Former car guard launches his third book

2014-08-18 00:00

A ONE-TIME car guard driven to succeed, has just released his third book.

Umlazi-born Lunga Ntuli (26) said his book, Why men cheat and women do it better, is a bit of a departure from the previous two, Love versus Sport and Zimpande Zenpulelo (Roof of Success).

Adding motivational speaker to his growing list of achievements, Ntuli said the book is a result of the issue of infidelity always cropping up at his talks, with people looking for guidance in dealing with it.

“I never imagined achieving any success after the hardships of losing a father, leaving my mother to raise three children,” he said.

After finishing matric, and with no money to further his studies, Ntuli had to think hard about how to tip the scales in his favour.

“I knew I had to get enough money together to pay for registration fees first, and I started to work as a car guard in Ballito.”

His goal was to make R2 000 for registration fees, and by saving every cent he could, he managed to raise the money in a year. “I knew I had to be enrolled first before I could apply for financial aid, so raising that money was important to me.

“Being a car guard helped me learn self-discipline and taught me not to compare myself to others,” he said.

In 2008 he graduated with a Diploma in Sports Management from the Durban University of Technology. He started his own business called Alebag Sports in his third year of study and used it also as a publishing house. “My business has bloomed since university.”

Ntuli has always had a passion for sport and at one time was a freelance sports writer for three local newspapers at the same time.

“In my second year I read a book called 360 degree leader by John Maxwell and that is where my passion for writing started. I have been writing about sport, love and other things since then.”

After many people asked how to deal with infidelity in relationships, he decided to write about cheating.
