Review By Dr.Claude Shema Rutagengwa
Great Lakes Peace Initiative(GLPI)
Nelson Mandela's life has been (and still
is) up in all kind of media. His life, his commitment and
self-determination for a better life for South African people,
has been a model for the rest of humankind.
A Prisoner in the Garden is a very
interesting book, talking about life during his imprisonment in
Robben Island. It is a very inspirational book, actually, on
such a hero - Mandela.
"Anyone who has explored the world of
archive will know this book is treasure house, one that is full
of surprise, crossing paths, dead ends, painful remembrances,
and unanswered questions. The experience of looking at my prison
archive has been a personal one for me. Readers are invited to
share in it..." - Nelson Mandela
This is very detailed book on Mandela’s
life, and it shows fully chronicles Mandela's life during his
painful jailing of about 3 decades.
