BOOK: The Lost Prince of the ANC: The Life and Times of Jabulani Nobleman ‘Mzala’ Nxumalo 1955–1991 by Mandla J Radebe (Jacana)

Mandla J Radebe has written the first, full account of the South African revolutionary, Jabulani Nobleman Nxumalo, known as Mzala. Intimate and analytical, this powerful and searching biography of one of the liberation movement’s chief critical thinkers, a writer and constant questioner, The Lost Prince of the ANC traces Mzala’s life from birth to his untimely death in London in 1991, at the age of 35. Radebe’s insight into the life of Mzala, is the story, too, of the radical tradition of the liberation movement, which flourished during its underground days. It offers insights for the reader to imagine politics and society anew. This excerpt looks at some of Mzala’s undercover activity in Swaziland, where he posed as a journalist.
