A special 24 December

The celebration was held at Tshutshutshu High school in Maphumulo on 24 December 2017. The Ngcamu family said that it is a great joy that they still have mkhulu Fanyana Ngcamu in the family; he is still as strong as a young man. In his speech Mr Ngcamu highlighted things which “made him strong” until this time as healthy food and the respect for older people. He knows the whole history of the Ngcamu clan and he also fought in the Khahlambeni war in the early 1950’s. He was also the Induna (headman) of the Ngubane clan which was at that time led by Chief Ntandoyenkosi Ngubane. He then urged the youth to refrain from using drugs alcohol and live a moral life he said: "I have lived this long because I respected everyone, even a child".
