“Ngisho ngabe ngikhona noma angikho kodwa umqeqeshi ozoya nathi kwiNdebe yoMhlaba kumele aqinisekise ukuthi iNingizimu Afrika imelekile eqenjini. Ngokumeleka ngisho ukuthi zonke izinhlanga ezikhona zifakwe kodwa konke lokhu kwenziwe ngokuqoka ithalente. Kumele kube abadlali abakwaziyo ukuya empini namazwe afana ne-Australia neNew Zealand engikholwa wukuthi sinawo amava okuyishayela ekhaya.”
