About this book:

Written in Sesotho in 1909 and first translated in 1931, Thomas Mofolo's classic South African novel has formed the foundation of all modern interpretations of the Shaka legend. A modern tragedy and the first of its kind to mythologise the life of the Zulu Warrior King, Chaka tells the tragic story of a boy shunned by his father - a Zulu prince born out of wedlock who, through unbridled ambition, sorcery and sheer brutality, claims his rightful place as heir to the throne.
