Siyabonga Phoswa (7), Grade 1, Refano Primary
Siyabonga wanted to become a farmer. He loved livestock and feeding his doves. Every day when returning from school – before greeting the family – he would sing his favourite gospel song, Mphefumulo Wami, by the late gospel star Lundi. He loved imitating Lundi and knew all his songs. His mother Florence recalls: “No matter how stressed I was, every time he sang, he gave me hope. “There was something about his unique voice. To this day, I can still hear him singing the song. I now know Mphefumulo Wami because of him,” Florence says.
