Meaning "nurse", this isiZulu word is found in the titles for two very different theatrical events:
Umongikazi: a Zulu performance event
See Peter Larlham, 1984.
Umongikazi: a play by Maishe Maponya
More generally found as Umongikazi: The Nurse, this is a highly politicized play about the racism and incompetence in hospitals and makes a call for unionisation.
1983: Toured Britain and Germany in the same year.
