Nanjengoko sele zivaliwe izikolo abantwana batyelela rhoqo iqula lokudada. Abo baneminyaka emihlanu ubudala ukuya kwesibhozo beza nabazali babo ukwenzela ukuba bakwazi ukubabeka phantsi kweliso elibukhali.

Abantwana badiza ukuba abavuyeli ukudlala nje ngamanzi kuphela koko bayafunda ukudada. Eliqula nelizinze kufuphi nenkundla kamantyi eKhayelitsha kungena rhoqo kulo abantwana abaqikelelwa ngaphaya kwamawaka amathathu anamashumi amahlanu ngosuku.

Abantwana xa bengena kweliqula lokudada bahlawula ishumi elinesheleni ezintlanu iR1.50c ukutsho oko. Abantu abadala bengena ngerandi ezintandathu iR6.00. Eliqula lamkela abantwana abaphuma kwingingqi ezingqonge iKhayelitsha bambi kubo basuka kwindawo ezithe qelele ezifana nelokishi yaseDelft. Iqula lokudada eKhayelitsha lilo lodwa kulengingqi kwaye laqala ukusebenza ngonyaka 2001 neliqhuba kakuhle kakhulu kukhuselelo labantwana emanzini nanjengoko zinqongophelo iziganeko zorhaxwa kwabantwana emanzini.

Ukwathi bayanikezela ngezifundo zokudada nakubantu abadala. Ekwatsho nakanjalo ukuba bakhuthaza uluntu ukuba luthathe inxaxheba kwizifundo zokudada ngelithi bazama kangangoko ukuzama nokusiphula nengcambu intetho ethi abantu abaNtsundu bayawoyika amanzi yaye abakwazi kudada.

Kungokunje uthi lisavaliwe iqula lokudada abantwana abaphakathi kwesihlanu ukuya kwiminyaka esibhozo ubudala nanjengoko kusaqhutyekwa nomsebenzi wokulungiswa kwalo. Oku kukhokelele ukuba kwehliswe umthamo wamanzi kwiqula labadala elisebenzayo ukuzama ukulungiselela abo baselula ngokweminyaka. OkaMayedwa wongeze ngelithi basajongene nenani elikhulu labantwana abeza kweliqula mihla le nanjengoko kungekho qula limbi ngaphandle kweli apha eKhayelitsha.
