Gilder’s new book gives us a glimpse into his conflicted life – first as an Umkhonto weSizwe fighter and then as a government official, writes Mathatha Tsedu
Barry Gilder is a former Umkhonto weSizwe (MK) fighter. He did not train in some house in suburbia, nor is he one of those white revolutionaries that made their names and their mark by housing the real guys.
He wasthe real guy – trained in Angola, eating mush and surviving to become one of the ANC’s foremost spies and spymasters – an “Mchina” in ANC-camp lingo.
