With Nelson Mandela’s recent passing, Mandela offers an exclusive look at the great icon’s younger life.

In this book Christo tells, for the first time, the incredible and moving story of their unlikely friendship.

Christo Brand was an 18-year-old recruit to the South African prison service when he was sent to work on the Robben Island prison, and was assigned to guard Nelson Mandela, who he was told was a dangerous terrorist. Over time, he became friendly with Mandela, even helping his wife Winnie bring in their grandchild for Mandela to hold for the first time.

Following Mandela’s release and election success, Brand was given a job in the archives department of the South African parliament. He is now a tour guide at Robben Island, and has remained close friends with Mandela’s family.
