RENOWNED human rights activist and author, Dianne Lang, recently released her new book titled Easy to Kill you Bitch.

First published in August this year, it is the sequel to her first book, Saving Mandela’s Children, and tells the true story of what it means to be caught in the cross hairs of South Africa’s elite law enforcement team, the Scorpions.

The story of Saving Mandela’s Children started when three black African children, dying of Aids, were left on her doorstep. It ended with Lang fleeing for her life.

Saving Mandela’s Children had to be written because the terrible failings of the system had to be exposed and because I needed the catharsis relevant to the lives and deaths of these deeply hurt and innocent children,” she said.

“My bold dedication to the freedom of the children of South Africa has made me a target of political torture and extreme human rights abuses.”

Lang, armed with an Honours degree in psychology and a BA in philosophy and psychology, is considered to be one of the most prolific and outspoken human rights activists in South Africa and has received a number of humanitarian awards for her work.

In her own words, the sequel to the heart-wrenching book, Easy to Kill you Bitch, “details the long and harrowing road that the law takes when a policeman decides that he will ‘get you back’ for not accepting his advances.”

The book serves as proof that no good deed goes unpunished.

From activist to suspect, it promises to take readers on a journey of bewildering raids, seizures, interrogations and death threats.

Both books are based on true events and are available at Fogarty’s Bookstore in Walmer Park Shopping Centre.
