In the Inferno


by Jabulani Mzinyathi

In the Inferno is part of the continuum starting from the poetry collection Under the Steel Yoke right through to the collection entitled Along the Way. The out of control veld fire is raging in homes and threatens to devour whole nations. The simple yet incisive poems address issues such as corruption, misrule, tyranny and despotism. Some of the poems address the wars in Gaza and Ukraine. The turmoil in the DRC also receives attention. The poems would be a damp squib if the writer did not address the Mugabe legacy and its impact on this country, Zimbabwe, which the late President of Tanzania Julius Mwalimu Nyerere called 'a jewel? The poet takes a keen interest in world events but does not allow this to overshadow what he observes daily in his country of birth, Zimbabwe.
