Ngo-2016 uNtshumayelo wamiswa iminyaka emine engalithinti ibhola ngemuva kokutholakala nesidakamizwa i-cocaine egazini lakhe.

Ngaleso sikhathi wayesemabhukwini e-Orlando Pirates eyabe isiyinqamula inkontileka yakhe.

“Kwangithatha unyaka ukuthi ngamukele isimo sami. Ngalahlekelwa izimoto zami ngoba bese ngingenawo umholo. Umndeni wami, intombi yami, ozakwethu nezinye izinkakha yibona abebengigqugquzela. Ngake ngacabanga nokuzibulala kodwa umndeni walokhu uqhubekile nokungeseka. Bangenza ngakhohlwa ngokuthi ngizibulale. Manje sengiwumuntu oqine kakhulu kunakuqala. UNkulunkulu mkhulu ngabe angikho lapha ngaphandle kwakhe,” kusho uNtshumayelo.

“Ngiyajubula ngokuthi yize zahamba izimoto kodwa ngakwazi ukugcina umuzi wami. Zathathwa izimoto ngoba ngangisakwazi ukuzikhokhela. Kwakubuhlungu kakhulu. Umntwana wami uyena ongenza ngizihluphe ngokuba yisibonelo esihle. Ngifuna ukudlala ibhola kwiPSL futhi kuyangijabulisa ukuthi sengizokwenza into engiyithandayo,” kusho uNtshumayelo.

Uthe bakhona asebemthintile ukuzwa ukuthi angakwazi yini ukuzihlanganisa nabo.

“Angisakwazi ukulinda ukubuyela ensimini. Okuhle wukuthi iminyaka isangivuna.”
