South Africa&#039;s bantu invader population is not homogeneous. There are many different tribes, which in turn consist of dozens of distinct sub-groups.
Probably the 2 most well-known tribes are the Xhosas and Zulus.
The Zulus do not circumcise their boys when they initiate them into manhood but the Xhosas do.
If a Zulu and a Xhosa kaffer have a disagreement, the Zulu will always accuse the Xhosa of being a &quot;boy&quot; because of this.
The Xhosa initiations are horrible affairs, a group of young boys is taken into bush for weeks. They are treated horribly and some die. The rest are circumcised by a bantu with a blunt knife. Then they continue wandering around the bush dressed in animal skins and with painted faces. As a young girl, driving with my mother, I would see them wandering in the bush looking terrified. Inevitably some die from infections.
