Nelson Mandela’s grandson Ndaba has released his memoir, called ‘Going to The Mountain’, in the United States, where he is currently on a book tour.
NEW YORK - Nelson Mandela’s grandson Ndaba says he wants to make sure people around the world never forget what his grandfather stood for.
Mandela has released his memoir, called Going to The Mountain, based on lessons he learnt from Madiba, in the United States, where he is currently on a book tour.
Ndaba Mandela told Eyewitness News that he wants young people to know the intrinsic value of Madiba as more than just South Africa’s first black president who fought against apartheid.
“Integrity, humanity, discipline and public service… this is Nelson Mandela and I want young people to understand that.”
He says it took him two years to write the book.
“There are some very deep, personal things that are not always easy to put on paper.”
Going to the Mountain is being released ahead of July’s centenary of what would have been Madiba’s birthday.
