Kalushi-The Story of Solomon Mahlangu now in South African cinemas

It took director, Mandla Dube nine years to get 'Kalushi- The story of Solomon Mahlangu' to South African big screens. Mandla says it is important to highlight that the film is written and told by South Africans.

The film stars Pearl Thusi and Gcina Mhlophe and Thabiso Rametsi, who plays Solomon Mahlangu.

The stories of unsung heroes are mostly neglected.

Dube says he felt obliged to write the story after realising there was little interest in the history and heritage of South Africa.

Dube says Solomon Mahlangu loved his community and hopes South Africans will now know the truth so they can heal and build a better society.
