The story of Nelson Mandela's early years on the run from the apartheid authorities.
In March 1961, after giving a brief speech at a conference, Nelson Mandela vanished.
For the next eighteen months he was an outlaw, living under assumed identities and in various disguises (sometimes as a chauffeur, sometimes a gardener) as the South African police and secret services, helped by MI5 and the CIA, sought him in vain. His mission? To undergo military training and set up armed resistance to apartheid.
A South African writer of children's and adult's books, Zukiswa Wanner was one of the recipients of the Goethe medal in 2020, making her the first African woman to win this award. Her latest children's book is Africa: A True Book, a journey though the history, geography and contemporary culture of the continent. She has written for the Observer (UK), New York Times, Mail and Guardian (SA), The Nation (Kenya) and New African.
