I am from central Africa
The land of my ancestors
Why, why!
Rebellions, crisis and poverty are everyday problems
We have gold, diamond, copper, aluminium
And many natural currencies
But our people are dying from hunger and thirst
They are destroyed by simple illnesses like malaria, cholera and kwashiorkor
Because of a lack of current vaccinations

Oh! Oh! Sibonga kakhulu

I am from the land that people leave for peace and prosperity
Where human rights deteriorate day and night
Where people are thirsting for a bright future full of pay and prosperity

‘United we stand, divided we fall’

I have a dream that one day the suffering will end
And a new era full of joy and self-reliance will begin

Oh! Nkosi yami!
Sindisa abantu bakho
