Solomon’s Story

To help his family survive Solomon sells apples on the platform at Denneboom train station in Mamelodi. It is 1976, and the closure of schools after the Soweto riots leaves Solomon and his friends with few choices other than to accept their place in apartheid South Africa or to leave the country and try to force change. Solomon chooses to fight for freedom and embarks on a life in exile as a member of Umkhonto we Sizwe. A year later he is sent back to South Africa as an operative, with tragic consequences.

Solomon’s Story is a fictional account of the true story of Solomon Mahlangu, a young hero who paid the ultimate price in his contribution to South Africa’s freedom.

The fact that Froman has captured this small piece of South African history for the youth is, in itself, inspirational.’ – Tshepo Tshabalala, The Star

Solomon’s Story goes well beyond sociology or social history by trying to see through the eyes of the ANC struggle martyr Solomon Mahlangu.’ – Drew Forest, Mail & Guardian
