Jackson Biko is a writer. A lifestyle writer. In his words this means “I don’t write about politics or GDP’s. I write about people, and quite often, I write about things that define people. Like pain, or hunger, or joy, or beliefs, or stir fried mutton. I love words. I live for words. The power of words is grossly understated. If God took away words from us, we would turn into empty noisy vessels. Words open us to possibilities, and to a world that we sometimes choose to ignore.”
