Just read the meaning of this term in Zulu Rising! (What a book).

Apparently, when a man had killed, another, he needed to undergo a cleansing ritual to appease the spirits, for spilling another man's blood. Warriors who had not yet undergone the cleansing ritual were described as "inxweleha" . kwaZulu, meaning, in limbo, or wet with yesterday's blood.

Hi Tasker224.
I finished reading mine on Wednesday and you are correct in saying '' What A Book '' ! . Truly the new benchmark .
Many footnotes which I'm trying to follow up in regard of finding this / these primary sources but it isnt easy when you
dont get many replies . Suspect . I will soldier on ...........
