local business man

I have been watching the progress of a business which is developing, mainly because I pass this bit of ground 2 or 3 times a day. Veve Ngcobo is the business owner and he started with a little wooden shack in the middle of
the field. The area was later fenced, then came his sign advertising that he will be selling.... izinkomo, izimbuzi and iziklabhu (cows, sheep and goats). This is Veve, who when I stopped the car to talk to him, was very smiley friendly and happy and then when it came time for him to have his photo taken (which he was very happy to do) he changed his expression to what you see. This is typical of older generation Zulu people who like to look composed, serious and stately in photographs. He is not as grumpy as he looks.


  1. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I love your illustrations and feel totally envious that you live in S.A, sorrounded by animals. As a girl, I spent holidays and vacations on a farm, where we were sorrounded by animals too. What a paradise...keep in touch!
