“Ngiyalizwa Izwi Lomntanami” (I could hear the voice of my child)

Sunday, January 1, 2012 | Florence Mdlolo | Books

Florence Mdlolo participated in the Amazwi Abesifazane Memory Cloth project and fulfilled her dream of writing a book about her life. This book is illustrated by embroideries made by Florence where she embodies her captivating text highlighting the political tensions between the ANC and IFP  and how it impacted on her and her communities lives. She did this with needle and thread, colour and creativity. Shortly after her marriage to Eric Mthembu and the completion of her creative work, she died prematurely from an asthma attack as she was unable to attain timeous medical assistance. At the time, she resided in  Ndwedwe, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.
