JOHANNESBURG  (AFP) – Nelson Mandela’s ex-wife Winnie on Thursday released a book about her detention by the apartheid regime, a time she described as the darkest part of her life.
The book “491 Days: Prisoner number 1323/69″ is based on a journal Winnie Madikizela-Mandela kept in prison during her detention. “In my mind I felt that we needed to tell the story to the future generations, so that what happened there never happens again,” she said at the launch in Johannesburg.
In the book Winnie shares some of her journal entries as well as letters between her husband and herself.
“Solitary confinement is worst than hard labour,” she said.
“When you stretch your hands you touch the walls, you are reduced to a nobody.”
