‘I mention Sol Plaatje as an example of the ability to weave between the different languages and cultures, and to contribute through writing, literature and journalism, to the betterment of the lives of South Africans.’ – Professor Kader Asmal
Mhudi is a historical romance of epic scale that tells the story of a courageous and beautiful Barolong woman who risks her life to save her husband. The story is set in the 1830s, during the time of Matabele Chief, Mzilikazi’s attempt at exterminating the Barolong people.

Considered to be a very important contribution to early South African literature, Mhudi is believed to be the first English novel written by a black South African.
