Samora Machel led FRELIMO, the Mozambican Liberation Front, to victory against Portuguese colonialism in 1974, and the following year became independent Mozambique’s first President.
He died eleven years later in a mysterious plane crash. Drawing on stories, speeches, documents, and the memories of those who knew him, Sarah LeFanu presents the many different faces of the man Nelson Mandela called ‘a true African revolutionary’.
