The man behind the street

- Wits University Press

Wits University Press published Professor Benedict Vilakazi’s first book of poems, the first poetry ever published in isiZulu.

Subsequently, it published a volume Amal’eZulu, as well as the first Zulu-English Dictionary, which Vilakazi compiled in collaboration with CM Doke. Vilakazi has been posthumously awarded with the National Order of Ikhamanga (Gold).

Wits University Press writes on its BOOKSlive blog about Vilakazi’s remarkable achievements while at Wits University.
