A white Afrikaner, Zelda la Grange grew up in segregated South Africa, supporting the regime and the rules of apartheid. Her conservative family referred to the imprisoned Nelson Mandela as "a terrorist". Yet just a few years after his release and the end of apartheid, she would be traveling the world by Mr. Mandela’s side, having grown to respect and cherish the man she would come to call "Khulu", or "Grandfather".
"THE NARRATION IS NOTHING SHORT OF A DISGRACE"
Good Morning, Mr Mandela is the journey of an awkward young typist later chosen to become the President's most loyal servant, spending most of her adult life travelling with, and caring for the man she would come to call 'Khulu', or 'grandfather'. Here Zelda pays tribute to Nelson Mandela as she knew him. A man who forgave and respected all, but who was also frank, teasing and direct. Now she shares his inspiring gifts with the world.
"thank you Zelada"
