ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Bathandwa Mcuba likens the social, moral and cultural landscape in South Africa to a never-ending evolving zone. A generation of technological advances, new priorities and influences, has created a devastation of sorts among people – particularly the youth as they struggle for identity.
Responses of despair and blame are common, yet Bathandwa, a visionary, community builder, spirit lifter, and a businesswoman is dedicated to rebuilding and helping people regain their identities. This includes providing hope to recipients of the Focus on Youth programme, a Non-Profit organization she founded with special focus on school children and young people. In 2012, she was appointed as the Chairperson of Mix Telematics BEE Trust Fund.
Bathandwa’s keen interests in arts and culture , traditional customs; African art, paintings, cuisine, fashion and dance has proved a great basis for her book, which in turn has become the perfect platform to showcase the root, the rib, and the rag of the authentic African.
Born and bred in the second largest township of South Africa Mdantsane and raised in the country that produced great leaders, King Shaka, King Machado, King Skhukhune, Queen Modjajdi, King Hintsa and many more. Bathandwa is following her calling to help rebuild the social, moral and cultural fibres of South Africa and Africa as a whole.
With strong support from her husband Dr. Mzimkhulu Mcuba, her family and friends, she is determined to succeed in changing the landscape of Africa and the World.
