Ngembhalo, ngingangeta ngekutsi ngatsi udzinga kunconyelwa emandla ekutjeleni labamhlophe kutsi beyingekho indlel kutsi babodvwa bangabona likusasa lalelive imphilo yonkhe. Ngalokubuhlungu akakhonanga kuhamba afike khashane ngako ngagcina ngijabulisa kumbe labamnyama noma labo labangasekudla sakhe. Kwentela kugucula Singisi sibuye, sibona simo lesimbi sendvodza lengazange igwetjelwe bungiyo bayo. Noma bengilungele kuya eALokishini lase Alexandra (ngenyanga ye Ndlovana nga 1986) kwentela kususa lesimo lesibi kakhulu lapha phindze nekuya ebandleni lelise Kapa kuyokhuluma na hulumende ngalesimo futsi nesimo salelive.

Nga 1984 khashane nalapho sifihla khona tincingo tetfu nekukhulumisana letihambela ekujubelaneni kwemandla, lo Hulumende wetfula Umtsetfo sisekelo lowaphakamisa imiyalo lehlukile lapho khona labamnyamaa bebasetjentiswa kusuka nga 1910. Bantfu labaphesenthi lamashumi lasikhombisa nakutsatfu bavalelwa ngaphandle kunaletinye tintfo letakhelwe kukhunga imimango yangaphesheya kutsi lubandlululo lwakhiwa. Lubandlululo alwakheki. Kumele lubulalwe ngaphambi lubulale live letfu. Lomtsetfo sisekelo wentelwa kusita imitsetfo yebantu labamhlophe ngelusito lolubitwa ngema Coloureds kanye Nemandiyaa, labasebenta kanyekanye ngekwabo kanye nekucindzetelwa kwetfu nekuvetwa.
