Keep it up, bra Don!

On 7 November, Don Makatile scooped the South African Literature Award in the journalism category.

The awards ceremony was held at the University of South Africa in Pretoria. Congratulations, Mr Makatile. You have made us proud.

Bra Don, as we affectionately call him, originates from Kagiso and resides in Mindalore. He is a trained journalist and has worked for various publications, including Drum magazine. Currently he is with the Sunday Independent.

Makatile holds a master’s degree in creative writing from the University of the Witwatersrand. He started his career with Drum magazine in 1995. He is a prolific writer and book reviewer of note. As a result, he is regarded as one of the top journalists in the country.

He’s one of the few journalists from Kagiso to ply their trade in the national newspapers. I won’t be surprised if he scoops another award. As a matter of fact, many awards are coming his way. Keep it up, bra Don.
