Move to Ndaba[edit]

None of the reliable sources say anything about kaMageba. I think the article should be moved to Ndaba unless some reliable source can be provided that shows kaMageba is part of his name.  —Chris Capoccia TC 13:36, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

According to Colenso, ka means "son of" or "daughter of" so maybe kaMageba is not an actual surname. And maybe it should be "ka'Mageba" instead of "kaMageba". See Colenso, John William (1905). "Ka". A Zulu-English Dictionary (4th ed.). Natal, Vause, Slatter & Co. p. 246.

Further reading[edit]

Further reading[edit]

IF anyone has access to these books and wants to put something in the article with them, have at it. Didn't make much sense having a "further reading" list that was about 4 times the length of the article, and relevance of all these is not entirely clear to me.Bali ultimate (talk) 22:45, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
