dumping site
The Thandanani cleaning project mission: s Pretoria residents living in a healthy environment, but the community members do not want to work together and they continue creating illegal dumping sites” said the leader of the Thandanani cleaning project 

how we clean our environment

They are no planning to start a door to door campaign whereby they will educate households about the hazards of illegal dumping sites within our community. The problem is that residents do not want to wait for the municipality to come and collect the waste.

also known as Shaka zulu was in the year 1787 in Kwazulu-Natal, 
assassinated: 1828 September 22
Dingane and Mhlangana, Shaka's half-brothers, appear to have made at least two attempts to assassinate Shaka before they succeeded, He was the most influential leader of the Zulu Kingdom

Dingiswayo's death

According to the diary of Henry Francis Fynn, Dingiswayo's death (c.1818) was the result of Shaka's treachery, though firm testimony of this is lacking. However, it is known that when Dingiswayo fought his last battle, Shaka did not arrive at the scene until after his overlord's capture. He thus retained his forces intact. Zwide later murdered Dingiswayo, and, when the leaderless Mthethwa state collapsed, Shaka immediately assumed leadership and began conquering surrounding chiefdoms himself, adding their forces to his own and building up a new kingdom.
