As the author of Abantu Abamnyama Lapa Baveta Ngakona (1922), Magema Fuze is a classic example of how first-generation converts made the transition from oral to literate cultures, the homestead to the mission and from being 'native informants' to being kholwa intellectuals. The kholwa had no secure cultural or political identity, caught as they were in the 'Natal-Zululand divide', between the promise of full and equal incorporation into colonial society and the ties that bound them to traditional society and culture.
