King Nswazwi was a grate warrior who used to protect his people against enemies even though the cercomstances forced him to stay under the command of another king, Nswazwi, that happened after he was defeated by Tshckadi thats when he decided to live under the protect of King Mzilikazi. King Nswazwi is now symbolized with a shield and a spear, in memory of his power.
At this time I designed an attire which is symbolic for the troubled king. The yellow colour on the coat symbolize power, but the red stains in his attire symbolize the bloodshed of his people in the war between him an Tsekedi. I wrote this short poem for him:
I Nswazi the great,
King of the Bakalanga-Baka-Newazwi
I will not stand and watch my flock being terrorised
I will not fight a bloodshed war but peaceful war
I will fled with my people to another place,
When a hen hides with it's chicks doen'st mean it is a coward, it only protecting its chicks.
I am protecting my people too
And I will rise against my enemies.
