Imino namazwani anamadiski asipara wesikhumba esiqinileko azisiza lokha nezeqela ematakeni wemithi neendaweni ezitjhelelako.

Yeke, amahlangothi nemikhono kuthanda ukuba nombala ohlukako osarulana. Kunamatshwayo hlangana namehlo begodu nerenghi enzima magega nelihlo ngalinye.

Ukudla Okukhethiweko

Zithanda ukudla iinunwana nekghomu esemthini, zikhotha umbethe namanzi wezulu aphuma emabharasini neenkhaleni.

Ukukhulisa

Ngokuvamileko zizala amawele ngaphambi kwesikhathi sokuna kwezulu, bese msinyazana nje kulandelwe matjhuguluko wesibili enzeka emzimbeni. Ngaphambi kokuthoma kwesikhathi somnyaka esilandelako nakomileko kuzalwa godu enye isede yesibili yamawele. Ukumitha kuthatha isikhathi esimalanga ali-125. Ikghabu esikazi izakuhlangana pheze neziduna ezisithandathu lokha nayisemzombeni wokungamitha. Ezidunezi zithatha abantwabazo zibabeke eenrurhwini ezakhiweko lokha zona nazisaphumako ziyokufuna ukudla, zibasuse engozini ngokubaguga ngemilomazo.
