McIntosh Polela

Police spokesperson and former TV journalist McIntosh Polela has been on our screens for many years. But behind his seemingly unfazed demeanour, a troubled past haunts him. His parents disappeared when he was a boy, leaving him and his sister Zinhle to suffer years of brutal abuse.

When the truth of his parents’ disappearance is revealed, the teenage McIntosh makes a fully functioning gun from found objects which he keeps for the day when he finds his father. He knows that he must come face to face with the man who robbed him of his childhood.

McIntosh has to confront his father about his mother’s brutal death. How can he possibly forgive, when his father remains a remorseless, brutal and heartless monster?

McIntosh obtained his master’s degree from the London School of Economics in the United Kingdom in 2006. He has ten years’ journalistic experience under his belt, including five years with ETV. He is currently the spokesperson for the Special Investigation Unit, the Hawks.

My Father, My Monster was shortlisted for the Alan Paton Literary Award in 2011.
