Sigujana kaSezangakhona (died 1816) was chief of the Zulu people in 1816. He was the son of Senzangakhona kaJama and half-brother of Dingane kaSenzangakhona and Shaka kaSenzangakhona. He succeeded his father c. 1816.[1] His mother was Bhibhi kaSompisi. Shortly after he became chief, he was eliminated by his half-brother Shaka. It is disputed on whether Shaka had him assassinated,[1] or if Shaka himself killed Sigujana by stabbing him.[2] His birth date is unknown, but whatever the case he died in 1816, shortly after becoming chief.
