Remembering Mandela: New memoir launched in South Africa

Mandela Book

Nineteen years after former President Nelson Mandela began writing about his years as President of South Africa, his new book  'Dare Not Linger' was launched in Johannesburg on Tuesday.

Novelist Mandla Langa worked with Mandela's original manuscript, which he never finished, to complete the book which he had intended as a sequel to his international best-seller 'Long Walk to Freedom.' 

Langa has urged people to read the book which he says will help South Africans remember a time when they held the moral high ground.   

The book tells the story of the transition from decades of apartheid rule and the challenges Mandela overcame to make a reality of his cherished vision for a liberated South Africa. 

The prologue of Dare Not Linger: The Presidential Years is written by Mandela’s widow, Graça Machel.
