Grandad Man­dela

The Borneo Post - Good English - - Short Story Section - By Zindzi Man­dela, Zazi Man­dela

Nel­son Man­dela’s two great-grand­chil­dren ask their grand­mother, Man­dela’s youngest daugh­ter, 15 ques­tions about their grandad - the global icon of peace and for­give­ness who spent 27 years in prison.

They learn that he was a free­dom fighter who put down his weapons for the sake of peace, and who then be­came the Pres­i­dent of South Africa and a No­bel Peace Prize-win­ner, and re­alise that they can con­tinue his legacy in the world to­day. Seen through a child’s per­spec­tive, and au­thored jointly by Nel­son Man­dela’s great-grand­chil­dren and daugh­ter, this amaz­ing story is told as never be­fore to cel­e­brate what would have been Nel­son’s Man­dela 100th birth­day.
