UNozipho Dube, ongumzali wengane eneminyaka emihlanu uthe, bacela uhulumeni akhe ibhuloho enzele izingane.

“Ngesaba ukuthi ngelinye ilanga izingane zethu zizogcina ziminza,” kusho uNozipho.

“Uma lina, kusuke kuwugibe lokufa. Kubuhlungu ukubona izingane zethu zibhekene nalokhu.”

“Akulungile nje lokhu. Nginxusa uhulumeni ukuthi enze okuthile ngalokhu,” kusho uNozipho.

Sicela uhulumeni angenelele ngaphambi kokuba kulahleke noma iyiphi impilo. Amehlo ami agcwala izinyembezi njalo uma kufanele sibuke izingane zethu zilwela ukweqa umfula.”

Abanye abazali bahamba nezingane zabo futhi baqinisekise ukuthi bawela umfula. Kodwa abanye, ngenxa yomsebenzi, abakwazi ukuhamba nezingane zabo.

“Kubuhlungu ukubona izingane ezincane ziwela zodwa. Siyazama ukusiza iningi labo uma kwenzeka bewela nezingane zethu, kodwa kwesinye isikhathi akekho umuntu ongabasiza,” kusho uMkhize.
