About the book
‘This is a radical, free-flowing, thought-provoking, poignant and wry tribute to a revolutionary prince of the people, inducing laughter and tears – a manifest celebration of an extraordinary life.’ – Ronnie Kasrils
Mandala J Radebe has written the first, full account of the South African revolutionary, Jabulani Nobleman ‘Mzala’ Nxumalo.
Intimate and analytical, this powerful and searching biography of one of the liberation movement’s chief critical thinkers, 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 insightful life of Mzala, is the story too, of the radical tradition of the liberation movement, which flourished during its underground days.
