A BRITISH-based Zimbabwean Psychiatric nurse and online-media consultant, Mkhululi Mpofu has published a classic book, documenting a perilous journey of an ambitious young Zimbabwean man to Britain.
The book entitled One way ticket to UK, promises to be a bestseller, and reflects the adventurous experiences of a Zimbabwean boy called Brain. Coming from an uneventful village deep in Zimbabwe, Brian gets an opportunity of a lifetime to travel to what would be greener pastures in the UK.
Besides dealing with the massive culture shock at his destination country, Brian had to struggle with his inner moral turmoil of dealing with the new diaspora hip life. His values and beliefs are tested to their utmost limits. When he questions his religion too he knows he has fallen deep into the Diaspora UK lifestyle and that his journey here may just have been a one way journey to the UK.
One way ticket to UK is Mkhululi's debut novel. It has taken him about four years to complete his book project as he also worked as editor for the online news The Zimdiaspora.com. As editor, he has also published a weekly series of human interest short stories. Most of these attracted the attention of a national Zimbabwean newspaper, The Chronicle which also published Mkhululi's works in the popular tabloid B-Metro, a sister paper of The Chronicle.
“I wanted to portray the most real day-to-day life of young Zimbabweans and other Africans in foreign countries imprisoned by their moral and cultural dilemmas, their immigration restrictions while at the same time trying to carve out a life for themselves,” he said.
Mkhululi is already working on his second novel which he promises to be gut-busting with brute humour. At the moment while he continues to work as a psychiatric nurse as well as consultant editor of The ZimDiaspora.com. He also continues doing media consultancy .
