On this episode I chat with Luthando about his journey from being a young boy full of hope and aspirations to his ending up in the infamous detention camp known as Quatro.  This is a true account of his journey and how he was able to overcome the adversity in his life.

Luthando Dyasop’s memoir starts with an account of his young life as a black artist in apartheid South Africa. He eventually joins uMkhonto we Sizwe, the banned ANC’s military wing. Soon he falls out of favour with the powers that be and is sent to the Quatro detention centre. After years of torture, he is eventually released, when he begins his battle for vindication.  Out of Quatro is a story not only about Dyasop’s extraordinary life, but also about a tumultuous time in ANC history.
