To mark the first Mandela Day since the death of Africa’s most revered leader, we visit South Africa to look at his literary legacy. His widow, Graça Machel, talks to David Smith in her first audio interview since her husband’s death, and his former private secretary Zelda La Grange explains why she felt it was important to write a memoir of her time with him.

We also find out what other recent Mandela chroniclers have to say about him, including two South African politicians Melanie Verwoerd and Tony Leon.
