Wayehlala esedlula abantwana bonke ayefunda labo kuzo zonke izifundo ayezenza. Wayengumtwana owayethanda iskolo njalo ebonakala sengathi uzoba lekusasa eliqhakazile. Okwethusa abantu yikuthi uThuli kenelisanga ukubhala umatikuletsheni. Yena labanengi ababefunda laye abazange bakuzwisise ukuthi kungani abaphathi besikolo esisedolobheni leGoli benqaba ukuthi abhale. UThuli akalaye umazisi waseNingizimu Africa kumbe ipasipoti yaseZimbabwe okulilizwe la azalelwa khona. UThuli njengenengi labantu belizwe laseZimbabwe wawela umgcele ohlukanisa lamazwe omabili ngendlela engekho emthethweni eleminyaka elitshumi.

Kwasekungathi ngiyajeziswa ngoba ngifuna ukwenza into eqondileyo. Abemnyango wezekhaya babethi ngingathola iphemithi nxa sengilomsebenzi ikanti abaqatshi babefuna ngiqale ngibe lephemithi ukuze banginike umsebenzi ngoba bethi licala elibomvu ukuqatsha umuntu ongelaphemithi.

Lasemsebenzini amakhiwa angibhadala imali encane ngoba besazi ukuthi angilawo amaphepha angigunyaza ukuthi ngibeseNingizimu Africa."

UThuli uthi "Ngahlukumezeka kakhulu ngesikhathi ngitshelwa ukuthi ngeke ngibhale imihloliso. Ngazibuza ukuthi yindaba lento iyenzakala kimi ngoba angizikhethelanga ukuza lapha ngokungekho emthethweni angonanga lutho mina engikufunayo yikufunda nje kuphela."  UThuli uqhubeke wathi "Umama uyazisola ngokuza lami kuleli lizwe.
