To SIR WITH LOVE:
As this day that I never wanted to see dawned and pass – Now I understand why hail and storms were upon Tshwane Metropolitan, the sky was weeping as this day was drawing nearer, Now I understand why the Earth shook, it must have been nature’s way of accepting such a great soul was to be promoted a level up, As today it’s overcast the entire daytime, it resembles the grief my soul is going through, It’s by no mistake that I write this letter with Johnny Clegg Asimbonanga song playing on my Tablet on the background.
Words are failing me, however I will stumble trying to pay tribute to you through this letter,
You’re a GIANT, a man of Stature, the Leader and son of this Land, You served us, citizens of this beautiful land for 27 years unselfishly and with gratitude, many still can’t comprehend how you had no bitterness after your release.
As I bid Farewell to you I say Hamba Kahle, QHAWE LAMA QHAWE, ‘NDODA EMADODENI, O MOGAKA O SENATLA, O SEGATHLAMELA MASISI, O TAU TONA, O SETSWERERE SA MMAKHONTHE.
O MONTLE, KA KEMO LE KA SERITHI – A TOWER AND BEACON OF A COUNTRY NONE THOUGHT POSSIBLE HOWEVER THAT IDEAL YOU WERE WILLING TO DIE FOR, GOD OFFERED YOU THE TIME TO SEE IT MATERIALISE
I BID YOU FAREWELL MY GOOD SIR, MAY YOUR SOUL REST IN PEACE TATA WAM – Borrowing From Max Ehrmann when he said “You are a child of the universe” with That I honour your Legacy, which is this beautiful country of racial harmony and exquisite diverse of culture.
