INSPIRED by his personal struggles, a Nkayi school teacher has chronicled his life story through a poetry anthology.

The book, with 48 poems, was launched on 19 December on a virtual WhatsApp group and published by Stanley Mushava under his company, Underclass Books and Films.

Fortune Munsaka (26) said writing was part of him, but he couldn’t ignore the money because the project relies on money to go through hence he commercialises his writings.

The book is a flashback of a path he once took in his life and reflects on how women and children are portrayed in society.

Munsaka grew up in a family where he was a stepson and only discovered that when he was 25 years old.

“But why didn’t they tell me that the dad who raised me was not my biological father? I felt betrayed,” said the author.
