Magema Fuze: In His Own Words

Magema Magwaza Fuze (c.1844 – 1922) was an early writer and intellectual based in what is today KwaZulu-Natal. An intimate associate of the outspoken and controversial Bishop of Natal, John William Colenso, and an ally of the Zulu Royal House, Fuze participated in, and wrote about, many of the main political events of his time. After the Hlubi chief, Langalibalele kaMthimkhulu, was accused of rebelling against the Colony of Natal in 1873, Fuze was integral to his defence at trial. On the eve of the Anglo-Zulu War, Fuze was sent as an envoy to the Zulu Kingdom where he developed close ties with the kingdom’s leaders. When the royal heir Dinuzulu kaCetshwayo was arrested on suspicion of treason in 1890, Fuze was closely involved with his defence. Fuze was also appointed Dinuzulu’s tutor. He would later resume that role at Dinuzulu’s place of exile on distant St Helena. In addition to meeting and corresponding with many of the most important people of the day, Fuze was a prolific writer who played a prominent role in the development of the first black literary publics. His extraordinary legacy includes a rich archive in isiZulu and in English.
