GUEST moona magolo, thank you for your 27 Aug 09 - 09:52 PM post.

I'am sure that other Mudcat members and guests join me in welcoming you to this forum, if indeed this is your first time posting here. Comments such as yours are one of the reasons why reading Mudcat Discussion Forum threads can be such a culturally enriching experience.

I respectfully request that you share on this thread your translation of the words to "Nkose Sikelele Africa" or that you post a hyperlink to an online page where your Rnglish and Dutch translations can be found.

Although I don't know Dutch, other people who read this thread now and in the future could indeed know that language. And having found this thread, they should be able to have access to a version of "Nkose Sikelele Africa" that is more than the "kitchen versions" that you said used to be the only versions of this important song
that used to be available in the Dutch language.

Thank you, "moona magolo" for caring about this song,

Azizi Powell
