‘From the time I was barely eight years old to the age of 14, I had been s*xually abused by some of the adults who should have been looking after me.’

‘For years I blamed her (her mother Zindzi Mandela) for the physical and s*xual abuse I was subjected to as a child. My feeling was that if she had been there for me, she could have prevented it and I could have been protected. I have come to realise she probably did the best she could,’ 33-year-old Zoleka wrote in her book.

I’d had Zenani and Zenawe taken from me, and now there was the sudden reality that I may never again breast-feed or carry another pregnancy.’
