Hikuya hi Henri Junod, Vatsonga a va teka nkarhi wavona ku pfelerisa byala bya Vusurha eka minsinya ya milala, ngopfungopfu a Pessene e Komati Poort, laha a tshameke nkarhinyana kona. Junod uhlamusele ndlela leyi byala lebyi abyi hlengeletiwa hayona:

"Khwati a ri tsemewa hi kuya hi tindhuna ta tiko, naswona ndhuna yin'wana na yin'wana yi hlengeleta Vusurha eka milala leyi nga e khwatini ra yona. Nsinya wa Mulala wuvatliwa hi le henhla, ivi andzhaku ka masiku yamune, wu ta vatliwa wu byekela ivi ku tsimbiwa xikhudya xankwakwa, leswaku xi hlengeleta Vusurha bya milala. Loko xikhudya xitele, n'wini wa xona u xiteka axihalatela eka Jomela ra yena ri kala ritala."[3]
