Book

In 2014 Christo wrote his book “Doing Life with Mandela – My Prisoner, My Friend”, with co-author Barbara Jones.

In the Foreword, Ahmed Kathrada writes: “My lasting impression of Christo Brand is that he’s a very good human being.  He’s not a politician; he’s just a very caring man who took chances for other people, which could have brought him trouble.

“I sincerely hope that Christo’s book will receive the respect and attention it deserves.  It is a valuable addition to the writings about imprisonment in the apartheid era, and it is written by a fine man.  It is also unique in that it is the most honest account I have read by a warden relating their interaction with Nelson Mandela, and for that alone it deserves credit.  I wish Christo all the success in the world.”

The book is available in leading bookstores and in the Robben Island shop.
