ESAKHULA kwakuthi uma kuvalwe izikole kubo baye epulazini likayisemkhulu owayemfundisa ukusenga nokulusa izinkomo, nokulapho lwaqala khona uthando lwakhe lwezolimo.

UNksz uNomonde Ncongwane, oneminyaka ewu-32, wumsunguli we-Agricultural Processing Solutions efuya izingulube nezikhukhu zenyama nezamaqanda. Udayisa nenyama esihlinziwe yapakishwa kahle.

UNksz uNcongwane udabuka KwaManzini, eSwatini, kodwa usezinze eMalahleni, eMpumalanga, lapho ipulazi lakhe likhona.  

Nakuba asheshe wabona ukuthi uyazithanda ezolimo kodwa waqale wathi ngqu kwezinye izinto ngaphambi kokuzinikela kuzona. “Ngangingenalo iphupho eliqondile… nesikole ngangingasithandi uma nje ngingakhuluma iqiniso,” kusho yena.

Kuthe emva kweminyaka embalwa enza lokhu nalokhuya wazithola esesebenza embonini yezokuthutha.

“Yize ngabhalisa inkampani ngo-2015 kodwa ngiqale ukuba wusomabhizinisi kahle ngo-2018. Enye into loko okungifundise kona wukuthi ukubhalisa inkampani akusho ukuba wusomabhizinisi. Uyadinga ukuzihlela, emva kokwenze njalo ngakwazi ukuheha abatshalimali ngoba kunzima ukuxhaswa ngemali uma ufika eNingizimu Afrika.  

“Ngathenga izingulube ezimithi, okwakuzothi uma sezizele ngizikhulise bese ngiyazidayisa. Ngenkathi ngiqala ngoba ngangingenawo umhlaba, ngangiziqashele epulazini lomuntu engangizithenge kuyena. Ngaleso sikhathi ingulube yayiwuR4 000 iyodwa. Ukuze kube lula ngangimnika nemali yokuzinakekela njengeyemithi nokudla. Kusho ukuthi waba nezinkinga ngoba wagcina engiqolile, wazidayisa zonke izingulube zami eziyisishiyagalombili ezazimithi. Ingulube iyodwa izala okungenani izingulube eziwu-15.

Yize umbono wawusekhona kodwa umdlandla wehla kancane. Waphuma ezingulubeni, wathenga izinkomo ezimithi namathole, nakhona ngenhloso yokuwakhulisa bese eyawadayisa.

Uthi: “Ngikwenze loko iminyaka emibili kodwa akunayo inzuzo etheni. Izinkomo azifani nezinkukhu ezilungela ukudayiswa emva kwamasonto ayisithupha. Azifani futhi nezingulube ezilungela  ukudayiswa emva kwezinyanga eziyisithupha. Kumele ulinde unyaka nohhafu ukuze ubone into oyenzayo.”

Nokho kulo nyaka uzidayisile zonke izinkomo njengoba esebuyele kwakuzwa ngaphakathi – izingulube. Zikhona nezinkukhu.
