Soweto Story is the compelling tale of the trials and tribulations of the Khumalo family that took place during the terrible years of apartheid in South Africa, before the release of Nelson Mandela in February 1990. It is the story of South Africa, in which the colour of one's skin determined one's destiny. The Khumalo family represents all the families who were on the brutal receiving end of consecutive ruthless National Party governments that did not hesitate to silence dissent, be it from children or adults, who suffered jailing, torture, and even murder. Author Oswald Brandt says, "This is my first book, which I self-published over 20 years ago. I do plan to write about my own experiences and how I survived the brutal regime to be still alive to tell the tale." (About the Author) Oswald Brandt knows of what he writes. The family is originally from Cape Town, South Africa, but he grew up in what was then Western Transvaal, now North West Province, and also lived in Johannesburg for many years. "I reluctantly left South Africa in 1984 for Australia after surviving a 12-hour interrogation in the notorious police station known as John Voster Square in Johannesburg. It was safer to leave." He writes about apartheid "from personal experience. From the inside, not by others who wrote about apartheid, but never experienced it."
