Stefaans Coetzee was 17 years old in 1996 when he planted a bomb in a supermarket in Worcester, Western Cape, killing four people and injuring 70 others. He was sentenced to life imprisonment, along with three other men, Jan van der Westhuizen, Abraham Myburgh and Nicolaas Barnard. They were all members of a white supremacist group called the Wit Wolwe. In this memoir he describes how in Pretoria Central Prison he met Eugene de Kock who convinced him to abandon his racist ideology and reconcile with his victims. He was released on parole in 2015 and now works for the charity, Feed a Child.
Freelance journalist Alita Steenkamp has co-written five autobiographies, including Wynie, my bloed is blou and My Pyn, My Glorie.
