Bona Malwal has been described as the ‘Grand Old Man’ of Sudanese and South Sudanese politics. Yet controversy and fierce independence of spirit have characterized his life from his early years. In this autobiography Bona speaks candidly about both his personal and professional life. Son of a tribal chieftain, he was expected to follow in his father’s footsteps; he chose, instead, to pursue a Western-style education followed by a career in journalism and politics. As editor he founded two daily English-language newspapers in Khartoum, The Vigilant (1965) and The Sudan Times (1986), as well as the Sudan Democratic Gazette, an exile publication for the Sudanese opposition based in London. As Minister of Culture and Information, he attempted to broaden the ministry’s meaning and function, accepting the predominant and sometimes conflicting cultural trends in Sudan and developing them as equally as he could. Outspoken in his role as presidential advisor, he was held as a prisoner of conscience for fourteen months under President Jaafar Mohamed Nimeiri’s military regime in Sudan. Most recently he was chosen as rapporteur for the National Dialogue in Sudan, a process that is fully covered in the book’s final chapter. Throughout these vicissitudes, Bona Malwal has been one of the architects and proponents of the right of the people of South Sudan to self-determination.
