A song in South African sign??

Hello Signwriters:
It has been a long while since I've posted to the list! My ASL studies
continue, although not within a formal interpreter-training program,
alas. But all the same, I am developing an ASL version of my chorus'
five standing-repertory songs, with plenty of advice from fluent
ASL-speaking Deafies in my area. (My hard-of-hearing ears wanna
vacation from singing!)
So, here is my query.
One of these songs, "Singabahambayo", has its first verse sung
entirely in Zulu before we go into English translation of its first
and second verses. Are any of you Signwriters able and/or willing to
transcribe a version of this song's first verse in South African
Sign?? Does it already have an established Sign form? I have no idea
how many deaf folk got involved with the South African freedom
movement ...
