Farewell sis Zozo We who were intimate to you Say the words cannot express The love we heard for you

Sis Zozo  an ectomorphic character Whose eyes opened like a sunflower to a sun Especially when in a midst of close friends like sis Letta Mbulu and brother Caiphas Semenya to mention a few, to all of us, sis Zozo, you  were a woman  of all seasons and more Death will never break our consanguinity ties that were strong as a mules milk.

Sis Zozo ‘s  life is more excellently captured By Steve Wonder when he says in a song “I never dream you, l leave us in summer. . .

” But now we find ourselves left all alone.

Death this daughter of frivolity has become the main tenant of  your fabric.

Your eyes are still and your heart is still. And that brings pain and sorrow especially to your loving husband Robert and your entire family including us who now live across the river   One thing that will keep us in positive spirit is that last libation we had with you and Robert in August.

We shared our aims and aspirations freely; we all decided to pursue in our borrowed times a journey that will make us transcend the tyranny of space and time in our life and let us explore the spirit of our ancestors be they in the falling rain of Kwazulu Natal in the sweltering heat of Mpumalanga, in the adulating golden hills of Gauteng in the land of Namaqualand daisy in the Kalahari.

Whenever we go on such escapade in our life we shall feel  your spirit moving in along with us.

MAY YOUR SOUL REST IN PEACE SIS ZOZO FROM  SIS LETA MBULI! BROTHER CAIPHAS SEMENYA! STEPHEN MNCUBE! AND VULE MUSETSHO.

A  woman of our land like Zozo must be celebrated Somewhere a woman gives birth To a child who will weave a song around the universe While man continue to juggle with megaton bombs that causes Havoc around the world.

May woman celebration be celebrated At home and abroad.

Lastly I want to express my gratitude to minister Mtetwa for bringing the remains of Nat Nakasa.

There are many more Who were buried in the USA like Congress Mbatha ,Pro ACJordan and Gwigwi Mrebi to mention a few.
