Njabulo Publishers is a family owned business established in 2007. Zin Mabaso is the Managing Director and Owner of the business. Themba Mabaso, the founder, is the author and illustrator of the books.
Njabulo Publishers is founded out of a passion to tell authentic African stories and give creative expression to stories through colourful illustrations.
We are level 1 BEE, black owned business and we strive to be one of the leading children's publishers in the African Continent.
We want to bring colour and excitement to African children in the form of story books, poetry and nursery rhymes. Our aim is to publish books and material that preserve and advance the Indigenous languages.
We strive to capture oral indigenous nursery rhymes into book format with colourful illustrations. We want African children to read home-grown African books to which they relate.
So far we have 29 titles in our catalogue with translations. Every year we release new material to extend our portfolio and provide our readers with fresh, new and exciting content.
We want readers to experience the joy of reading in their own language, hence our pay-off line "Funda ngeNjabulo". This translated has a dual meaning of reading with Joy/Happiness and with Njabulo Publishers.
