Ngxabani be­gan pro­tect­ing Man­dela in April 1990

I re­mem­ber him get­ting out of his car and go­ing to chil­dren who were play­ing soc­cer in a field. They were aged around eight, nine, ten. I re­mem­ber that he would ask them how they are and laugh with them and re­mem­ber the rhymes we learnt when we were young. He’d sing with them, “Baa Baa Black Sheep, have you any wool?”
