I read the book with a great deal of interest as I have worked in the area for sixteen years, both at Truro House, Phoenix, Verulam, Tongaat, Inanda, Ndwedwe, Maphumulo, KwaMashu and Newlands. The book captures the events and the mode of the times succinctly. I think it is a trailblazer. It poses a challenge to all of us as public servants to tell our own story. It will also appeal to the general public interested in the history of our country.
