Am I the only one not to have heard of this guy before? Halfway through Mandela's Way - Lessons on Life I read; "Tokyo Sexwale, who was imprisoned on Robben Island with Mandela...".
A quick google confirmed he's the current Minister of Human Settlements of South Africa and was even a candidate for the presidency after Mandela stepped down. President Sexwale? Yes we can!
Would have made the World Cup more interesting if his grandsons played football. He also has an excellent blog here. Well worth a click.
