The #Xhosas have a strong oral tradition with many stories of ancestral heroes; according to tradition, the leader from whose name the #Xhosa people take their name was the first King of the nation.
One of Xhosa's descendents named Phalo gave birth to two sons, Gcaleka kaPhalo, the heir, and Rarabe ka Phalo, a son from the Right Hand house.
#Rarabe was a great warrior and a man of great ability who was much loved by his father. Gcaleka was a meek and listless man who did not possess all the qualities befitting of a future king.
Matters were also complicated by Gcaleka's initiation as a diviner, which was a forbidden practice for members of the royal family. Seeing the popularity of his brother and fearing that he might one day challenge him for the throne, Gcaleka attempted to usurp the throne from his father, but Rarabe would come to his father's aid and quell the insurrection.
#With the blessing of his father, who provided him retinue and also accompanied him; Rarabe would leave the great place and settle in the Amathole Mountains region. Rarabe, through his military prowess, subjugated various tribes he found in the region and would buy lands from the Khoikhoi to establish his own kingdom.
The amaXhosa would from then on be split into two kingdoms under the senior amaGcaleka and the junior amaRharhabe. The AmaRharhabe branch of the AmaXhosa is under the leadership of the regent Queen Noloyiso Sandile Aah! Noloyiso, daughter of King Cyprian Bhekuzulu Nyangayezizwe kaSolomon and sister to the current reigning Zulu monarch Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu. The AmaGcaleka are currently under the leadership King Mpendulo Sigcawu Aah! Zwelenko who was crowned King of AmaXhosa on 15 May 2015.

Watch the Story behind the song “Testify”. A brief testimony of what the Lord Jesus Christ did for me years ago. Single in Stores | Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, SoundCloud. Preview or Download in Digital all Stores. SCRIPTURE: "When you come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God, for these nations, which you are about to dispossess, listen to fortune-tellers and to diviners. But as for you, the Lord your God has not allowed you to do this.” Deuteronomy 18:9-14

"During our dreams we do not know we are dreaming. We may even dream of interpreting a dream. Only on waking do we know it was a dream. Only after the great awakening will we realize that this is the great dream." ~ Zhuangzi, The Butterfly as Companion: Meditations on the First Three Chapters of the Chuang-Tzu ✨🕉
