Memela Izithakazelo

Izithakazelo zakwaMemela

Gambu,
Msuthu,
Memela,
Ngwekazi,
Dumabezwe,
Ntethe,
Kumayakayaka;
Sidwab’ esimantwenguntwengu ngokudliwa yinundu.
Bhele likaMdingi –
Yen’ ongakhokhobi njengoMacingwana, yen’ okhokhobel’ engonyameni.
Sidwaba sokudabuka;
Msuthu ka Langa.
Makoti owadla igqila ethi udla inyama.
Nina abehla ngesiLulu, naningazele usizi nanizele ukubusa.
Mbhaba owakhahlela kuqala eminye ingakokhahleli!

Kant’amaGambu ngabombizane, babiz’umuntu edlula ngendlela bathi akaze azosika wath’esefikile badlanaye kanti baz’omnikez’inkom’eGambu.
Mshukangubo,
Ngwekazi kaLanga,
Nombele,
Math’ amahle,
Zinyawo zenkosi.
UThabethe nguMthwa oluthuli; baze bathi nguNontuli ozitha zasal’edengwane ngob’ uMemela esethukuthele.
Uzalo kaMdingi; umshisi wezikhotha eshisela ababemshisela naye.
Bathi ngu Hlawula, ngob’ ethi “hlawul’ ukudla kwami, njandini!”

AbakwaMemela, ngabantwana bomthwakazi. Ngabathwa abaluthuli abathwal’isiba lomkholwane, lona lingathwalwa ngabafokazana, lithwalwa ngamakhosi.
