Explanation:

“Fundisi” means “a priest”, “a minister of religion”. It can also stand for the English word “teacher”. See the web examples below:

"The Fundisi -- fundisi is apparently title applicable to status of Priest, which is what James Earl Jones' character is -- travels to Johannesburg after being warned that his sister is gravely ill."
http://www.crankycritic.com/archive/crythebelovedcountry.htm...

"Fundisi were surely fond of springs and so was the later Catholic Church."
http://members.nbci.com/catshaman/22erils1/01Romans2.htm

fundisi um-fundisi um/aba n. 1, teacher;2, minister of religion.

By the way, if you would like to find more words, the last link I typed in is a dictionary, where, along with many others, the Zulu word “fundisi” can be easily located.

I hope that this will be helpful.

Regards.
