novoti gcisakazi Calpurnia jiya (16 April 1994 / Taleni)
I bow down to those who fought for democracy
I bow down to those who sacrificed their lives
I give honour to those who believed in freedom
I bow down to those whose blood spilt for us.
We where we are because of those who believe
We where we are because of those who never backdown
We here because they saw the bright future
We here because they wanted us to have what we have today
And thats the reason i'm a proudly South African.
