About this book:

Comrade Editor is the story of Gwen Lister, the activist journalist who achieved global renown for opposing South Africa’s occupation of Namibia. Lister cut her journalistic teeth with Hannes Smith at the Windhoek Advertiser. Together they started the Windhoek Observer. When increased pressure from the white establishment forced her out, she founded The Namibian in 1985.  

A brave and honest account of the personal and professional journey of one of Africa’s foremost journalists.
