Mawabo – I am a qualified city planner and I draw from this experience in my writing but, while completing my Masters and working in a small architectural practice, I decided to leave the profession in order to pursue a longstanding passion for music. The slow process of truly comprehending the gravity of this decision resulted in me making a few philosophical ramblings on paper. Then these grew into articles, which then grew into this blog. I am an avid reader of Steve Biko and of work by Marxist authors such as David Harvey, Slavoj Zizek and Manuel Castells. And like Biko said: I write what I like
