Lindiwe Mabuza Makes Another Mark with Footprints and Fingerprints

Footprints and FingerprintsLindiwe MabuzaFootprints and Fingerprints by Lindiwe Mabuza is a collection of poems by a renowned South African – an activist, poet and diplomat who is known as Her Excellency at her office in South Africa House, London, where she is the country’s UK High Commissioner.
