JOHANNESBURG - Nelson Mandela's former Robben Island prison warder has launched his book entitled Doing Life with Mandela at Constitution Hill, recalling fond memories of how the former president changed his life.

Christo Brand also sat down with former prison warders on Saturday, to share memories of Mandela's time on the island.

Brand says he misses Madiba's presence, his voice and his humanity and will always remember that the former statesman not only supported him, but his entire family.

"He was close to my family; he always asked about my children. He even wrote a letter to my eldest son who was in the United States. When I lost him, I felt that at least he had freedom."
