Freedom song from South Africa - in four parts.
Asikhatali noma si bowa sizimisel' in keluleko.
Chorus: Unzima lomthwalo ufuna madoda.
V2. Thina bantwana baze Afrika sizimisel' inkeluleko.
You can jail us but our spirits are free and we live in hope.
We walk a hard road but victory will be ours.
We are the children of Africa and we live in hope.
Although a song which was sung during the protest against apartheid regime in South Africa, the song still has a meaning today in many parts of the world.
