His Story is History

Rural Village Future through the Eyes of a Rural Village Boy

By Tlou Setumu

How many doors have been slammed in one's face in this world? How many doors does one find closed? Yet, while wasting time in front of a closed door, other doors are waiting to be opened. Told in fascinating detail, this memoir is a chronicle of the fight against poverty towards a life of achievement. Having endured a lifetime of struggle, from childhood on into his adult life, Tlou Setumu shares with readers a personal account of his rural and urban experiences in South Africa. Not one to shy away from asking deep-seated questions, Setumu explores the myth that poverty and rural life are synonymous. He looks for answers to this human quandary in a broader context of human existence, not accepting the condition as a given. The book shows how he ended up playing a valuable role in the preservation of heritage in South Africa's Limpopo Province. In spearheading the development of heritage, Setumu has left a personal legacy which stands as an example to his community.
