**Nomandla mnakwethu**

Taking a chance and trying some thing

Taking a chance in seek of finding

Fear had become Nomandla’s liability

 

In the darkness of the night her eyes wide open

Battling with her fears

With the hope of someday finding victory

 

Fear had become Nomandla’s daily bread

Kneading and kneading, to triumph

Weary mind hungry

Needing  power

 

Village girl blinded by city lights

No freedom to be found crossing Mandela bridge

Nomandla Nomandla

Nomandla mntakwethu thandaza

 

Baathi it’s the city of gold

The land of milk and honey

Uze uthi xa uyibhaqile logolide Nomandla

Uze ungazilibali

Ezilani. Ekhayeni.

Ezilani. Ekhayeni.
