Local releases 2nd book

MBEKWENI- Bongi Nkosi from Mbekweni has just finished writing his second book.

The 33-year-old matriculated in 2004, after which he studied law at the University of Johannesburg, but dropped out in his final year for financial reasons.

“I then moved to Mbekweni, Paarl and found a job in Wellington, where I worked as a waiter. A few years later I tried to get back into university, and the Stellenbosch University accepted me, but unfortunately, I did not have enough money to pay the registration fee, and as a result I could not continue with my studies.”

In 2014 he married Omuhle, and a year later they had a daughter.

“My wife advised me to go back to university, and in 2017 I began my business science degree at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, which I finished in 2019. Currently I am doing my BCom (Honours) in Management at the same institution. We are studying online now due to the nationwide lockdown.

“Because of the struggles I had to endure in my life I decided to write an autobiography entitled Resilience: The Story of an African Child. I started this book in 2010, and just finished writing it in May 2020.”

Bongi, who is not working, could not raise money to publish the book, but lockdown induced him to write a second book, entitled Visionary Leadership.

Available in PDF format, it focuses on the qualities of a leader, such as having vision, courage, humility, resilience, integrity, knowledge, understanding and wisdom. He said before his father died in 2006 he told him he was going to be an author. On Father’s Day this year Bongi started promoting Visionary Leadership.
