Ukuvuka is the first book of poetry by writer and poet, Erica Ndlovu.

This debut features the emotional journey faced by many as they navigate the darkness in their life, in order to break free into the light. The word ukuvuka is Ndebele and translates to awakening--which by the end of the novel is achieved. Readers first navigate the darkness before venturing into ukuvuka--the awakening--in the second part of the book. Ndlovu's debut book of poetry aims to illicit and stir emotions.
