  • R 25000

Written in Sesotho in 1909 and first translated in 1931, Thomas Mofolo's classic South African novel has formed the foundation of all modern interpretations of the Shaka legend. A modern tragedy and the first of its kind to mythologise the life of the Zulu Warrior King, Chaka tells the tragic story of a boy shunned by his father a Zulu prince born out of wedlock who, through unbridled ambition, sorcery and sheer brutality, claims his rightful place as heir to the throne. This edition features Daniel P. Kunene's modern English translation, an introduction by the translator and a brand-new foreword by Wamuwi Mbao.
