Kuhlala kumatasa ewindini lamathikithi, ngakho fika kusenesikhathi ukuvikela ingcindezi. Usengathenga futhi ithikithi lakho khona ewindini, kodwa ungazitsheli uzovese ufike ugibele khona manjalo esikebheni sokuqala. Ingxenye yesigidi yabantu abavakashela lesiqhingi njalo ngonyaka, isikebhe sithatha amakhulwana amabalwa abantu. Yingakho abaningi bebhalisa kusenosuku kumbe ezimbili. Ngamaholidi ka December no January kube yimbijana impela ukubhalisa.

Nakuba abantu abaningi baye bacabange ukuthi yisakhwo kuphela othola kuso amathikithi, iGateway iyingxenye yobumqoka yokufunda ngenqolobane-mlandu. Kunembukiso eminingi estezi, nama-video ajulile ngomlandu ongakwazi ukuwathola nge-internet.

Konke okwakhiwe ngayo leliThala lomqulumlandu yizinto eziqoqwe kwikhosomba lomkhusu weMayibuye – eRobben Island, egcinwe enyuvesi yase Ntshonalanga Kapa.

Phansi, kunezithombe ezimbalwa ezimunyu zesiqhingi neziboshwa zaso, namakhabethe aqoqwa. Ekuvuleni lamakhabethe uyothola okuningi okubandakanya izincwadi zeziboshwa, izingubo, izitifikethi zokuzenzela. Isitezi esiphansi siphinde sibe nehholo lemicimbi nemihlangano yezisebenzi (engezwa bethi iba ngenomdlandla, njengoba ifanelekile ngokwenhlangano empande yazo inkululeko).

Uma sewuqedile ukuhamba ubuka usungaqhubekela esitezi esiphansi la uzogibela khona isikebhe. Ukugibela kuba yimizuzu engu 30 phambi kokuba sisuke, sisuka ngesikhathi njalo nje.
