About the Book

Living for Posterity—My Remarkable African Mother is a book about a mother’s legacy. In it, the author, Dr. Sibeso pays homage to a remarkable African woman who championed transformation even when the odds were against her. She faced a lion and overcame the cultural odds against her to rise to a transformational leader whose influence cut across generations. Widowed at an early phase of life, she raised daughters, saw them through school, and they have continued to play their part in national and global transformation. Bo Ma-Matauka was a dedicated mother to more children than the ones she gave birth to, a public speaker, a community leader, an avid supporter of missionary work and education, and a national role model.

From Dr. Sibeso’s portrait painted in this book, Living for Posterity—My Remarkable African Mother, Bo Ma-Matauka emerges as a courageous, generous, and God-fearing, forward-looking woman to whom she ascribes accolades to for the inspiring work ethic, strong faith, courage, and dedication to serving others. This book is about Bo Wabei Lisulo, a.k.a. Bo Ma-Matauka, a woman of faith, an intentional mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who inspired her family and left a spiritual legacy, church planter, psalmist, evangelist, and woman who left a legacy of eternal value, which is far greater than temporal inheritance of the physical properties of this earth.

About the Author

Dr. Sibeso Mukoboto Luswata was the fourth-born daughter of Bo Ma-Matauka. Sibeso was one of the two daughters, the baby strapped on her mother’s back while her sister, Rose Kashembe Sakala, held firmly to their mother’s hand when they encountered a lion in the African savannah. Sibeso was deeply impacted by her mother’s faith and lifestyle, which led her to accept Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and Lord. Sibeso’s father, who passed on at a very early stage in their lives, dreamed the dreams that this mother kept alive. The woman of faith always reminded Sibeso and her sisters of the dreams they had for their daughters. In this book, Sibeso immortalizes memories of her remarkable mother, Bo Ma-Matauka, a story about one mother’s powerful impact on the generations in her lineage, the nation, and the world. What a legacy this remarkable woman stored for us!
