Khwezi… Say My (Her) Name opens up into the world of a young girl who grew up in exile, who loved singing and dancing and was part of a communal village of aunts and uncles who were fighting an evil system.
But this cause against apartheid, was also a battle ground upon women’s bodies on different fronts. In her quest to know her father, Judson Kuzwayo, and to preserve his political life;s story, Khwezi ends up in Forest Town, where she is sexually appropriated by her father’s former best friend, Comrade Malume Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma. Through the rape trial and tribulations, the audience becomes part of Khwezi’s court case against one of the most powerful men in South Africa.
