The book has people talking

Penguin Random House South Africa announced on Monday that they were withdrawing the Mandela's Last Years book by Nelson Mandela's former doctor, Dr Vejay Ramlakan with immediate effect.

The withdrawal of the book came after Mandela's widow Graca Machel had threaten to sue over the publication of the book saying it was a breach of doctor-patient confidentiality. Graca also said that Dr Ramlakan hadn't received consent from the family to publish the book, something the Dr denied.

After the announcement of the withdrawal of the book many people rejoiced while others felt that because Mandela was a public figure, the book was in public interest.

Here's a look at people's divided responses over the pulling of the book;
