More Truth, Lies and Propaganda: in Africa  by Lucinda E Clarke

I just finished reading this well written book and my review follows the author’s blurb found on Amazon.

“More unbelievable tales from behind the camera lens, as Lucinda and her ‘rainbow crew’ travel across South Africa. They meet Mandela, endure a terrifying helicopter ride and empathize with the forlorn Bushmen. There are riots, an abandoned patient, a ram with an identity crisis and a house that disappears. Their stories are both hilarious and heartbreaking, revealing the truth about what goes on behind the scenes in the media. This book proves that propaganda is alive and well on television screens across the world.”

Clarke has written and enlightening memoir of her trip in South Africa with her media company documenting the entire way. Clarke spins and weaves humor throughout, from meeting Nelsen Mandela and into the bush with the bush men. This narrative is highly detailed and certainly a great read for those who haven’t actually ‘lived’ in South Africa. Not all is sparkling and glittery; and certainly not bullet ridden doors of schools and lack of sanitation combined with AIDS and other various details of South African life. I will leave details about South African politics and traditional medicine usage for those who read after me.
