Mulamuleli Tshitangano (20), a second-year student at the Tshwane University of Technology, has published her second book, called Beauty with Scars.

Tshitangoni hails from Mutshenzheni. She started her schooling at Mutshenzheni Primary and completed her matric at Mutshutshu High.

Her first book, titled I shall find the light, was released in 2021. “It contains a series of emotions, penned down to reflect on the daily challenges in life. It consists of poems about love, betrayal, corruption, death, trials and tribulations, failure, encouragement, faith and hope, heartaches and break-ups,” Tshitangoni said.

Beauty with Scars is a non-fiction novel, categorised into six chapters that address various issues, such as women empowerment, gender-based violence, upbringing of young women and the challenges they face, and how women should find their strength within themselves. It also reprimands the act of faking abuse and challenges, and encourages independence in women.”

She says the book also corrects society’s idea of women and sets new standards for women. “The recurring public discourse in our society is that ‘men are trash’. The book outlines the root causes of gender-based violence in a fictional way,” she said.

Tshitangoni believes that she has always written in a way that makes her writing accessible to anyone. “Writing is the language of the heart. It enables me to share my thoughts with so many people at once,” she said. “Writing lives on forever as it is passed on from one generation to another. I enjoy writing because I feel I’m serving my purpose in life through it.”
