eselashwe ngisho nangemithi yenyanga eyaziwayo yangaseMgababa. Kodwa ukugcizelela, wakhuluma nomfundisi owamkhumbuza indaba kaJobe. Yilokho-ke okwamenza wakwazi ukubhekana nanoma yini uma eseboshiwe. Ekugcineni wazithola esebuka lapho kwakufanele kumile khona izinzipho zakhe, izingxenye zakhe ezingaphekiwe ezaziseduze kwalezo ezivuthiwe ngalapho kwakuxhunywe khona ugesi, idolo lakhe elalingashi elaliphezu komlenze, nelinye ngokunjalo, qedane wahlabelela uma esecabanga ngabangane bakhe abathathu , nalabo ayebakhonzile, wazizwa enesifiso sokwenza idili elikhulu.

 

Ngakusasa amehlo akhe ayedumbile ngenxa yokushaywa ngezibhakela, kangangoba wayengakwazi nokuzibona ukuthi ulimale kangakanani emzimbeni. Awayesakwazi ukukwenza, kwakungukucabanga ngabangane bakhe ababili, nesifiso sedili elikhulu. Izwi lomngane wakhe wesithathu, wayelilalele elidlalelwa kwisiqophamazwi, emdayisa.

Kuzona zonke lezinsuku neminyaka, akazange asho lutho. Waqala ukusangana nokuzama ukuzidla yena, ngesikhathi kuqinisekiswa ukuthi nomhlaba sewufile.
