“Kabehli ubuthongo uma indodana yami ingabuyanga ngoba angazi ukuthi ngizotshelwani ngosuku olulandelayo” kusho umzali ocele ukungadalulwa ngenxa yezimo zokuphepha. 

Ufakazelwe ibamba likaSihlalo Wendlu YobuHoli boMdabu, iNkosi uLanga Mavuso, ethe bacele  umhlangano noHulumeni ngoba besaba izinkinga ezingase ziqubuke ezifana nokwanda kwezikole zokusoka ezingekho mthethweni.
