In The Mungo Bridge Ngwane penetrates the cloak of official secrecy: breaking down this anti-people system lies in its being asphyxiated; in liquidating the old mystification once and for all. For a retrograde and ferocious oligarchy opposes the legitimate aspirations of the people. Thus the people must defend foot-by-foot what is theirs. True, Ngwane has shown in The Mungo Bridge that we all may be accomplices to this fragmentation of the national psyche but we were not responsible for it. Those who were responsible for this Pyrrhic triumph in “brotherhood” were those who sold us like Eyumojock men-sized yams at a bazaar.

The North West/ South West divide is considered a very serious issue by all Anglophones of goodwill. We have seen George Ngwane in his book, The Anglophone File, speak out frankly and publicly on the issue without fear or shame; we have admired his intellectual honesty to publish well researched facts.
Ewumbue Monono Churchill, Weekly Post newspaper, 1993
Present day nations worldwide and particularly so in Africa are indeed conglomerations of nation states or tribal units seeking unity in diversity. I believe that such unity may be more easily discovered in a less centralized administration, which permits each unit to take care of its specific problems yet ensuring that the whole holds together. The whole can only hold together in a fair and just system by which the nation provides a safe homeland for its citizens. To me this is the crux of the book Fragments of Unity.
