The Language of Me

By Musa E. Zulu

Musa Zulu is well-known on the motivational circuit and for his role as Director of the KwaZulu-Natal "Asiphephe" Road Safety Campaign. Disabled in a car crash at the age of 23 at the height of a promising career, he found himself faced with one of the hardest challenges that life can bring. This is the story of his battle, not to overcome, but to fully embrace his disability, to look for the meaning in the tragedy and use its changes positively in service of a wider cause. With its inspiring narrative and "personal scrapbook" selection of sketches, poems and private reflections, it offers a frank and intimate portrait of life from a wheelchair perspective. It is, above all, a testament to courage and determination, from a man who recognizes no limitations in his quest for life's best and who, through his own remarkable success story, epitomizes the creed that disability need not be an impediment to life in the "first-class" lane.
