About the Series

The English language version is currently available for licensing to the World excluding Africa: This unique and intimate six-part mini-series follows the epic journey of Zelda la Grange, President Nelson Mandela’s personal assistant. Zelda met Nelson Mandela in 1994 when he became South Africa’s first democratically elected President. She was a typist in the Presidential office at the time. Soon she became his private secretary and personal aid. President Mandela hand-picked her from his personal staff to remain in his services beyond retirement. Zelda served Madiba in various capacities over 19 years including Executive Personal Assistant, Spokesperson and Manager of his private office until his death on 5 December 2013. Through her eyes, we get a glimpse into the most private and public moments of this extraordinary man and international icon. The series is available in Afrikaans and English voice-over. “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead”. - Nelson Mandela
