First published in 1973 in the UK as Robben Island: the memoirs of Dan Makhiyana Zwelonke Mdluli
In previous editions of this book Mdluli used fictional names to protect fellow prisoners and comrades.
Dan Mduli joined Poqo, the armed wing of the Pan Africanist Congress (PAC), in 1962. He was arrested in 1963, charged with belonging to a banned organisation, tortured and sentenced to 30 months imprisonment. After organising a hunger strike at Kroonstad prison he was sent to Robben Island. After his release he went into exile in Swaziland. When the PAC was expelled from Swaziland in 1978 he was detained and eventually deported to Canada, where he served as the PAC's chief representative. He returned to South Africa in 1994 and was a district councillor for the Nkangala District Municipality until he retired in 2011.
