Congratulations to our winners of the Africa Book Club Short Reads competition for October 2013. Mark Mngomezulu from Swaziland (pictured) is the winner of of our October Short Reads competition with his story, The Village Breadman. Mngomezulu, a previous finalist, beat out tight competition from the other finalists. His story, told simply and concisely, follows Manyosi as he goes about delivering bread to his customers. Manyosi is determined to improve his lot. He is working to save enough money so he can buy himself a small van in two years. Or so it seems, until another side of his personality unravels.
