According to a family member that spoke to Zimoja, the book is delayed because of printing issues and for MaMkhize to focus on football. 

“There are many contributing factors…She was unhappy about the quality of the print. Ultimately, she trusted the publishing company to handle everything, but after the first print run was done, she did not like the quality and sent it back,” he says.

“We all know MaMkhize likes expensive, quality things and that book was not what she had expected,” the insider revealed.

Zimoja says MaMkhize asked the publishers to change the quality of the paper.

“She trusted the publishers to deliver but they did not and they have to reprint…Another thing, she wanted to focus on the CAF. The book was going to need her to host a launch and possibly do a book signing tour and promotions, which was going to take her attention away from the football. So rather take a break and focus on one thing at a time,” said the member.
