Love and prosperity for motherland


King Lubosi Lewanika the first (Imutakwandu) Mawaniketwa Nakandambo Lubosi wa Nyambe, was a son of prince Litia Mulambwa. His mother was Inonge, and their marriage was arranged by Mando, his elder brother. Lubosi had a twin sister Matauka. Even though princess Matauka came first, the Luyana people like to believe that Lubosi, or Mushondwa being Mulena yo muhulu as Litunga, was older. Hence it is held and believed that between any twins born in Barotseland, one who comes second is older, because he or she is sending her or his younger sibling ahead of him or her, saying; I will find you, I am coming. His younger brother was Wamungungo.

King Lewanika had 44 children altogether, Litia Malikana Yeta III, Yeta twa mona, Muilula being the first male, and his mother was a Subiya woman from across the Zambezi in Sesheke named Ntelamo, or usually known as Ma Litia. Find King Lewanika I's 44 children here.
