Black Tendencies


Sipho Mnyakeni’s niche is inspiration.  He speaks to people’s circumstances with a dose of hope and has the ability to resurrect aborted dreams through use of the spoken and/or the written word.

In Black Tendencies, he exposes and attacks tendencies that are responsible for much of lack of growth amongst (his) people. These tendencies include: ”African Time”; The tendency to disrespect time and not feel guilty about it; the Fear of Technology; Referring to technological advancements as ‘ntho tsa makgowa’ (white people things); Blaming Apartheid even for laziness and lack of initiative; and others.

Mnyakeni’s didactic approach is not confined to these tendencies, though it is designed to wake the black man from his slumber.

The book is a comprehensive inspiration platform that explores topics ranging from excellence, dealing with tragedy, giants in the Promised Land, a God-perspective to a successful life to the actual 10 tendencies that are identified for demolition.

Dr John Tibane calls Black Tendencies a “chronicle of inspirational insights”.

The foreword was provided by the charismatic Dr Aroon Lechuti.

The Book is sold through contact with the author at 0763137872 or and its message is repeated in many public presentations, speeches and trainings that Sipho Mnyakeni gives around the country.
