I-‘Midnight Express ’njengoba uMkhalele ayebiziwe khona uthe, abadlali balahlekelwe yithuba lokuqhudelana esigabeni sezwekazi namaqembu ahamba phambili.

Ubheka ukuthi lokhu bekungaba yindawo yokufunda kanye nenkundla enhle yabadlali yokuchayeka nokwenza ngcono ngesikathi ebasiza njengabaqeqeshi ukuthola amasu amasha kozakwabo.
