This incredible work has been commissioned (part of the Suidoosterfees 2016) to celebrate the life and work of the late Professor Jakes Gerwel ( the former chairman of Media24, former rector of the University of Western Cape and the director general of former President Nelson Mandela’s cabinet). Kristalvlakte will serve as a creative and literary monument honoring Jakes Gerwel’s memory.
From the shreds of the constant drug war, dealer Priscilla is trying to keep her family and life together. The community is bleeding due to the interference of political orders, gang bosses and religious leaders. Sometimes there are waves of peace, as in any good war. But war is like love – it will always find a way out. And while life goes on Priscilla’s drug dealings will survive in the backstreets of time.
