Nyanga will rise from ashes

Nyanga turns 60 years and nobody cares

The year was 1955 when mother Langa gave birth to the son Nyanga under obtrude migrant labour systems of the time.

Soon after birth Nyanga experienced abandonment and rejection as a result of poverty and unemployment became part of life for this young lad for many years to come.

Now that Nyanga is celebrating 60 years of age unfortunately I wish I could say he is aging well but instead unemployment, poverty, diseases and ghastly crimes are what he specialises in at his age and calls himself and by others the Murder Capital.

Nyanga does have a brother and sister, Gugulethu and Khayelitsha residing not so far, but because of how he lives, they distance themselves from him by calling him dangerous and reckless.

How do you ditch your own brother when all is not going well in his life?

Anyway Nyanga you are on your own.

Remain strong and remember that dreams do come true and one day your family will come back for you.

Keep in mind that they might be stars but you are the moon and they are nothing without you
