Focus on SA History: Prof Marwala talks about King Makhado Ramabulana

Prof Marwala recently addressed the audience attending the book discussion dedicated to King Makhado Ramabulana. The book written by Mphaya Nemudzivhadi traces the life and times of King Makhado and his refusal to carry the colonial and imperial yoke from 1864-1895. This wildly researched book goes a long way in providing valuable information about South African History. Dr Simphiwe Nojiyeza, HOD Anthropology and Development Studies, gave a detailed analysis of the book and its relevance in today’s context. Some members of the Ramabulana descendants were present and contributed to the discussion. Remani Mulangaphuma represented the publishing house, Dzuvha Publishers. Rendani Ladzani, daughter of the author, thanked the audience on behalf of her father.
