Mfundi Vundla to produce historical Xhosa drama

Mfundi Vundla Xhosa drama

Generations The Legacy creator Mfundi Vundla is currently writing a historical Xhosa drama to be aired on M-Net.

According to TshisaLIVE, the producer was recently approached by the broadcaster to create a pre-colonial drama. He chose to craft the series around the book House of Phalo by South African writer J. B. Peires.

The book tells the story of the rise of the 18th century Xhosa kingdom under Phalo and their way of life prior to colonialism.

“I want to tell a story before conquest. To show that Africa existed long before the white man arrived. That the white man was the one who was seen as uncivilised. I want to show that Africa before colonisation was a place of beauty and industry. More than that, I want Africans to know that our history started before the white man and before oppression.”

“There is so much content produced and this is so different to all of those. It is not about competing. It is about educating,” – Vundla said.
