NELSON MANDELA’S SEQUEL MEMOIR

NELSON MANDELA’S SEQUEL MEMOIR
THURSDAY 2ND APRIL 2015

A sequel to Nelson Mandela's 1995 autobiography Long Walk to Freedom will be published next year.

The sequel is to be based on Mr.Mandela’s hand written draft that was completed by his former advisers. Mandela’s widow, Graca Machel said that he began working on the document in 1998 (end of his five-year presidential term).

Ms Machel said Mr Mandela saw it as "a natural progression" from Long Walk to Freedom which covered his early years, his political struggle against South Africa's apartheid regime, and the 27 years he spent in prison.

The anti-apartheid, revolutionist’s political memoir went on to become the best seller of all time.

Distinguished literary agent Jonny Geller said the book would be an important historical document. Geller further spoke about the memoir:
"A lot of it is a political memoir about being president, his relationships with the army, with the unions and with the tribes. What's really interesting is that he can't help but talk about leadership and talk about the most important thing which is the transition from freedom to power.

"This will be a very inspiring book because it's actually about what you do when you actually have power."
