Jabulani Ncube
in response to the painting by Paul Levy

My dear friend, the Zimbabwean disability rights advocate, Jabulani Ncube, was a powerful spirit. 

This spirit was married to a daunting intellect, a booming laugh and a finger-fusing handshake. 

Jabu was one of the founders of the disability movement in Southern Africa. 

He died suddenly in 2012 in Namibia. 

He was 59.
