Ubaguzi wa ukaburu
(Apartheid in the Boerland)

nimeona
nimeshuhudia
nimeonana uso kwa uso
nimeteseka
nimesononeka
nimekosa ujasiri
wa kudadisi
ubaguzi wa ukaburu
uko hai
uko salama

Apartheid in the Boerland

I saw
I witnessed
Confronted face to face
I suffered
I grieved
I had no courage
I dared not question
Apartheid in boerland
Is alive
Is kicking
