Gangster Love (5)

By Ayanda Xaba, South Africa: My name is Wandile Sithole, 20 years from section D Ezakheni. I’m so happy to be here to see Mondli being taken by the police. I’ve been waiting for this day for three years now. I hate him with all my being. He deserves everything that’s going to happen to him in prison, no one […]

Gangster Love (4)

By Ayanda Xaba, South Africa: I am not a bad person; not by a long shot. I’m a 26-year-old decent guy, I’m a believer that goes to church regularly despite all the other things I may be engaging in. The car spinning thing is an adrenalin rush, a perfect sport. While people go for soccer or rugby, I Mondli Cele, […]

Gangster Love (3)

By Ayanda Xaba, South Africa: I left Mondli in a trance; he was going crazy and mumbling things I wasn’t interested in hearing. I managed to sneak out and find an open flat with an open door. I find an old woman baking; she is startled by my presence and almost drops her pan of muffins. I love muffins. She […]

Please Exaggerate – You’re probably right

By Spliph, South Africa: It's a dim Thursday morning, musky. The air is thick with the smell of the night rain. As usual, after the rain traffic is quite bad. The cars form a seemingly endless queue along a normally free but busy road. The traffic lights are flashing a red colour signalling they are offline and at the T-junction […]

Gangster Love (2)

By Ayanda Xaba, South Africa: After the miscarriage Mondli doubted me. He was always suspicious of me despite my best efforts to prove to him that there was no need for it. It seemed as though the baby left with all the trust in the relationship. I didn’t want a baby; I was too young and happy. I feel that […]

Gangster Love (1)

By Ayanda Xaba, South Africa: My whole body hurts, it feels as if a truck just rode over me. I open my eyes slowly; a huge part of me doesn’t want to see, I’m horrified of what I might find. I don’t remember where I am and why my body is in such pain. I want to cry but somehow […]

You People…!!!!!

By Spliph, South Africa: We all have unique problems, some more than others. But I believe my problems are of a microscopic rarity. It is for this reason I decided to write about some of them to see if anyone such as me is out there. People who say LOL. Not type it out, but say it verbally! Believe me, […]

The Fantasy

By Ayanda Xaba, South Africa: Wouldn’t it be nice if we could sketch the beginning and ending of our love lives? Being a writer, it would be so amazing to be able to write one's own life. Even though in this lifetime it could never happen, I will fantasize about my perfect guy: We met in town; I bumped into […]
