Prologue by Adv. Vuyani Ngalwana SC

Thamsanqa D. Malinga on how township life has led black people to view themselves as 'non-deserving'.

"Blame Me on Apartheid is a hugely welcomed contribution towards blacks' self-understanding. The township is a place of death where blacks were abandoned to as surplus labour, readily available to white interests. This book opens another window into understanding how we arrived here and what we need to do to get out." Andile Mngxitama, President of the Black First Land First Party

Thamsanqa D. Malinga was born in Soweto in 1976. He works as a corporate affairs practitioner in Johannesburg, blogs for BizCommunity and News24, and produced a talk show for online radio CliffCentral called DISRUPT with Mpumi Nhlapo.
