You are not just the hero but a father of the Nation
You are not just the man of the struggle but the Chief of the Nation
You are not just the man who just brought us freedom
But you are the man who also brought us wisdom
Today you are resting there in that lonely cold place
But you are not just there like others
You are there because of your good deeds,
Yes, you are the father indeed

You may rest in peace but you are still with us in our hearts
Tata ngenene ungumzekelo
kuba wena ulikhulule ilizwe lethu kwinkqubo yeNgcinezelo

You are one of our heroes
and losing you felt like losing a very expensive necklace
Why father, why did you leave this sad space?
If there was another plan
I would ask God to give you another chance
