A German writer who collects material for his books by disguising himself says a project he wanted to do in Soweto collapsed when anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela was released from prison in 1990.
Guenter Wallraff, whose 1985 book Lowest of the Low documented the work and living conditions of Turkish guest workers in Germany, was speaking on Wednesday to a packed audience at the Goethe Institute in Johannesburg.
"At the beginning of the 1990s I had prepared a project in Soweto," Wallraff said.
Wallraff said South African writer Breyten Breytenbach had helped him plan the project but cancelled it when Mandela was released from prison.
Breytenbach himself spent years in prison for his own activities against the apartheid government.
He said he would set up a foundation named after him to help young journalists uncover injustices in the workplace. - Sapa-dpa
