UMashaba wathi lababantu yizigangi okufanele ziphume ziphele edolobheni leJohannesburg. Amazwi la atshiye lomphathintambo wendaba zasekhaya ethukuthele okumangalisayo.

Ngesikhathi esethula asekwenzile ensukwini ezilikhulu ethethe isihlalo sikamayor, uMashaba wathi abakwamanye amazwe abaselizweni ngokungekho emthethweni yizigangi njalo yibo ababangela ukuthi intuthuko yedolobhio leJohannesburg ingaphumeleli.

UMnumnzana Canicious Nkala okuyiyo labatsha ebandleni leZapu uthi kusobala ukuthi kwaba liphutha elikhulu ukuthi umuntu onjengoMashaba avunyelwe ukungena esikhundleni sokuba nguMeya.

“Akukho kuhle vele ukuthi umuntu athi eyinkokheli abe ebophanisa abantu noma esexabanisa abantu ngenkulumo zakhe. Of which kuyasihlupha thina ukuthi sithi ma sesisithi sesi Independent sekusetshenziswa ukuthi sibelabantu aba abuser ivoti yabantu bayisebenzise to push ama capitalist ideologies abo.”

UMnu. Mabhena uthi inhlanganiso zeZimbabwe, ezakwamanye amazwe lezakweleSouth Africa eziphikisana lenkulumo kaMashaba seziqoqe ukutshengisela okukhulu emahofinisi ekhansili yeJohannesburg eBraamfontein ngoLwesihlanu.

“Sizamvakatshelake uMeya akasichasisele kahle ukuthi uthini. Yikhoke sinxusa umuntu wonke ofisa ukuthi laye adlulise umlayezo njalo ogxeka inkulumole kaMeya ukuthi abekhona emahofisini kaMeya ngo 11. Kuleground enkulu khonaphana asihlanganeni khonaphana.”

UNkala uthi umnyaka uzaphela nzima nxa uMashaba engaguqulanga izenzo.

“Akehle ngoba vele akakwazi ukuthi uphetheni, wenzani ngoba ma ezaphatha iJohannesburg, Ijohannesburg ayifanani ledolobho elifana leDurban because siyakwazi ukuthi iDurban lidolobho elikhulu phakathi kweKZN ikantike iJohannesburg ivele iyakhiwe kakhulu ngabantu abavela ngaphandle yikho ibizwa ngokuthi yi African city. Akulamuntu waseJohannesburg lathi ma sifikile siseJohannesburg singabakhona.”

Ngomnyaka ophelileyo kuqhamuke udlakela lokuhlaselwa kwabakwamanye amazwe ngemva kwenkulumo phose efanayo eyethulwa yinkosi uGoodwill Zwelithini, nomanje ikomishini yezamalungelo oluntu yethula ukuthi inkulumo kaZwelithini akusiyo eyabangela ukuthi abakwamanye amazwe bahlaselwe.
