Tusnelda Kamati

Tusnelda was born in Oshipala near Omundangilo where she attended school. The family then moved to Ongangola where she re-started in Sub A – she was very upset about this. She reached Std 4 at this missionary school and then attended a trade school where she learnt needlework and sewing. Tusnelda became a teacher at Ekoka where she taught pre-primary and grade A to the Quagga and !Kung. She married and had 10 children, only 5 of which are alive today.

Tusnelda is improving and growing in art. Her paintings are becoming very sort-after.  She says: ‘It’s good to be serious in a workshop otherwise God would be angry with me’
