Launch of The land is ours by Tembeka Ngcukaitobi

The South African author Tembeka Ngcukaitobi has launched his investigative book “This land is ours” on the history of the first black lawyers in South Africa.

The lawyers looked around them and saw swift changes in the southernmost area of the African continent. They saw the need of a constitution and a system that was governed by this very constitution.
