My mpondo I dentity



I don't quite remember why I started this blog but I know that I want  it to reflect who I am and my cultural identity forms and intergral part of that. Everytime I make mention of my Sukude clan name and Mpondo heritage, theories other tribes have about us both shocks and saddens me. Apart from our neighbouring nations always steal the thunder, the miseducation and misidentification of mpondo people about their own identity is actually quite systematic from the days of colonialism but I won't get into that. Ever heard of the wild coast? Yep, that's us right there.
