Hadzhi launches his fourth book


Jerry Hadzhi from Murunwa launched his fourth book, titled “Lwendo lwa Lwendo,” in Biaba, Nzhelele, on 20 September. While he previously focused on poetry, his latest offering is a novel. The book tells the story of a young girl who endures significant hardships in life but never lets go of her will to survive and succeed. It serves as an encouragement to the younger generation, reminding them that, even when life is tough, they should not allow any situation to defeat them.

Hadzi is a teacher at Dzata Secondary School. He began his own education at Nyatema Primary School and later graduated from Mathede Secondary School. He holds a B. Ed honours degree in school management. His writing talent was recognised as early as Grade 10 when he wrote a poem titled “The White Dress,” which was published in “African Anthropology”. His passion for writing was inspired by his high school English teacher, Mrs Sarah Ramatshimbila.

In 2000, he published a book titled “Episode Craft,” and in 2021, he published two poetry books titled “Tsha Tswiwana” and “The Voice of Africa”. These two poetry books earned him a nomination for Best Male Author in the African Print and Poetry Association (APAPA) competition.

Hadzi is not only an author but also a motivational speaker, life coach, and mentor for many young learners, helping them pursue their dreams. He believes in the contemporary youth, who do not just wait for things to happen but actively make things happen.
