The name Intemba has a long and illustrious cultural significance in the history of the Ndebele people. Entembeni is a town located north of Bulawayo at the mouth of the Khoce River. During the reign of King Mzilikazi, an army regiment was stationed in eNtembeni village. The regiment was known as the Intemba regiment. The Entembeni Old People's Home, which opened in 1967, is likewise named after the settlement of Intemba.
