Week 2

Wednesday, 17 May 2017

A few days ago I discovered that the Sangoma, the traditional healers who were living in the Valley,

and who partly inspired this project, have been kicked off their ancestral land.

I understand that a wealthy businessman bought the land in the Eastern Free State near the Lesotho border

and that the army and local police were instructed to move in to ensure that the Valley dwellers were

moved off.

If this is true, and apparently it is, it makes this book project even more urgent.

Displacement is at the heart of it and at the outset I had no idea that the story would come full circle.

Thanks to everyone who has pledged so far. I am overwhelmed by, and grateful for the support.

Please do share the link.
