It is wonderful to see so many old and new friends, including a number of former colleagues, Mark Philips and Roddy Payne; Murphy Morobe, Laloo Chiba and Ahmed Kathrada – heroes of the struggle and early years of democracy, who characterise what is best about the ANC.

Welcome to Andrew Feinstein’s Blog

Andrew FeinsteinGreetings readers and welcome to my blog.

Since After the Party‘s publication earlier this month (see launch coverage), I have been overwhelmed by the response – and have never been so busy. I’d like to take this chance to thank my friends and supporters, who’ve been with me every step of the way during this whirlwind experience, and all those who purchase and read the book.
