Nwamusi was an Umkhonto weSizwe operative who returned to South Africa in 1993 and led an underground team to provide and assess protection at Mandela’s rallies
I remember one morning he handed me the car keys, knowing that it was not my job to drive him, and insisted that I must take him “home”. I made a mistake because now that he was the president he was not allowed to be driven anywhere alone. He was so demanding that I felt obliged to drive him, for the first time. I thought he wanted to go to his house in Houghton but found out when we got there that he wanted to go to Soweto to see the family of a friend of his from the PAC who had passed away. The other group of protectors meanwhile went to the Presidential Guest House in Pretoria to find that Madiba was not there. My commander was very angry with me. He shouted at me and even at Madiba.
