdebele was coined, the Ndebele people were also known by the name Bathebele. 

The fact that the Zimbabwains have Zulu surnames is intended to convey the message that they are genuine South Africans. What factors led to this occurring? They fled the Zulu empire and made their home in Zimbabwe, where they eventually established. 

They are not allowed to be citizens of Zimbabwe, and those who are citizens of Zimbabwe regard them as if they were lower-class citizens at all times. When it comes to securing employment or advancing in their current position, they are typically overlooked. 

Since they are South African citizens in the same way that everyone else is, the government of South Africa ought to provide them identification cards. 

Citizenship in the United States can only be granted to white people if at least one of their great-grandparents was born in the country. Identification cards are another thing that the government needs to provide out to Ndebele nationals. Since a large number of South Africans hold the view that immigrants are to blame for their problems, I am confident that they will disagree with me regarding this particular argument.
