Cont Mhlanga, a fine fount of knowhow,
Words, words are not adequate to describe how
You lived and touched the lives of many a soul,
May your lovely legacy of insight live and console,
A visionary, founder of Amakhosi Theatre Productions,
May your works speak to us and to the future generations.
You were not only a celebrated playwright and director,
But also a peerless jet of inspiration to many a soul,
A passionate protector of history and heritage, a daring defender
Of the defenseless and voiceless whose modesty was a splendor,
Words are not enough to define your larger-than life resourcefulness,
In the fullness of time, legends don’t die, they repose in fruitfulness.
