Zulu (?): Kapilayyo!

The following is said to be a Zulu war chant:

Individual: Kapilayyo!

Group response: Jee!

Individual: Kapilayyo!

Group response: Jee!

Individual: Watinaha!

Group response: Haaa!

We used to use this as our high school's pregame (American) football chant. If I remember correctly, one of our preachers brought it back with him from South Africa, maybe 100 years ago.

Anyone out there with a translation?

[Edit:] A correction:

It might have been Watinana instead of Watinaha.
