dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study is to analyse the behaviour of tycoon’s wives in the selected literature, namely; Ndzhaka ya vusiwana by B.K.M. Mtombeni and Mangava ya Joni by D.R.Maluleke. In Ndzhaka ya vusiwana two stories were analysed, namely; “Mudlayi wo tidlaya” and “Vubombi bya swolomba”. In Mangava ya Joni two stories were analysed, namely; “Xiwelano” and “Xihahisile”. Textual analysis was used in this study to analyse the behaviour of tycoons’ wives. Textual analysis is the method communication researchers use to describe and interpret the characteristics of a recorded and visual message. The purpose of textual analysis is to describe the content, structure and functions of the messages contained in texts. This study was attempted to answer the following questions:  What is the behaviour of the wives of tycoons in Xihungasi and Mangava ya Joni?”  What influenced the wives of tycoons to have such behaviour?  What are the benefits of such behaviour? The findings of the study revealed that in most cases, the wives of tycoons have good behaviour. They love their rich husbands and children, are very hardworking and they respect other people. The findings of this study also revealed that in most cases the tycoons have various behaviour patterns. Some tycoons have good behaviour while others are violent, hate other people and dishonest. The findings of this study also revealed that the wives of tycoons are influenced by their childhood behaviour, neighbours and friends. Their love to their husbands also influence them to behave properly. en_US
