Zulu command structure was set up into hierarchical divisions just like any army, modern or ancient. An iNduna was a tribal leader who would command these military divisions. An Elder iNduna had overall command of a particular force. He would have been in service for many years and one or more of these experienced chiefs might accompany a large corps on an important campaign. Under them would be a Senior iNduna who controlled the corps’ grouping. Under them would be the corps commander. Coordination of tactical movements was supplied by the iziNduna (plural of iNduna) who used hand signals and messengers to deliver orders. Beneath them at a regimental level were lower ranked iNduna who acted much like the NCOs maintaining discipline and bolstering morale.
