In Response To: Re: Dube Family Tree ? ()
I am new to this thread, but I would like to inform you that the DUBE surname Pronounced (Do-Bay)are of Zulu nation is one of great interest. You will find that this name is taken from the totem iDube (Zebra). People of this family are also called Dube - Mbuyazi, Lushozi, Nzwakele, Bayise as praise names (Isithakazelo). Historic figures of this family include: Langalibalele Dube co-founder of the African National Congress, "www.anc.org.za/ancdocs/history/people/dube.html" , Singer Lucky Dube,"www.afropop.org/explore/artist_info/ID/17/Lucky%20Dube", Artist Bongi Dube of Umlazi, S.A., who created the SABMiller Calendar famous South Africans. By the way some of those using the Dube surname are descendents of the great King Shaka kaSenzangakhona Zulu, the founder of the Zulu nation.
