I miss Sigujana in the list. Shaka's half-brother who was put on the throne by his father and deposed and killed by the angry Shaka.--Gerard von Hebel 21:47, 7 April 2006 (UTC)
Sigujana is not recognised in the Zulu Kings list as he was never the rightful heir to the throne. The older brother Shaka was alive and therefore Sigujana could not have been a legitimate Zulu King - KJK —Preceding unsigned comment added by [[ 07:39, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
I found this article and saw that it claimed Ndaba kaMageba to be the son of some Nkosinkulu. This is clearly wrong, as the "ka-" prefix in the name means "(child) of". I don't know who first made this list, but it was a confused mess, with some names linking to irrelevant articles.
Using Wikipedia itself as a source, I fixed the geneology and linked to the full binominal names, fixing a lot of red links. This is one example of the many advantages in using the full binominal names of Zulu royalty, similar to the obvious advantage of using other people's surnames. I am aware that using Wikipedia as a primary source is against policy, but the geneology deduced from the various Zulu kings' articles is much more logical that what was in this article.
I have a question: did Mkabayi kaJama ever rule in any capacity? If not, then she should be removed from the list.
