Talented writer and Grade 12 pupil at Bhukulani Senior secondary school in Zondi Soweto, Lindokuhle Sibeko, has begun living his dream of becoming an author and this, as he published his first book titled, “Indoda Ayikhali”: A syndrome that almost killed me.
Hailing from Jabulani in Soweto, 18 year old Sibeko is an emerging writer and a nature loving young man, who wants to make big changes in society and to uplift the young generation and in the process set his career goals to dizzying heights.
The book explores problems faced by young men from all walks of life, which lead them to committing gender based violence. “I wrote this book to change the perceptive of the society when it comes to masculinity. I want to make people aware that men also have emotions and should be allowed to also go through the healing process without being judged or overlooked.” Enthused Linda.
A go-getter with enormous ambitions, Sibeko hopes that one day he will reach international recognition and hopefully become one of the best motivational speakers in the country and the world at large. “I want to be a good role model to young people especially in the townships, be a mirror to them that any dream is achievable regardless of age, one’s background or circumstances.”
Sibeko’s vision is to study film and television production in the following year whilst further developing his writing.
“I’m planning to embark on a massive book tour around the country, and also help young writers who want to publish their own books.”
The book is available for purchase at lifestyle book stores in Maponya and Westgate malls. For more information people should contact Lindokuhle Sibeko on 0749757506 or visit his Facebook page @Lindokuhle Sibeko.
