    ... at the same time as Mandela. It was sheer coincidence that he was leading a small group of students on a private study tour of the island. How we wished we could've joined him instead! The bus guide narrated the story of the time Mr Daniels was very ill, unable to move and confined in his cell. Nelson Mandela would visit him in his cell and would even take out his toilet bucket for him, clean it and dry it in the sun. Christo Brand mentions this in his book too " all ...
