The UJ Sport and UJFM, in collaboration with the UJ Library, invite you to a discussion with
Junior Khanye, on his book: GHETTO NINJA – The Junior Khanye Story by Nikolaos Kirkinis
This book, with its wealth of stories from both on and of the pitch,
tells of the making of a soccer sensation. Junior shares his experience
of poverty, the death of his brother, soccer stardom, alcoholism, the
murder of his father, and raising children, with great honesty. Much
more than a sports biography, Ghetto Ninja is Junior Khanye’s tragic,
yet triumphant story. It is impossible to put down.
‘He crushed his dream only to resurrect himself. What a man,
and what a book!’ Robert Marawa
Facilitator: Melody Miya –Motivational Mentor, a web influencer, and a TV host
Nthabeleng Modiko – Assistant Coach – UJ Women’s Football
Seakga Tladi – UJFM Presenter
