“Brings back old memories”

Dr Albertinah Luthuli, daughter of ANC leader and Nobel Prize laureate Albert Luthuli, visited the Nordic Africa Institute on Tuesday.
– I am very pleased to visit Sweden and Norway. It brings back the old memories of when it was announced on the radio that the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize was my father. There was such joy around the village where we lived – and I feel the same way today. It is like history repeating itself and I dare say that my father, wherever he is now, must be pleased that his children have been able to come to see this place 50 years after he was given the Nobel Prize, says Dr Albertinah Luthuli.
