Author Omoseye Bolaji has published many books over the years – and in very recent times it’s been stated that he now essentially writes mainly literary essays, tributes, reviews etc re other African writers. But this book (published in 2004) show that Bolaji has in fact been doing this since long ago. This is a tribute to a deceased South African female writer, Ms Mokhuoa, but in reading this work we learn that she garnered award of “Free State Writer of the Year”…actually there are additional

Many pundits believe that if women involved in writing in Africa are not somewhat undermined, then there is a paucity of works in respect of what they have done (especially the lesser lights). Hence this work is very important as it celebrates the contribution of a certain lady to writing; a woman who died prematurely, which circumscribed the fulfillment of her full potential, it seems. Mokhuoa as a mother and a "dabbler" (so to speak) in literature evidently did well. The author, Bolaji must be

Recently, I ran into an old schoolmate – a girl; ah well, now a woman with two three children! She was still as friendly as ever as we exchanged pleasantries. I remembered how brilliant she had been in English/Literature when we were at school. Why, she was already writing her own poetry, and short stories then! I reminded her of this.

With literary gems like Mr Bolaji, and the late Flaxman Qoopane to guide her, Alitta Mokhuoa did very well before her untimely exit from the world. I remember that there was a book published at the national level in South Africa which had the photo of Mokhuoa gracing the cover? Pule Lebuso was another writer who departed this world well before he should have done so. He wrote the intriguing work, African Renaissance Anti-Clockwise

Always reassuring to see books of this nature on women of substance. Ironic that it is a Nigerian (Bolaji) paying tribute to a South African woman of letters here. In Nigeria we have so many excellent women who are world famous in literature, from the very beginning. Flora Nwapa and Zulu Sofola easily come to mind. And now of course Chimamanda Adichie is one of the best in the world.

South African female critic, Rebaone Motsalane wrote about this work: “I felt obliged to review this one in memory of Molebogeng Alitta Mokhuoa. The book is in two parts: the first about the lady herself, and the second about her writings. This I believe was a great move for readers like me did not know her, save for the fact that she made a valuable contribution in promoting literature in the province.

She was even crowned Author of the Year in 2002. I never met her personally so it’s difficult
