Art Is The Corner Stone Of My Life.
Alexander (Lex) von Rudloff was born in Pretoria, South Africa in 1951. He was educated at Christian Brothers' College and graduated in English Literature and Political Science at UNISA. He found his opposition to the apartheid system leading him into exile in Botswana in 1973 where he obtained citizenship in 1978. After teaching for seven years and a long career in the construction industry, he began writing, and was the scriptwriter of the successful Setswana television drama series, RE BINA MMOGO in 2005. He now writes full time, supplementing his income with consultancy work. He and his wife live with their young son Kabo in Mokatse, a small traditional village in the Kgatleng District of Botswana, about thirty kilometres northeast of the capital, Gaborone.
