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).
