Yakhal' inkomo ... Mongane Wally Serote

"I do not know where I have been
But Brother,
I know I am coming"

A man committed to leave footprints of a new sense of spirituality and moral rediscovery in South Africa. Mongane Wally Serote spent his lifetime expressing the injustices and harsh realities of life for black people under apartheid. His work has inspired, and continues to inspire generations of youth throughout South Africa, Africa and the world. His contribution to the South African literary arena has been invaluable. His thought-provoking poetry not only expressed the effects that oppression had on South Africans, but it also stands as a timeless body of work that marks an important period in South Africa’s history.

Dr Mongane Wally Serote starts 2 ...

Serote was appointed CEO of Freedom Park to oversee the construction, a national monument, situated in Tshwane, for the heroes and heroines who died in defence of South Africa and in the struggle for freedom. He has also served as chair of the parliamentary select committee for arts and culture. 

Serote's work as poet, novelist and healer is far from over. Today he focuses his energy on sustainability and the challenges we face to create a sustainable South Africa. A wonderful honour to listen to the wisdom and insights of a remarkable man.
