Mutwa died yesterday morning in Kuruman, Northern Cape, at the age of 98.
Ntuli said Mutwa, a playwright, poet and storyteller, was forced to move from place to place because his level of spirituality was not understood by many.
Mutwa was respected country-wide and has written books that drew strongly from African mythology.
According to Ntuli, Mutwa knew about the origins of Africans.
Ntuli said Mutwa led a very fascinating and yet extremely frustrating life. He said the late sanusi specialised in the highest form of spirituality
"It was a frustrating life because indeed many people did not understand that he was trans-journeying the real essence of what Africa is," Ntuli said.
