Here’s a heartbreaking and inspiring one to start your week ~

I dedicate this book to my six children, Madiba and

Makaziwe (my first daughter), who are now deceased,

and to Makgatho, Makaziwe, Zenani, and Zindzi,

whose support and love I treasure; to my twenty-one

grandchildren and three great-grandchildren who give

me great pleasure; and to all my comrades, friends, and

fellow South Africans whom I serve and whose cour-

age, determination, and patriotism remain my source

of inspiration.
