Nobody Will Ever Kill Me is an inspirational, true story of Mbu Maloni who, through his courage and never failing belief in the power of education, rose above the terrible circumstances he was born into and made it off the streets of Masizakhe and Masiphumelele townships to become a published author and a Matric pupil on the path to a successful future.
The book is dedicated to Mbu’s friend Abongile ‘Atie’Rwanqa who was brutally murdered at the age of fifteen by another boy of seventeen – for no reason. Mbu writes:
Asoze ndiku libale – I will never forget you, Atie!
