This song is filled with so much pain and trauma. It is so emotive. This is an example of how Africans have been documenting history. Through songs and stories. Books are not the only tools of writing history. One of the many ways to make sure the children of the soil never forget.

The singular question I have is: why the history had to be so rough with black? Why us? Why my black? Why Africa ? Why?

Thina Sizwe. Thina sizwe esintsundu. Sikhalela. Sikhalela izwe lethu. Elathathwa. Elathathwa ngabamhlophe. Mabawuyege. Mabawuyege umhlaba wethu. Mabawuyege. Mabawuyege umhlaba wethu. Abhanthwana Abhanthwana izwe lethu. Abhalela Abhalela izwe lethu. Elathathwa. Elathathwa ngabamhlophe. Mabawuyege. Mabawuyege umhlaba wethu. Mabawuyege. Mabawuyege umhlaba wethu.     We the people.  We the black people. We are crying. We are crying for our land which was taken away, taken away by the white people. They must leave our country alone, they must leave our country alone. Let them leave our country alone, let them leave our country alone. No disrespect intended. This song is no different from the French national anthem

So resonate with this song very moving indeed, the words reminding me of our own history in New Zealand and how our land was taken by the English through devious means, land confiscations, etc and its still happening now through legislation... (And we as Indigenous peoples of New Zealand weep for our children and Country...)... Never forget your history even if its a colonial one!  
HlogI Rangata (6 months ago)
Sophie Tauhara You must always fight for you and your right to be. fight for your land. we were dispossessed by the imperialists but Aluta Continua and 1 day all the displaced and disenfranchised will rise up and take back what belongs to us. I know this is 3 years late but don't stop fighting

People you can move on into future victories with a view of the past! Singing this song is not racism but a simple view of history and appreciation for those that have paved the way. No discredit to those whites who appreciate South Africa or the African heritage.
jude Ngu Ewodo (4 years ago)
Reconciliation and forgiveness does not mean that we have to forget history. This song reminds the sacrifice that the Black Nation had to pay to be free. The new South Africa where all nations can and will leave in peace shall not forget his dark Apartheid past. This song shall  be taught to all Children of Africa, not only to the Children of South Africa. So  next generations will know nothing, even freedom shall be taken for granted.

The song is called Thina Sizwe.  Lyrics: Thina sizwe, thina sizwe esinsundu, (We the nation, we the brown nation) Sikhalela izwe lethu (We cry for our land) Elathathwa ngabamhlophe (That was taken by the white people) Mabayeke kumhlaba wethu. (May they leave our land alone) Abantwana be-Afrika (The children of Africa) Bakhalela i-Afrika (They cry for Africa)
This is the only good thing ever for which I can applaud Jacob Zuma. This is beautiful and very emotive. I'm not South African, and I do not know the meaning of this song, but the tone is very poignant and evocative. It set the right mood. Beautiful

Sneh Dube (4 years ago)
Duchess yes this was touching. Phakeme you first comment is unnecessary, as Duchess actually payed our President a compliment. However I do get where you are coming from, but as a citizen in a democratic country you should respect the opinions of others even if they are not South African. BUT Duchess your comment saying Phakeme has gone all native on you has racist undertones. He showed patriotism, you could have said he has gone all patriotic on you. As for the ape comment it is disgustingly racist. You can say what you like to try and defend that. do not even attempt to insult me by saying I am illiterate or 'half literate'. I write what I think, I think what I like, and in conclusion that means I write what I like. You could learn a thing or two from Bantu Stephen Biko. Truth of the matter is that the majority of South Africans voted the ANC into power. Jacob Zuma is the President of the ANC so he is our President. We voted him and his party in. The ANC (and Zuma) answers to us (the electorate) as the people. You were not part of that process. We do not need you to call any of us apes for showing patriotism. You are entitled to your opinion. You can share it with anyone who gives you the time of day. Phakeme should have respected that, but nothing he said justifies your racist comments. This is the internet, people may say things that annoy you. Show some emotional intelligence and avoid responding with racist comments and swearing. It is lazy thinking at its best. #proudly_south_african  #myANC 
+Vincent Seloane  Fuck off!, ape, you half literate buffoon.
Vincent Seloane (4 years ago)
You are just shallow, what is is this "You've gone all native on me" do you even know who you are? 
+Phakeme Mtheku I don't know if you understand English at all. You've gone all native on me, on the defensive attack. I wrote; "This is the only good thing ever for which I can applaud Jacob Zuma." Do you know how much or how little I know of him? You're just a trog on the defensive. Must we all be manacled in servile bondage like you and his bunch of fawning apparatchiks who hero worship him? Do you want me to enumerate the things I know about Zuma, beginning with his concept of the Power Shower as protection against HIV infection? Or the 200Million dollar house renovation money? Do you know he was ordered to repay the SA tax payers money misused for that self-serving purposes? You sit behind your computer and launch your ignorant tirade, thinking that I'm a black SA and nobody knows my country more than I do. You're a nincompoop.

+***** Not sure what your point is. The fact is, the Zulu blazed the path for the British Commonwealth, and were rewarded with a small token which stands today. The only things granted to the Indians, besides welfare and basic housing, is a tithing from the casino mafias - which is pumped back in to the blackjack tables and slot machines.
thatguyhippie (4 years ago)
+jag10 huh - some of the native tribes were fighting in what became the USA before whites got here, but I would not fault anyone singing an anti-Jackson song for a Cherokee leader.  If you fight with your neighbors, it is harsh.  If people from another country conquer you & say it is God's will that your land be theirs so they can civilize you, it is slightly different.  Africa was not perfect before we got there, but I hope you are forgetting how horrible the Afrikaans were to the black locals.  
Neil Pincus (4 years ago)
+Elia Roussos Which racist comments? The president singing about white people being land thieves who must get out is not racist? That's pretty much what the song says, in a nutshell.
