Mathews Phosa: I Wrote these Poems about Our Struggle – as it was Unfolding (Podcast)

Chants of FreedomMathews Phosa, businessman, politician and poet, was recently featured on SAfm‘s Afternoon Talk to speak about his newest publication Chants of Freedom: Poems Written in Exile.

Phosa says: “I wrote these poems about our Struggle – as it was unfolding”. The poetry is all his own work, and he says continues to write poetry every day.

“I think whenever a writer writes,” Phosa says, “it’s to share your inner soul with your fellow men and women”.

In these poems, Phosa shares his perspective on the things he experienced in Angola, and the mixed feelings he had about being there.
