Xhosa cuisine: the dishes and traditions
King Shaka kaSenzangakhona has been portrayed as a blood-thirsty dictator who ruled through coercion and instilled fear in his people. Contrary to these misrepresentations, early colonial accounts portray him as a keen international trader who went out of his way to protect the traders between 1824 and 1828.

African ancestors continue to give Africans a shared and personal sense of self-affirmation, identity and unfettered belonging.
Zulu cuisine is still very much influenced by tradition and its celebration of history and a commitment to culture.
