Ngqika

_____________________________________________________

The Ngqika or Gaika are the royal clan of the Rharhabe Xhosa, who moved westwards over the Kei River, away from the Xhosa heartland. Historically, they are often contrasted with the Gcaleka Xhosa who remained behind in the Xhosa "Transkei".
