Ari Sitas, Theoretical Parables as re-worked by Gladman Ngubo* (2007): Page 2 of 12

Body: 

 

(2)Inyoni yamasi yasuswa emakhaya.

 

Amadoda ahamba ayosebenza emigodini enezindonga ezihlabelelayo. Abakhulile bakhahlazeka ngokweqile. Izingane zafa zingekazalwa. Abesifazane behla benyuka emasimini beqokelela abangahle bakuthole, ukuze ibhodwe liye eziko.

 

Ezigodlweni inyoni yamasi yabulawa, ukuze kutholakale izingxenye zayo ezayenza yahlakanipha. Kwabhalwa ngezimpaphe namathambo ayo athambile; bahlakaza ngobuciko ikhanjana layo, izinyawana zayo bazeneka kolayini, umlomo bawugcina emabhodleleni anoviniga. Banqekuzisa amakhanda bavumelana, bathi bangenza eziningi ngamalahle nenjoloba.

 

Indoda yenqola yehla ezintabeni yeza emakhaya.Yayihamba imemeza ithi, ``ngemali encane, thenga inyoni yamasi nama-chips, ngesihlanu, yizwa ubumnandi bokukhukhuza ithambo layo.’’

He had worked for Drum Magazine and the Durban Arts Association after he lost his factory job. He was very active in post-Apartheid cultural activities and policies.
