Apartheid Justice

A Prison Interview With Mzwakhe Mbuli

VV: What message would you like to convey?

MZ:This is an extract from one of my poems written behind bars, based on true facts:

My underpants pulled down
My private parts exposed
Is this a "New South Africa?"
Is this the "Rainbow Nation?"
My intelligence is beyond humiliation
My resilience is beyond malicious allegations
My spirit cannot be broken
I am vulgar-proof
No regime can take away my dignity
No police force can arrest my talents
Oh beloved South Africa
The truth is yet to come and the truth shall set
me free.
