About the Author

ZELDA LA GRANGE left the South African government to work for the Nelson Mandela Foundation in 2002. She lives in Pretoria, South Africa.


"In Good Morning, Mr. Mandela, Zelda la Grange recounts her remarkable life at the right hand of the man we both knew and loved. It's a tribute to both of them--to Madiba's eye for talent and his capacity for trust and to Zelda's courage to take on a great challenge and her capacity for growth. This story proves the power of making politics personal and is an important reminder of the lessons Madiba taught us all."--President Bill Clinton

"Leadership is the rarest resource in this world, the ability to inspire the best and the brightest to serve the public good. Nelson Mandela did this at the government level with his official cabinet, but he also did it with his 'kitchen cabinet' of trusted advisers. Zelda's view of his extraordinary impact is uniquely personal. Her leadership is also of the highest order: service."--Bono, lead singer of U2 and cofounder of ONE

"President Nelson Mandela's choice of the young Afrikaner typist Zelda la Grange as his most trusted aide embodied his commitment to reconciliation in South Africa. She repaid his trust with loyalty and integrity. I have the highest regard for her."--Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu

"Zelda la Grange has a singular perspective on Nelson Mandela, having served as his longtime personal aide, confidante and close friend. She is a dear friend to both of us and a touchstone to all of us who loved Madiba. Her story of their journey together demonstrates how a man who transformed an entire nation also had the power to transform the life of one extraordinary woman."--Morgan Freeman and Lori McCreary, actor, producer of Invictus
