Nelson Mandela's grandson pens memoir on life's lessons he learnt from him

Ndaba Mandela, the grandson of anti-apartheid revolutionary Nelson Mandela, has penned a memoir "Going to the Mountain", sharing the story of his coming-of-age alongside South Africas rebirth.

The book is published by Penguin Random House, which said it recounts a remarkable journey.

"As a young boy, Ndaba was constantly shunted from place to place. But at eleven years old he was unexpectedly invited to live with his grandfather, Nelson Mandela, even though he had met him only once before, during a prison visit. And, slowly, they built a relationship that would affect both of them profoundly," the publisher said in a statement.

From Nelson Mandela, the publisher added, Ndaba learned the spirit of endurance, the triumph of forgiveness, the power of resistance and the beauty of reconciliation.

"And as Mandela grew older, Ndaba had the chance to repay his grandfather's love and support by demonstrating the ways in which he'd understood all that he had taught him".
