    Mzansi brought forth a child in harsh political climate. Making free her people was wise intention. Mzansi is the very interesting and beautiful affectionate name for South Africa. Wonderful information a person gets reading this poem. Truth and courage scribble more toward success. Freedom matters a lot. An amazing poem is shared.10 (Report)Reply
