About Andrew Feinstein
Andrew Feinstein was elected an ANC member of parliament in South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994. He resigned in 2001 in protest at the ANC government’s refusal to allow an unfettered investigation into an arms deal that was tainted by allegations of high-level corruption. His political memoir, After the Party: A personal and political journey inside the ANC, was published in 2007.
Feinstein lives in London, where he chairs the Aids charity Friends of the Treatment Action Campaign, and lectures and writes on South Africa. He was educated at King’s College, Cambridge, the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Cape Town.
