    It has been quite some time since I read Credo Vusa'mazulu Mutwa's 'My People, My Africa', and I gather that he's advocated for some rather... interesting positions on quite a variety of subjects since then. In particular, claims as to the reality of a vast conspiracy involving shapeshifting reptilian space aliens who've taken up residence underground stand out. As far as I can tell, he seems to maintain they occasionally send up members of their own disguised as humans in order to infiltrate world politics and take over the human race. I believe him and David Icke have some "sinister plan" all mapped out, as to what their intentions are, and a probably-hilariously-long list of world figures who they think are secretly malicious, intelligent, shapeshifting space-alien reptiles.Now, if you find all this a bit hard to swallow, I'm not going to disagree with you. To put things bluntly, the whole idea sounds rather like the ravings of a paranoid lunatic. But! My 'People, My Africa' does not itself make any claims about subterranean alien overlords. Far from it, (though what isn't, really) it's a collection of oral traditions of the Zulu people, which according to Mutwa were passed down to him by his father. From what I recall, they are fanciful, and bizarre, and form a wonderful collection of myths and stories mostly free of Western context, mixed in with some ruminations on Southern African History up to that point. (1969)I cannot verify the accuracy of his accounts, especially in light of his later output. One short discussion of the meaning of a series of small wooden idols, each shaped to resemble a figure in chains, sticks out in my mind. In it Mutwa claims he knew ethnic violence was soon to break out when he saw the idols for sale in markets, as each carried notches representing the abject wound of a loved one taken into slavery, and would not be sold unless those who carried a hunger for vengeance were planning a retributionary attack, or action. As a teenager, this image made a powerful impression on me; in particular the horror of such a direct and recent relationship to the institution of slavery, and the notion of symbolic tokens held in independent solidarity towards a moment of action, when they were all to be released. Beyond that it fed my imagination significantly and probably fueled a few short stories. But in retrospect I wonder whether it was more a folk tale or an accurate recounting.In any case, the majority of the book is composed of his transcription of orally preserved myths, which regardless of his possible embellishment or even fabrication are fascinating reads.
