Poetry Corner

A bit of culture for you today folks, courtesy of South African poet and performer Mzwakhe Mbuli.

Mr Mbuli is definitely a member of the firebrand wing of the poetry party. Under the apartheid regime his records were often banned and he himself frequently detained. He also spent three years in prison at the turn of the century for armed robbery, although he and his supporters claim this was a trumped up charge and that he was being punished for speaking up against corruption. 

How unlike the home life of our own Pam Ayres.
