The Day I Died (Paperback)Thembelani Ngenelwa
Paperback Published: 15/04/2007
- Not in our warehouse
Thembelani Ngenelwa is a personable 20-something guy who can't find a good job in Cape Town. Like many of his peers, he goes to Jo'burg in search of work and to catch up with old friends. After leaving a friend's house in an informal settlement one night, Thembelani and three companions are attacked by a group of gunmen. Running for their lives, the friends scatter in all directions, and Thembelani is chased after and shot five times at point-blank range, before being dragged over a railway crossing to die. Having sustained such serious injuries - and after being in a coma for four days - there is little hope that Thembelani will survive. Through his own tenacity, and the support of his friends and the hospital staff, he makes a full recovery.
