Abstract:This essay questions the generally held view that the northern Nguni were not involved in the slave trade. It is shown that elements of the Ngwane (Swazi), Ndwanwe (Gaza and Jere) and possibly Mthethwa (Zulu) conferations were involved in the sale of slaves captured in the hinterland of Lourenšo Marques and Inhambane. Sections: Introductory - Export slavery and the Nguni - Domestic slavery and the Gaza Nguni - Slavery and its articulation with other forms of exploitation. Map, notes, sum.
