Examples from the Web for dumela
Dumela glanced at me impatiently, eke somewhat contemptuously.
You are a Tembu, Dumela; how then can you bring me a man of another tribe, and vouch for him as good?

Dumela came upon the fresh spoor as he was out looking after that sick cow down in the kloof by Aasvogel Krautz.
Giving no further thought to old Dumela, we fared forth over the moonlit veldt.
