Walter Sisulu and Albertina Thethiwe were born in small rural villages just a few miles apart in the Eastern Cape hinterland. From these humble beginnings, they would become two of the country's most respected and beloved figures, among its greatest crusaders for human rights and dignity. For over five decades, the pair - married in 1944 - were at the forefront of the struggle against apartheid and the injustices it wrought on black South Africans. As Secretary-General of the African National Congress, Walter was sentenced with Nelson Mandela to life imprisonment, and spent 26 years behind bars.



While her husband was in jail, Albertina continued to play a crucial role in keeping the ANC alive underground. But she and Walter were destined not only for suffering, triumph and greatness; they were destined for each other. Their story is a moving love story against all odds. This remarkable biography charts their life together: the challenges and hardships they faced, the good times they shared and the massive changes to South African society they helped to bring about.

Review:

There can be no greater and more inspiring example in the history of our organisation, and hence of our country, than Walter and Albertina Sisulu: a couple whose every deed speaks of leadership that made the kind of difference that brought us to where we are today as a country and as a people . . . It is time that this story of our nation be told (Nelson Mandela)

An intimate and moving account of one of the most extraordinary of all South African life-stories, which everyone should read. For Sisulu was the wisest and most loveable of all the black leaders; and without him Mandela would never have happened. (Anthony Sampson, author of MANDELA: THE AUTHORISED BIOGRAPHY)

The dense detail of these lives is skillfully ordered by the author...moving. (INDEPENDENT)
