Product Description

Life for Princess Kasune Zulu began in privileged Zambian family living by the shores of the majestic Victoria Falls. But a mystery illness claimed the lives of her parents, baby sister and brother. That illness would become known as AIDS, orphaning more than 15 million children around the world.

When Princess learned at the age of twenty-one that she herself was HIV positive, she emerged as a champion for those at risk and affected by the virus. Her extraordinary journey has taken her from the dusty villages of Zambia to the global corridors of power, from the White House to the United Nations.

Princess' courage, tenacity and passion have earned her international recognition as an ambassador for vulnerable children. Her story shows that while life is uncertain, we each have a role to play in brining healing and hope to our world.

Warrior Princess by Princess Kasune Zulu is timely, shocking, and provocative. “Princess” is not her title. It is her name, her identity. Warrior Princess is her testimony. Princess Kasune Zulu was born near Victoria Falls to a privileged Zambian family. At an early age, her parents, baby sister, and brother died from a mysterious illness that later become known as AIDS. In January, 1998, at age twenty-one, Princess learned that she was HIV-positive and had six months to live. At this point, Princess realized AIDS was God’s calling on her life. He gave her Psalm 118:17-18 for hope. From it she developed her mantra: “I shall not die before I am dead.” In Warrior Princess she, along with co-author Belinda Collins, describes how God prepared her for her calling and how she has pursued it even to the present.

Warrior Princess is a first-person narrative. It is well-written and captivating, most often reading like a novel. In it, Princess presents her case and explains her fight for the 15 million children orphaned by AIDS—she being one of them. You can hear her strong voice coming out of her writing. She does not keep secret even the unfortunate aspects of her life, but explains how God used everything for His glory. Against all odds, Princess is still fighting for the lives of millions, and through this book she asks us to fight with her. “We can make the decision that on our watch as the custodians of our planet, we will no longer tolerate the pain and destruction…Are you with me?”

Most of the book is the story of her life. When she catches up with herself, she infuses the last few chapters with more details, goals, and hopes regarding what has already been accomplished and what is well within the capabilities of yet being accomplished. Some of the content is mature, but the message is for all ages.

Her closing message is, “I simply hope that my story, a story that echoes millions of others, will inspire you to join the fight against poverty, HIV and AIDS, and preventable disease.” – Stephanie Warner, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Princess is her name, not her title. Yet Zulu brings almost regal strength, hope, and a sense of responsibility to this memoir. Born in Kabwe, Zambia, Zulu had little more than a ninth-grade education, learning more on Africa’s diverse streets. She tells of the toll AIDS took on her life, ripping away her parents before it came for her. With astounding perspective, Zulu happily claims her HIV-positive diagnosis as God’s mission. Against custom and her husband’s wishes, Zulu speaks out about her status, risking divorce and excommunication. She bears Zambia’s burden by educating her countrymen about the disease, a journey that takes her from truck drivers on African roads all the way to Pennsylvania Avenue and the White House. In this book, she puts faces on the population of HIV-positive Africans. “Death is so much more common in Africa, but does it hurt less?”: Zulu demands respect for people with HIV and asks the world to be aware of Africa’s needs. Openly and tirelessly, she turns AIDS into an injury to the global body that readers won’t be able to ignore. (Jan.)Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
