Khwezi Speaks

Tragic stories abound, in real life and in books. Some of the real life stories end up in books. One of these books is “Khwezi”. Khwezi is the name by which Fezekile Ntsukela Kuzwayo bggecame known in those heady days of 2005 when she had accused president Jacob Zuma of having raped her. In the end the president went scotfree.

For Khwezi the afterlife was not so easy. The followers of Zuma came after her and she fled the country (did she go to The Netherlands?). In 2016 Khwezi returned to South Africa and started talking to Redi Tlhabi. Shortly after telling her story Khwezi died. Redi finished the book and published it.

Here you will find an excerpt of the story.
