The author in this short parable-like story provides lessons of life in an African rural set-up that touches on core human values (love, respect, Ubuntu, generosity, perseverance, hard work, trustworthiness, courage, faith and hope) in a story form. He makes good use of the African tradition of using stories to espouse and encourage people especially the young to observe these values.

It is easy for this parable like short-story novel to be mistaken for a children’s book. While tragic in many ways, the story in this book teaches of hope, renewal, commitment and the power of forgiveness. The author writes from the African renaissance perspective and uses the story to carry readers through generational struggles, conflicts, hurts, successes and triumphs.

Although this book is intended to be a teaching tool rather than a novel, we do still relate to the characters and their lives. Thus aspects such as the development and descriptions of characters – protagonists and antagonists are not as important. What the characters do is more important and we learn from their trials and successes. The story offers an enjoyable insight into the African village cultural traditions and the dangers and beauty of wildlife in the African countryside. Human nature is human nature and wherever one might find oneself, the central questions and dilemmas are universal and the ethical aspects that arise from the story bear reflecting upon whatever tradition one is from.

About the Author


I am a married father of two teenagers, an author and an entrepreneur. My passion is on seeing others empowered and effective in pursuing their management and financial acumen. I strongly believe that true education empowers people to think independently and critically and helps them to perform according to their God given potential. Everything I write about is connected to the development of an individual relating to personal and business development and financial independence and this is the agenda my company is driving. I have written two books on small business development and one novel on determination, courage and hope. The three books are intended to help build balance in the individual as they begin their journey of financial emancipation. My passion extends to junior managers development and I am currently working on a model for this course. I am an MBA graduate with 17 years banking experience served with 3 major South African Banks at different management levels.


I am passionate about people and their success in life and motivated by those who remain humble in the mist of thunderous successes. I am inspired by the resilient nature of the human mind, potent with power unimaginable to achieve things that even those possessing it cannot begin to fathom.
