FIVE reasons Zamcolo is Mzansi’s favourite amaJudiya leader – Umkhokha: The Curse

21 June 2023
Siphamandla (Zamcolo) Mthembu has come a long way. From the then rebellious party animal to the respected leader of the Ithempile LeNkosi church that he is today.

Here’s why he’s Mzansi favourite AmaJudiya leader: 


He oozes his later father’s anointing power:

Unlike his half-brother Mlungisi who demands power and authority, Zamcolo is a natural. He has the power to pray and heal amaJudiya. That’s no surprise because he is the chose one after all.  


He remains humble even when pushed to the limit:

First, Mlungisi threw Zamcolo’s suggestion to work together in his face, then he humiliated him by unseating him in the presence of amaJudiya. The last straw was when Mlungisi demanded Zamcolo to bow down before him. All this time, Zamcolo remained calm.  


He has faith in his late father, Mvelase senior:

We must admit that this did not happen overnight, but Zamcolo’s faith in his father’s power has grown over the past few months. While Mzansi is busy stressing about the fact that Mvelase senior is blue ticking him, Zamcolo remained calm because he knows the battle is not his to fight.   


He hasn’t lost respect for his elders:

Even when his uncle barred him from entering the ancestral altar, he did not fight. As difficult as it was to realise, he was slowly being stripped of his birth right, he turned back. Mzansi couldn’t help but call out for Zamcolo’s late father to deal with the uncle, because wow!


He puts his family first:

Family has always come first for him, and he tends to rely on family most when faced with challenges. All the time Mlungisi came to launch attacks, Zamcolo had his family by his side.
