Afrikaans: Weenen is een van die oudste dorpe in KwaZulu-Natal, in 1839 deur die Voortrekkers gestig en so genoem as gevolg van hulle geween na aanvalle deur die Zoeloes by Bloukrans en elders.
English: Weenen (Dutch for "to weep") is the second oldest European settlement in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. It is situated on the banks of the Bushman River. The farms around the town grow vegetables, lucerne, groundnuts, and citrus fruit. The town was laid out in 1838 at the site of a massacre by the Zulu's following Voortrekker settlements in the area near the royal kraal of Dingane. A now-closed narrow gauge railway was built in 1907 to connect the town to Estcourt, 47 kilometres to the west.
