The legends of the old kings are like treasure maps that guide us. They give us an idea of the origins of the Vhavenda. These tales tell of magic drums. They tell of a god-like king who no-one saw but who spoke with lightning and thunder. They describe an epic journey of a people who built great cities. Even so, in amongst the fable, there are clues that help us to trace how Dimbanyika became the one known as the First King of the Vhavenda.
