Joseph Keulekani Mguni grew up in the south of Zimbabwe. He gives a fascinating account of his tribal past – his ancestors came from Zululand and their king was head of the regiment of Shacka. He talks about his schooling there, and the opportunities that came his way. In 2000 he emigrated, first to London, and then to Dublin. He talks frankly about the harrowing experiences he endured when he arrived at the airport, the ordeal which led him to the city of Kilkenny and the ease with which he has settled in the community there.
