Though the Zulu is known worldwide, it is the Xhosa tribe that have tended to dominate politics in South Africa and many cabinet members are Xhosa people.

Both Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki of the new democratic South Africa have come from the Eastern Cape, the home of the Xhosa speaking.

It can be seen as just reward for it was upon the Xhosa that the longest struggle and main burden of resistance to white penetration from the Cape colony fell.

While Xhosa speaking people are proud of their Xhosa culture or Xhosa tradition, they and other tribes of Southern Africa came to realise that unless tribalism was abandoned, and they as Africans stood united they would never be able to defeat Apartheid.
