Thuli Madonsela to publish her autobiography

Pan Macmillan South Africa announced on Monday that it will publish a personal memoir by former public protector, Advocate Thuli Madonsela. The book will cover the remarkable life of one of South Africa’s most respected leaders.

Madonsela will be best remembered and go down in history for fearlessly taking on the people that put her in office. She served as public protector from 2009 to 2016, describing her role as a non-political figure who “gives the people a voice while giving the traditional leader a conscience”.

But her story is more than that. From her involvement in drafting South Africa’s Constitution to her pursuit of cases that drew significant media attention – some more than others – Madonsela has proven time and again her commitment to making South Africa a better country.

While her report on Nkandla has received the most attention, she will also be remembered for other investigations: Bheki Cele; a company and trust fund linked to Julius Malema; the role of Helen Zille in a communications tender by the Western Cape provincial government; and State Capture.

Says Madonsela about her book: “I’m grateful for this opportunity and excited to take a journey back into the life I have lived, with the hope that what I share will have meaning for others.”

Pan Macmillan SA, one of the largest general book publishers in the country, acquired World rights for the book.
