Gabriel Kutama, an elderly illegal from across the border, is mugged at a Soweto taxi rank. He ends up at the house of Portia, a single mother who tends to his bruises. She allows him to stay on in a room at the back of her house.
But Gabriel is no ordinary man, for he is the former President of the country north of the South African border, presumed dead after a military coup. His wife has fled to London with their three children.
Speaking as I Want is the outcome of conversations between a father (lecturer) and a daughter (student) on life and living in a period of intellectual uncertainty within and outside of universities. It seeks to provoke wider reflection on the way we live and the narratives that currently influence us.
‘Mama…where is my Daddy?’
As a single mother Thuli has always tried to do her best for her daughter, living each day with the legacy of her past. But even she may not be able to give Lesedi the one thing she really needs. Unless life with its unexpected twists and turns finds a way to provide.
A tale of love and lies, hopes and dreams.
From the author of Gabriel’s Apology.
