eMagqumeni (forthcoming, 2020)

A graphic novel by Nathi Ngubane.

eMagqumeni: Place Of the Hills is the story of a village nestled on the Wild Coast, between KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape. With its lush vegetation, beaches and valleys, but also its history of neglect and abandonment as a village far from the centres of power, eMagqumeni is both beautiful and despondent. It is the story of rural South Africa itself.

All these years after apartheid and the world has moved on, but in eMagqumeni, the basics have yet to arrive.
