More about the book!
Love Books and Jonathan Ball Publishers invite you to the launch of The Plot to Save South Africa: Chris Hani’s Murder and the Week Nelson Mandela Averted Civil War by Justice Malala.
Malala will be in conversation with author and journalist Hamilton Wende.
Johannesburg. Easter weekend. 1993. Chris Hani, the charismatic ANC leader, is shot and killed outside his home by white supremacist Janusz Waluś in an attempt to stop talks to transform South Africa into a multiracial democracy. The aim of the assassination is simple and chilling: to tip the country into all-out civil war.
Twenty-two-year-old rookie journalist Justice Malala was one of the first people at the crime scene …
On the 30th anniversary of Hani’s death, this book tells us just how close South Africa came to civil war and how Mandela and De Klerk – despite provocation and despite their own fears, failures and doubts – chose the path of peace.
