Background

She was born at Mhlabangubo (Mambanjeni), Tsholotsho Ward 13.

In an interview with The Chronicle, Ncube said her great-grandfather Ntuta was a chief who resisted settlers when they arrived in Zimbabwe. He was staying around the area which covers some parts of Tsholotsho, Nyamandlovu and uMguza. He fought and resisted the takeover of his ancestral land by the whites but unfortunately, they lost the fight and were later displaced and settled koMvundlana area.

Through his fights with the colonisers, he lost his chieftaincy. When he passed on his sons took over the fight and fought for a better country.

His sons include Makhohliso Ntuta who killed a lion with bare hands and his name is listed among heroes at the Main Post Office Gardens in Bulawayo, Khuphilizwi Zambezi Ntuta who also fought a buffalo, Gwawula, Gwakwaba Ntuta, Sunduza Ntuta.

Musa Ncube's uncle is the nationalist, peacemaker and entrepreneur Jini Enock Ntuta whom she says inspired her to join politics. Their parents fought colonisation from the ZAPU and ZIPRA fronts.[1]
