Kulani Nkuna Reviews The Lighter Side of Life on Robben Island by Fred Khumalo, Gugu Kunene and Paddy Harper

The Lighter Side of Life on Robben Island: Banter, Past Times and Boyish TricksVerdict: carrot

The lighter side of some of our leaders in government, especially those imprisoned on Robben Island during apartheid, is seldom revealed.

The authors deal with the music tastes of the inmates and the culture stars they took a liking to. When television was introduced to the island in 1987, the prisoners would pick a “girlfriend”, whom they would boast about.
