“Saphuma sonke sabaleka emo-tweni, uNjabulo wasala ngenxa yokuthi lesi gameko senzeka ezumekile. Saphuma sabaleka ngokwehlukana. Ngabaleka ngayo-ngena ehlathini eliseduze, ngahlala khona kwaze kwaba phakathi kwamabili. Ngaphuma ngazama ukuthubeleza ngibaleka ngoba ngangingakalimali kakhulu. 

“Ngazithela phezu kwelinye iqulu lomphakathi, langibamba langihlalisa phansi, langisola ngokuthi ngiyisigebengu, langishaya. Ngashaywa ngaze ngalunyiswa ngezinja. Nakuba ngisindile, ngasizwa wukuzenza umuntu ofile, ngangabe ngisakhala, nganganya-kaza. 

“Bangibopha izandla nezinyawo bangihudulela ehlathini elisedu-ze, kwase kuwuLwesibili ekuseni, sekuqala ukukhanya bengihudulela ehlathini beyongilahla khona. Ngethuka uma ngiphaphama kuleli hlathi kunezidumbu ezingaphezu kuka-5 eceleni kwami, zinama-nxeba okushaywa nokugencwa emakhanda nasemzimbeni,” kusho uMnu Marese.
