I have received two stories from 'learners' (students) from Sinethemba High School and have uploaded the one, which ends with a wonderful poem. The author, Sinethemba, writes with English as his second or even possibly his third language, and gives some interesting ideas in his story. Although there is some uncertainty about the viewpoint character, I think it was well written overall. It is entitled: Diamond in the Dirt and Blind South Africa.
