Letshego Zulu chats about her tragic and inspiring memoir I Choose To Live: Life After Losing Gugu
More about the book!
Letshego Zulu chatted to Polity SA recently about her new book, I Choose to Live: Life After Losing Gugu.
When Letshego set off with her husband, South African racing champion Gugulethu Zulu, to conquer Mount Kilimanjaro in July 2016, she had no idea that she would return to South Africa days later with her husband’s body in a coffin.
Known and loved as South Africa’s Adventure Couple, the husband and wife team were brimming with excitement at being part of the 42-strong team of the Trek4Mandela initiative, attempting to summit the world’s highest free-standing mountain.
I Choose to Live is both a tragic and inspiring memoir told in mesmerising detail. As much as it is about the death of a beloved husband and the 17-year-long relationship the two shared, it is also a remarkable story of a wife’s courage and stamina as she tries to make sense of her loss and find life after Gugu’s untimely death.
