The City of Bulawayo is located on an area selected by King Lobengula, the last of the local Matebele Kings, for his personal Kraal. Government House now stands on the actual site.

The name (originally called ko Bulawayo) is generally interpreted as “the place of slaughter” or “the place of killing”, derived from the Ndebele word “bulala” meaning “kill”. It also refers to a Zulu Settlement in KwaZulu Natal, Republic of South Africa from where the local Ndebeles came from when King Mzilikazi and his band of warriors escaped the wrath of King Tshaka the Zulu in the nineteenth century.
