The Sacred Mantjolo Pool
A little north-west of Mbabane, Mantjolo, under its calm waters resides the entire Mnisi ancestral clan. According to traditional belief, it is believed that when a member of the Mnisi family passes on, the spirit of that person lives at the bottom of the sacred pool in a world that is similar to the world we live in. It is a known fact that the level of the pool never varies in spite of drought, heavy rains and a white farmer who utilized the pool as part of his irrigation system. The sacred Mantjolo pool is a national monument in Swaziland. King Sobhuza 11 recognized the sacred nature of the pool and permission was granted to the Mnisi clan to have large gatherings in the area. He also provided slaughtered cows for the occasions. Only the Mnisi’s can petition the spirits of the pool. The spirits have the power to create violent thunder or hail storms and can prove petitions intentions of having bad intentions or as “Muti” traditional medicine for greed. The pool becomes cloudy or suddenly rippled with no wind present or other obvious disturbances in showing its displease. Sudden thunderstorms and hail storms can destroy crops or property of the offender and he may expect severe consequences especially if they are not a Mnisi are foretold by those used to “reading” the pond. The test of leadership was simple to determine all pretenders too the kingship. They were to enter the pool and submerge a burning candle or torch. The person who emerged the candle or torch alight was then hailed as a new leader. The Mnisi clan is the guardians of the sacred pool.
