SIMUKA

Simuka

“To clasp the hands in prayer is the beginning of an uprising against the disorder of the world.” - Karl Barth

Simuka meaning to rise up or awake in Zimbabwean language Shona, was a response to the boiling point that Anthony's home country had reached - resulting in the historic events of November 2017. It was developed as his way of coping and also joining the fight for justice, whilst being thousands of Miles away.
