MUSA E. ZULU is a published author, artist, poet and motivational speaker. After achieving an Honours degree in Sociology at UKZN (1993), Zulu lectured in the Humanities faculty before moving to the corporate world as Human Resources Manager. He was fast climbing the career ladder when his life took a dramatic and unexpected turn – this was in 1995 when he was 23 years old. Paralysed and left in a wheelchair after a car accident, he found himself faced with one of the hardest challenges life can bring – disability. Applying his personal philosophy of embracing change, he not only found a way to cope with his new life, but to inspire others as well!
Zulu is the author of three books; “The Language of Me” (UKZN Press; 2004), “Wheels on the Souls of my Shoes” (NUTREND Publishers; 2008) and “TRIBUTES: The Story” (Valhalla Arts; 2012). He is also an established artist and has been widely commissioned by organisations to create artworks that depict business profiles.
In 2005/6 his artwork was commissioned as Presidential Awards of Excellence to business achievers by the Institute of Personnel Management [IPM]. In 2013 he was invited by the American Embassy in South Africa, Durban, to participate in the State Department sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) which seeks to build mutual understanding between the United States and other nations through carefully designed professional visits to the US for current and emerging leaders.
