The book, “Sound and Fury: The Chronicles of Healing” by Saul Molobi, Jambo Africa Online’s Publisher, is the first in a series to be published by the Brandhill Africa group. Although it is set in a rehabilitation hospital where the author spent a year as a context, it narrates his life as an anti-apartheid activist, brand architect and South Africa’s Consul-General to Milan, Italy from March 2012 to end June 2016. Saul Molobi: The author delivering inspiration in the midst of catastrophe
The “Foreword” to the book was written by H.E. Mr Kgalema Motlanthe, the former President of the Republic of South Africa. The e-book version is already available on Amazon.
This is what the former President has written: “A work of a genuine wordsmith, the book is very eloquently written. Effortlessly, it blends moments of deep sadness, despair and hopelessness with moments of great inspiration, hope, jubilation and even humour. It is a work of literary genius by a great storyteller.
“The book is a reminder that our liberation struggle drew overwhelming support from ordinary men and women whose stories are yet to be told.
“Comrade Saul has told his story. May his work inspire others to also chronicle their life stories in the fight against apartheid and in serving our country.”
*** Veteran journalist and author, Len Kalane ***
Another riveting review came from Len Kalane, former Editor-in-Chief of City Press and author of the recently published book, “The Chapter we Wrote: The City Press Story”, reviewed the book:
“The book, how shall I put it (?), is a complete epitome of applied oxymoron – in presentation, experience and expression and above all, its unalloyed honesty and sincerity; low on ego and high on substance. It is the little book big on matter, a simple and humbled narrative without being simplistic. Except that it is all so real, painful and sometimes delightful in execution reminding us we are all so vulnerable, owing our being, welfare and existence to very powerful forces and energies that are frighteningly so invincible and untouchable, yet so powerful, unleashing and delivering their message, power and strength in a merciless and often grotesque display and show of love. That’s the paradox. God takes us through pain and misery to demonstrate love.
“The book’s narrative is drawn from an interesting triangle: You, family and the hospital, and by extension humanity – all so well woven to tell a tale of the little things we so often take for granted. You are a master story teller. I now have more respect, more than ever, for your wife Tshepo. May God bless you two even in more ways – your letter to God will soon be answered. Watch the postman! You have met your Damascus, a modern day Saul to Paul situation. Indeed meet this new soul (this new Saul)!
“By the way Pompei was felled by a volcano, not earthquake. Remember also: Airports Company South Africa, not Airports Company of South Africa. There are other small irritants, minor but crucial to correct over a bottle of something. God Bless, a gallant victory my man.”

The book is ideal for those who are experiencing the worst moments in their lives – be they a health catastrophe; challenges at work; generally the challenges of adulting; or how one can triumph over adversity when the odds are against them. It is also relevant to those interested in knowing how ordinary youth contributed to the struggle against apartheid. The book is ideal as a gift donation to libraries in our communities and hospitals to help develop a sense of inspiration and hope among our people.
