VERA CHIRWA--FEARLESS FIGHTER

An autobiography

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Vera Chirwa's story is one of betrayal, imprisonment, torture and exile. Yet it is also a story of hope, inspiration and extraordinary bravery. Born under Brutish colonial rule, even as a child she was aware of the injustice meted out to her as an African and a girl.

While struggling for her education, she met and fell in love with Orton Chirwa, a charismatic teacher and activist. From then on their fates became intertwined with the politics of their country after independence. As a campaigner, politician, lawyer, wife and mother, Chirwa has left an indelible mark on Malawian politics. Her life embodies African struggles against colonialism and corruption.
