Rycroft, David, 1924-1997 (speaker, male)
Rycroft questions whether 'Hemuhemu' was the grandfather of the present chief (Mangosuthu Gatsha Buthelezi). The praiser announces that he will give the praises for his father Chief Langalakhe (maybe the praiser is Mangosuthu Buthelezi, although his voice sounds quite different).
