A Passion for Freedom: My Life

by Mamphela Ramphele
£12.99   paperback  I.B.Tauris & Co Ltd (2014)

A Passion for Freedom: My Life by Mamphela Ramphele Mamphela Ramphele is a figurehead of modern South Africa. The partner of Steve Biko, until his death in 1977, she has demonstrated extraordinary political leadership and statesmanship, most recently as the leader of the Agang SA party.
 
In this highly acclaimed autobiography, Mamphela Ramphele vividly describes her extraordinary life - when she was born to teacher parents in the rural village of Kranspoort, few would have predicted that she would become not only a medical doctor, but an international leader and the founder of not one but two new political movements. As a young woman, Mamphela was instrumental in creating the ideology of Black Consciousness with her partner, Steve Biko. As an accomplished and respected businesswoman who had reached the pinnacle of success, she felt compelled to start Agang SA, to provide South African voters with an alternative to the increasingly corrupt ANC.
 
Richly anecdotal, this book describes her loves and losses and her remarkable successes in both politics and business.
