That was the takeaway from last Saturday’s edition of the RE: TUAL. Titled ‘The compelling story of Kinjeketile Ngwale’ the RE: TUAL paid homage to the spiritual backbone of the Maji Maji rebellion. The results of the rebellion might not have been the greatest representation of the African willpower but the soul clearly reverberates over 100 years later.

Music was played, rugs were cut and maybe in this ‘post-racial’ world we live in Kinjeketile Ngwale’s is more relevant than ever.
