Was lobengula a victim of deception?

Lobengula was a great king and leader of the Matabele who resided in the South/South West of the country of Zimbabwe. Was he a victim of calculated deception on occupation? As a viewpoint, possibly not, as the Shona lived in the North of the country and the first settlers arrived in Harare in the northern region of the country. The Shona never got on with the Matabele - which is a fact - so maybe it was a shrewd assessment on Lobengula's part. Who knows? The above is a brief analogy, it can be so easy to criticize and cast aspersions but what does this really achieve. There is nobody still living who was around at the time of Lobengula's reign.
