The former British ambassador to South Africa will speak to Alex Boraine, the author of What’s Gone Wrong?, about his relationships with Nelson Mandela, FW de Klerk and Mangosuthu Buthelezi and the role they all played in the dismantling of apartheid.

The launch will take place at The Book Lounge on Thursday, 5 February, and will start at 5:30 for 6 PM.

In Mission to South Africa: Diary of a Revolution Renwick paints a vivid portrait of Mandela the revolutionary and describes his first meeting with Margaret Thatcher (including telling the Iron Lady not to interrupt Mandela).
