it is nonsensical to say

Here is another chapter in the ongoing debate sparked off by Thando Mgqolozana at the Franschhoek Literary Festival (South Africa), recently held. Or was it it sparked off by the Festival itself, being part of a certain system and setting and legacy? 

A #LitApartheid meeting was held with more speakers and listeners and debaters to talk about the litarary system (whatever colour or shape) and the future of writing and publishing and reading and audiences in South Africa. 

Thando Mgqolozana was present and Ben Williams and Eusebius Kaiser and Siphiwo Mahal and a host of others.
