  1. So Mpezeni was married,chaipa .I saw his pictures during the Ncwala dinner at Pamodzi from the dancing I thought he was single. take another look at those fotoz you might see that.

  2. I feel soul broken. My sincere condolencies to Chief over the untimly demise of her royal highness Njovukazi. Prayers to this family please. ignore the Ncwala dinner pictures at Pamodzi for now!! In fact lets pretend we never ever saw them

  3. Baby C, i thought the story said she had a stroke? Are we about to accuse Njengembaso of something seeing as he has a very ‘nice’ repuatation in ‘that’ dept lol

  4. Chief Mpezeni was very married though he likes “Enjoying his subjects” if I may quote his language. He is a Ngoni Bull.

  5. Ati shani ba Baby C? It seems nomba kwati tukalakumana fye pamalilo. LT has become too boring sure. Anyway, abalumendo banandi balawila, Ba Moze, Jamaco …kulosha fye pa LT.

  6. Mmmm baby C iyo ni selective blindness. I ll ask Chief Mpezeni to supply you with some special eyedrops so you can start seeing lol.
    And what makes you think its not a stroke?Anyway, MHSRIP

  7. Mazyopa nkosikazi is survived by a daughter and a husband. Surely at that age Mpenzeni has one child? Was she the 4th wife or the one we read about in the paper a few years ago?

  8. Chief mpezeni should go for HIV counselling if he hasn’t by now.his advisors should even advise him to start leading a life that befits a paramount chief.

  9. Atleast Mpezeni is proud of what he does.He knows how to exercise his royal powers.My condoloncz ma nkosi
