It was during a family gathering that my mother mentioned Ouma Tieties, my Zulu ancestor. My family were classified coloured under the apartheid regime. Quite abit is known about our European ancestry but there is scant detail about our African lineage. Thus, news about a Zulu ancestor was news indeed! My quest to find my Zulu ancestor started with a quaint Dutch language bible which landed up in my family (much to the chagrin, no doubt, of the Dutch/Afrikaaners).
In part two of the series, I explore another link with our country’s history: The forced removals, occasioned by the notorious Group Areas Act. This too is a lesser known story about the coloured people.
