Dube is the name of a popular township in Soweto, but on a larger scale Dube is a well-known Nguni surname.

This is an exploration of the story of the Dube Township, Soweto’s own zebra.

 
 

BOOK REVIEWS

I recently added a new title to my library, an old book with the quaint title of "A Winter Tour of South Africa". This is a first edition, published in London in 1890. It is an account of travels through South Africa by the distinguished writer and traveller, Fredrick Young.
