Masuku clan names derive from the Zulu people of South Africa. These clan names have been in existence for centuries and help preserve Zulu culture and heritage.
Masuku clan names are not simply surnames but rather a naming system which honours the Zulu ancestors, and which runs across multiple families.
Izithakazelo Zakwa Masuku
Mthondo wethusi uyacwebezela,
Thunda bathole abafokazane,
Mgano owamila emini ebusuku wawohloka,
Wena owaguda inkomo nethole layo,
Sihlahla esingahlalwa zinyoni,
