Duodecimo in brown and orange wrappers (orange spine) with pink illus. on cover; b&w illus.; 332 pp., 18 cm. In English. 'Credo Vuzamazulu Mutwa is a practicising witch-doctor in a township outside Johannesburg. Brought up as a Christian, he has now returned to the faith of his ancestors. Through his mother he claims descent from the witch-doctor of Dingana, Shaka's brother. The African's history of Africa has, hitherto, existed only in the oral tradition. Credo Mutwa's purpose is to take the oral traditions of southern Africa and record them before they are lost forever. He writes about many things including the Phoenician, Portuguese and Arab presence in Africa and the legends of the building of Zimbabwe. He gives an original account also of the killing of the Voortrekker hero, Piet Retief." -back cover.
