Fred Khumalo’s debut isiZulu fiction title, uManzekhofi nezaKhe is a witty and whimsical collection of interconnected short stories that centre around a house-cat, Manzekhofi, and the Sibiya household he lives in.

Inspired by Geraldine Elliott’s The Long Grass Whispers, uManzekhofi nezaKhe is a book written to entertain a new generation of readers with Fred Khumalo’s renowned and timeless humour and his insight into current-day South Africa.

Fred Khumalo is best known as an award-winning journalist and author. In particular his English novels Seven Steps to Heaven, Bitches’ Brew, Dancing the Death Drill have all received critical acclaim.

Kwakungcono eGibhithe, a short story contained in uManzekhofi nezaKhe was published in 2017 in the isiZulu speculative fiction anthology, Izinkanyezi Ezintsha by Kwasukela Books, and was featured on the Johannesburg Review of Books.
