Nearly sworn in as the youngest senator in the South African Parliament, 24 hours later Wesley Douglas finds himself in a warzone in Baghdad, Iraq. If there's one thing that illustrates I AM UBUNTU it is the continuous struggle to outsmart life, to outsmart oneself.
Wesley's ordeal of relentlessly reinventing himself and living life the Ubuntu way gets under your skin. A coloured young man growing up during apartheid desperately looking for his roots, identity and his purpose.
Without restraint Wesley Douglas shares his views, opinions and feelings from his origins and background and rapid rise in politics and business to being down and out in a South Africa that just like him tries to survive, reinventing itself by trial and error, searching for a connecting identity. With all his might Wesley fights life's battles to provide for all the people dependent on him. His quest also shows that the legacy of apartheid is still alive and that the Rainbow Nation has a long way to go.
Wesley Douglas's story about accountability, taking ownership and determining your purpose to live the best version of yourself, confronts. "I am because we are."
