Post Icon The Coming Of Ngoni

The Ngoni invasion in East Africa can be traced to the period of chaos in the South Africa, and that period was called Mfecane (The crashing).
Factors that contributed to these crushes which forced Ngoni people to Migrate were;
  • Powerful leader Tshaka of the Zulu who organized war against the neighboring state.
  • Shortage of food due to the rapid increasing of population.
  • Shortage of land for crops and pastures due to the presence of European in Drakensberg Mountain.
Ngoni people who led by Zwangedaba attacked by some people of Swazi so they decided to move Northward. After Zwangedaba death at 1845 Ngoni people spread to five groups which can be found in Malawi, Zambia and Mozambique.
Consequences of Ngoni Migration
  • Formation of large political systems such as Mkwawa and Mirambo.
  • Destruction of Livestock and other properties.
  • Introduction of new culture and ways of keeping laws and order.
  • Introduced new military techniques ex. Assegai spears/cattle horn formation.
  • Many people were left homeless.
  • Hehe unified with the help of Ngoni military tactics.
