I thought we have to put up onto the agenda for discussion, who we are as African people, what are our value systems and what we need to do with them.Pitika Ntuli, Poet, sculptor, writer and academic
In carving these 45 bones, each and every bone has got its own poems. In Africa when you throw bones, you are divining the state of things. I am divining the state of our environment, our politics, our education ... practically everything that defines us or is supposed to define who we are.Pitika Ntuli, Poet, sculptor, writer and academic
