Profile Information

Vukulu Sizwe Maphindani is an activist, philosopher, public speaker whom subscribes to Garveyism - Marcus Garvey's Pan African Philosophies.   I'm 26, was born in a rural village at the side of Kruger National Park, South Africa. Was born in a Royal family of Maphindani of the Mdluli clan. I was born with three of my only brothers by a Pastor who have been a former struggle Veteran and a mother whom was a former Slave of the Ooisthuizen family in Pietersburg in the 60's. I grew up doing debates at school and was interested in so doing while at home I was taught a strong moral conduct and socially structured behaviour by both My loving parents. I now live In Johannesburg, South Africa. I started my writing career when I was 18 through poems and the unpublished book titled: The weapon of life. At the same age I also fell in love with watching Martin Luther king Jr.', Steve Biko and Malcolm X's videos on net and also to read Auto biographies of Che Guevara, Marcus Garvey, Karl Marx, John Locke, Stanley Cohen etc.. And because I grew up in a community which I felt was and still is irresponsible (South Africa) I then took my time to understand what being a Human is. The book titled Message to a Blackman in Africa took me 3 years of questioning the society I live in and another three years to write. It comes after a journey of self-discovery and public consciousness. I'm one who believes that there are no Black or White people but rather Africans and Caucasians.
