Kinky-Tail roars into the night

The inimitable Kinky-Tail by Andrew Batchelor

I know I promised you all something riveting for this week’s edition of Video Thursday, but I was thwarted by the camp’s Internet connectivity. So instead I dug out something, or rather someone, close to all our hearts. Even those of us who didn’t know this “king of kings” that well, were saddened by his passing.

The demise of Kinky-Tail – one of the Mlowathi brothers – was definitely a saga for the ages. His brother (who was last seen in July 2010) moved west to rejoin his 3 older brothers after Kinky-Tail was killed by the Manyelethi males.

Happy almost weekend folks, enjoy!
