High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Soshangane was a General
of the Zulu King Shaka who broke away from Shaka's hegemony and
carved out a Nguni empire of conquest (Gasa or Gaza) in what is now
modern-day Mozambique. Allied with the rival Ndwandwe in 1819,
Soshagane fled after defeat by Shaka. He moved north into
Mozambique, absorbing or conquering numerous followers that include
Ronga and Ndau people. A punitive expedition sent by Shaka to
liquidate his rival was seen off in 1828, and Soshagane
consolidated his empire. When Soshangane settled in Gaza, he then
established his own language, better known as isiShangaan, derived
from his name. Shoshanganes army overran the Portuguese settlements
at Delagoa Bay, Inhambane and Sena, and he extracted tribute from
the Europeans. After the death of Soshangane around 1856,
Soshagane's empire was embroiled in succession disputes.
