Kyle Swart Reviews 8115: A Prisoner’s Home by Alf Kumalo and Zukiswa Wanner

8115: A Prisoner's HomeVerdict: carrot

Mandela describes 8115 Vilakazi Street as “identical to hundreds of others, it had the same standard tin roof, the same cement floor, a narrow kitchen, and a bucket toilet at the back”.

When Mandela moved there in 1946, little did he know how vital that cramped two room house would be in forever changing the course of history in south Africa and paving the way for democracy and freedom for all of us.
