Sandile Ntuli

Sandile Ntuli describes himself as “an active dreamer”: “I believe in pursuing my dreams, as opposed to passively watching them pass me by.”

He has a twin brother, Andile, and they were born in Emalahleni (formerly Witbank) in Mpumalanga 28 years ago. “I read English news between noon and 3 pm, and co-present the actuality programme The ego trip during the week on the campus radio station, UJFM.”

Sandile alternates between fiction and non-fiction and his opinion pieces on a number of topics, including politics, have appeared in The Star, Citizen, Sowetan and Mail & Guardian. Some of his short stories have been published in Drum.

He holds a National Diploma in Small Business Management and a BTech degree in Management Services from the University of Johannesburg. “I am a bold Leo, currently learning Chinese, and I naturally write in my spare time. When I put down my pen, I pick up a spatula in the kitchen. Johannesburg is my current heartland.”
