Gqunukhwebe
Ama Gqunukhwebe is a sub-group of the Xhosa nation that was created under the reign of King Tshiwo (1670–1702) of amaXhosa who was a grandfather to Gcaleka and Rharhabe. This consisted mostly of the Khoi chiefdoms (Gonaqua, Hoengeiqua, Inqua and others) that were annexed by Xhosas and western expedition pioneers among Xhosa people themselves.
Khwane, a trusted counsellor to King Tshiwo, headed this new chiefdom of amaGqunukhwebe. He was succeeded by his son Tshaka then Chungwa (grandson).
Their land spanned from Buffalo (Qonce) to Zwaartkops (Qhagqiwa) rivers, but most of it was lost as a result of the Frontier Wars (far west) and other Xhosa tribal wars (near west).
After many years of intermarriage, there were no differences in terms of origins. However, the Gqunukhwebe chiefdom developed subdivisions. This happened through Chungwa's sons Phatho (Pato) and Kama. They respectively settled along the "coast" and "inland".
Today the two amaGqunukhwebe chiefdoms are controlled from two centres, the coastal lineage with headquarters in Tsholomnqa i.e. (Phatho house) and inland in Middledrift (Kama house).
