I hope neither side loses anyone also! It hardly seems fair that 4 of the Majingilane ganged up on 1 poor Selati!

its nature playing out, 2 strong coalitions and neighboring territories will always lead to a fight.

It would be amazing to see that power in action. The power of a lion is magnificent, but to use it on each other feels wrong. I hope they sort out what they need to with no loss of life.

Who killer kinkitale or mapogo.ans) majingilane. Who killed Mr. T. Ans) selati. It would be a strong battle.
I don’t want that because I am too sad by what happen to mapogo so I don’t that to happen again.

I’m sort of confused, if the Majingilane killed Kinky Tail and the Selati killed Mr T which coalition took over that part of Magopo territory?

Hi Joanne,
The Mapogo were split at the time of Kinky Tail’s death, with him and Mr T being dominant on Londolozi and MM.
Upon Kinky Tail’s death in 2010, Mr T. moved into the western sector to join the rest of his coalition, which is where he was eventually killed by the Selati males.
Having killed him, the Selati Males took over this territory themselves, and were eventually ousted by the Majingilane in 2014/15.
Does that help?
Best regards
