University of London International Programmes graduate, Ken Sibanda, has a new novel coming out. Entitled Bird Watchers, it sees him moving away from the sci-fi genre of his previous book, The Return to Gibraltar, to embrace the world of detective fiction.
A litigation lawyer by training who also holds a Masters in Trial Advocacy from the Temple School of Law in America, Ken started writing when he was a teenager growing up in Zimbabwe. Now based in New Jersey, he spent the first four years of his life in Qunu, a small rural village in South Africa's Eastern Cape Province. Qunu also happens to be the birthplace of another former University of London International Programmes student: Nelson Mandela.
As well as being a novelist, Ken has published two collections of poetry – If God was a Poet and The Songs of Soweto: Poems from a Post Apartheid South Africa – and founded his own film production company, Proteus Filmworks, in 2007. He is currently working on a feature film, Hannibal the Great, based on the life of the great military tactician and Carthaginian general.
