Mujinga is a perzine that was begun in 2002.

It commenced with issue 23 and the editor, Mujinga, is slowly counting down to issue zero. A typical issue contains a range of things which may include essays, reviews, artwork, short fiction, rants or the occasional haiku. All issues are photocopied in black and white and tend to be 24 pages and A5 sized. Information on issues 23 to 17 is scarce because Mujinga burnt all his remaining copies when he moved from the Czech Republic to the Netherlands in 2003.

The first issue was inspired by the Leeds punk zine Reason To Believe, as well as the info shop at Cafe Utopia in Prague. Issues tend to contain recently written short fiction or reviews and articles about topics such as veganism, activism, cats and bicycle maintenance.
