Amabookabooka: The quarantine chronicles - Chris Hani

Today marks the 27th anniversary of the assassination of Chris Hani.
For many the revered revolutionary was the president we never had. But
12-year-old Lindiwe Hani hadn’t lost the head of the SA Communist
Party - it was her daddy who had been cruelly taken away from her.
Tragedy after tragedy followed, sending Lindiwe into a fog of cocaine
and booze until she smashed into rock bottom. In 2014, she became
sober. In 2017 she penned her remarkable memoir Being Chris Hani’s
Daughter, revealing details of her descent into addiction and the hard
road to recovery and redemption. People often wonder what South
Africa would be like if Chris Hani hadn’t been killed. It’s an
impossible question and while we can speculate, we don’t know. What we
do know, though, is Chris Hani would have been extremely proud of his
courageous daughter.
