I am a member of a big family, at the moment I live with my grandmother, two sisters, four cousins, two aunts and an uncle. I live in a township called Umlazi at the M section. The above family tree represents my mother’s side. My grandmother’s name before she was married was N.R Thwala and was born around 1950’s.
She lived in Lamontville. My grandfather’s name was T.Cele and he was born and raised in a rural place called Enkandla. My grandfather moved to Glebelands where he met my grandmother and they got married. They have six children which were ironically all girls and no boys. They first born is my oldest aunt Simangele Thwala followed by Maye Thwala. Their third child is Tholi and she is married to Vezi family. Their fourth child is my mother and her full names are Lungile Ngane Cele. Their fifth child is Zamandosi Precious Cele and their last born is Zikhona Penelope Cele.
Unfortunately my grandfather died before I could see him, I was their first grandchild and currently they have 10 grandchildren and we are expecting another addition. My mother have three children and I am the first born, her second child is my sister Lindelwa Cele and her last born so far is Natalia Londiwe Chiliza. Ever since I was born we lived in the same township.
