John William Colenso, the Bishop of Natal, became a notorious theological and colonial figure. His life and career are well documented, but his converts' views have hardly featured in these commentaries and biographies. Magema M. Fuze's published series 'Ukutunywa kukaSobantu' provides an alternative account of Colenso's career as a missionary bishop. In a series of articles published in the Zulu-English newspaper Ilanga lase Natal, Fuze sketched a portrait of Colenso that reflected his personal history as Colenso's convert, an Ekukhanyeni resident and also his aspiration to be a kholwa intellectual and a historian.
