More about the book!
In the new episode of Pagecast, the podcast from Jonathan Ball Publishers, Pippa Hudson chats with Dr Emmanuel Taban, author of The Boy Who Never Gave Up, who is the Daily Maverick’s Africa Person of the Year.
As a child, Taban walked from war-torn Sudan to Johannesburg, survived torture and kidnapping, and went on to become a pioneering pulmonologist.
Taban’s skill and dedication as a physician, and his stubborn refusal to be discouraged by setbacks, led to an important discovery in the treatment of hypoxaemic Covid-19 patients.
By never giving up, this son of Sudan has risen above extreme poverty, racism and xenophobia to become a South African legend.
