Ndzi vone Nelson Mandela ari entirhweni e khoto endzhaku kaloko kuve na kukombisa kuvilela hi vamanana valwela milawu ya mapasi hi 1959.

Andziri muteki wa mahungu lontsongo eka phepha hungu ra Rand Daily Mail laha andzaha dyondza tani hi muviki wa mahungu kusuka e khoto yaka majistarata.

Hinkarhi walowo andzi n’witiva Mandela naswona andzi byele leswaku kutava naku tengiwa ka milandzu ya vamananalava ava khomiwile lava ava pfaleriwile eka basement ya muako walowo laha akuri na ti cell to pfalela vabohiwa naleswaku vateki va mahungu avanga pfumeleriwanga kuva kona.

Mapapila Kusuka e Robben Island

Endzhaku ka khume ra malembe, loko Mandela ari e khotsweni ra Robben Island, undzi tsalele papila. Hikutshembha leswaku, nkarhi wunwani atiyisile leswaku vange rifikisi papila leri, ari kongomise eka wunwana.
