for Segankuru / Segapa

The singer is reporting his cry and disappointment to Mama Ngelengele.  It is not known whether she is his biologically mother or just an elderly woman he takes comfort in.

He tells Mama Ngelengele whom she also calls Thembalam (my hope) that she is his last hope. He says he was trying to propose to a maiden but she spat saliva at him and it was a lot of saliva. He thought the hope he will find from his Cherry (slang name for girlfriend) was going to be a great adventure but the saliva communicates to him that he should not raise hopes as he is directly rejected.
