Monty Wilson worked for a variety of newspapers in Natal from the 1920s to the 1940s. From 1930s to the 1940s, Wilson worked for the Natal Daily News, where he published a series of strips later collected in his book Humorous Native Studies, which was based on the experiences of his numerous white collaborators in pre-Apartheid South Africa. His strip “The Adventures of Intambo and Mafuta” depicts the Botshongweni family of Natal.
