Umzumbe is an isiZulu name. This is a combination of a noun “umuzi” meaning “homestead” with the enumerative pronoun “mumbe”. The municipality is named after a river which runs through the area and is the main source of water for most of the inhabitants of the area. Legend has it that there was a certain homestead in the area that belonged to cannibals.
