Inkosi Enkhulu Mqikela: 130 year anniversary of his death

Images of Inkosi Enkhulu Mqikela, who was the eldest son of Chief Faku and first chief of East Pondoland, died on 28 October 1887 in Qaukeni, near Palmerton, Pondoland. Chief Mqikela took over from his father as paramount chief of the Pondos in 1868, but because he supported the Griquas of Kokstad in their revolt against the Cape government in 1878, his recognition as paramount chief was withdrawn and the country was divided into East Pondoland (the Quaka) under Mqikela's rule and West Pondoland (the Nyanda), ruled by his brother Ndamase. Mqikela was succeeded by his son Chief Sigcawu (Sigcau).
