A South African Zulu group Izingane Zoma sings calling for the return of Ndebele people to South Africa saying : "Whatever happened between Shaka and Mzilikazi that's a family issue, we can easily talk it over today.."

The group calls for the return of the Ndebeles because in Zimbabwe they are under an 'apartheid system' instituted against them by the Shona people.

Below is a transcript of the song in English:

These our people  who fled with Mzilikazi, how are they going to return home? We are missing them; when are they going to come back; because where they are Shonas are oppressing them.

Whatever happened between Shaka and Mzilikazi that's a family issue we can easily talk it over today; it's nothing.

They are suffering in Zimbabwe. How can we get them back; it will better if they come back home. Its pointless for them to stay in Zimbabwe. Stop oppressing them or segregating them;
