Vuyiswa will share with you her personal life story.

Vuyiswa’s history has been hugely impacted by race, fighting and war. This has led her to contest a fierce and brutal system and to question the power of political and economic control, the influence of skin colour, the building of narratives and concepts of persecution and respect. She has embarked on a journey around the globe in search of her truth, and it is in Africa where she found it.


Vuyiswa Zizipho Ke-tu-rah Dhlamini Kush was born in Soweto. Her family was displaced and at 8 years old Vuyiswa was rescued and taken to a safe house in Botswana. She is a product of Solomon Mahlangu Freedom College of Education (SOMFACO) in Mazimbu, Tanzania and received Political & Military Education in Angola, Cuba, Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia and East Germany. She graduated at Patrice Lumumba University (Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia) with a Political Science Degree in International Relations and a Masters in Media Studies from the University of Cambridge.
