Kodwa bashana nike nibone ukuthi wonke umuzi womuntu omnyama, osweleyo nabadla izambane likampondobaba baba namabhisikidi njalo ngokhisimusi? Futhi akubi yinoma yimaphinje amabhisikidi kodwa, imvamisa kuba ngama Bakers Assorted Biscuits.

Abaningi engake ngababuza bangitshela ukuthi akusekona ukuthi basuke bewadinga amabhisikidi kodwa sekuyazenzekela ngesizathu sokuthi yinto abazalwa yenziwa ngabazala.

Ngonyaka odlule ngixoxele wonke umndeni wami nabangaziyo ukuthi angisayingeni eyokuthengana namabiscuits ngoba ngisho nezivakashi akuseyona into ezithokozela ukuzitshwa ngayo kuleminyaka ,i kwazivakashi lezo seziyivelakancane ngabokhisimusi .

Kwathi December 2012 ngiqhuba inqola yami yasesitolo ngidlula ngakumabhiskidi, ngawaziba isiZulu. Kuthe noma ihlo lithi lifuna ukuwabheka ngashalaza into eyoze iyolahlwa ngaze ngayoshaya ikhona. Yize unembeza wawulokhu ungixakile, kwathi uma sengimi kulayini wokukhokha ngazincoma ngazishaya isifuba ukuthi nginqobile, ngasho ngathi cha ngiyisikhokho sangempela.

Kwaba sengathi amabhiskidi ayangizwa. Ngathi ngithi ngiyaqinisela kwaba sengathi aseze angiqhweba enhliziyweni ukuthi ngiwalande. Ngabosathe ngiyaziba kwala. Uthe ulayini ususondela entombazaneni eshaya isisefo ngabona izinqola zabantu bonke ziphethe ama Bakers Assorted Biscuits kwangathi ngibaselwa ngomlilo obuqanduqandu. Kulaphoke ixhwele lase lingishaya okomuntu odla iwhhunga. Ngathi ngiphaphama ngasengishiye inqola yami sengimi lapho bekuhlezi khona amabhisikidi ebengiwazibile ekuqaleni. Eish! Kwabe kungasekho lutho lapho bekuhlezi khona amabhisikidi.

Umfana wase supermarket ebona ukudumala kwami wangitholela ibhokisi elincane nelikhulu lamabhiskidi abesale ngenhlanhla kwelinye lamashalofu, wathi angikhethe. Yimi lowaya ngihlwitha ibhokisi sengathi kukhona obezolithatha kuqala kunami. Mina lo ngibuyele kulayini sengiphethethe ibhokisi elikhuuulu lama Bakers Assorted Biscuits sengimamathekisa kungathi ngiwumuntu oqeda ukunqoba impi enzima. Eish!!! Ngizothini ekhaya kulonyaka??

Ukhisimusi ususeduze! Kubonakala ngokuthi zonke izitolo sekade zaqala ukupakisha amaBakers Assorted biscuits. Uwabona kuzo zonke izitolo in that beeeeg box, big enough to satisfy any family and bonke labangani abafika makudliwa kuphela. Into engifuna ukuyazi ukuthi iqhamukaphi lento yokuthi ngokhisimusi kufanele umuntu azigxishe ngama khekhe? And yini kufanele kube lawa specifically? Ashonaphi unyaka wonke aze aqhamuke ngelesisikhathi with such force? Kuyacaca ukthi imali abayitholayo nge-festive is enough to sustain them for a year. Ngendlela adliwa ngawo lama khekhe ungaphika ukuthi anikana amandla nge-festive. But its all part of our modern customs! Ukhisimusi akasiwo ukhisimusi without them. Take them away… ungasale usuthatha nowo ukhisimusi!

The politics of the past – Apartheid. Ngiyazi ukuthi thina bantu abasha asizange sibe ama victims of ubandlululo as much as our parents and grandparents were, but looking at present day South Africa, ucabanga ukuthi people are dwelling in the ‘events’ of the past, or kanye  have we moved on from them? Ngempela ngempela kufaneke sizikhathaze yini ngokwenzeka phambilini, to the point where we let it that shape who we are today, noma do we acknowledge the fact that it shaped who we are thus far, and we should now move onto something different? Is it just umlando okufanele ushiy’we emalibrary noma kuma-museums, or is it still too fresh to be archived away, and no matter how much we try and avoid it, it will never be a separate part of us? Asikhulume, and let us know what you think bantu bakithi!.

 

Wena uhamba nobani?

Eish madoda, isimo sepolitiki eAfrika kulezi zinsuku simi kabi impela niyabona guys, and nalana eMzansi akukuhle kahle impela.
Sekumaqembhu-qembhu nje, and njengoba uhulumeni uncenga abasha ukuthi bayovota, sekunzima ngisho noku-decida. Mina nje Im stuck as to which party to vote for because bonke bathembisa izinto ezinhle, kodwa futhi kunokugxeka nokukhombana ngeminwe okuningi.
Kodwa akuve kubalulekile ukuvota, njengoba behlezi besho nje, ukuthi ‘it is your voice’, or else uku emigratha…lol, ngiyadlala, leli ilizwe elihle kabi, futhi elithembele kuthina intsha. So bafethu nithini nina ngendaba yokuvota??

Kulomhlaba esiphila kuwone manje, kubalulekile ukuthi usazi isingisi ukuze uphumelele. That’s a fact! Kodwa lokho kuzoba nayiphi imithelelo kulimi lethu isiZulu? Sidinga ukulondoloza ulimi lwethu ngoba kabalulekile kakhulu ukuthi sizazi ukuthi sobani njenge sizwe sakaZulu.Kancane kancane it feels like we losing touch with our language, kakhulukazi entsheni yanamhlanje: isingisi sihamba phambili. Singenza njani ukuthi ukugwema lenkinga, ukuthi iqhubeke?

Amajita amaningi athi awanankinga nebhulukwe emzini yawo kodwa abazali abaningi especial emakhaya abayizwa kahle eyebhulukwe kumakoti.

NjengomZulu ulimi lwakho luyindlela ebalulekile of expressing yourself okusho kuthi isiZulu sisetshenzizwa kakhulu kunakuqala in social networking.
