    Chaka, authored by Thomas Mofolo in , remains one of the most widely read Sesotho books. The Journalist this week reflects on the life of a literary giant whose works were translated in many languages. Some missionaries were of the view that his celebration of African culture would ‘drive Africans back to Satan’.
