The Rainbow has no pink is a fast paced novel looking at the past, the present and what the real meaning of justice is.

It took me 4 years from first hearing about the true story behind the abuse of young conscripts in the South African Defence Force. Many of the perpetrators of these abuses never faced any charges and some still live and practice medicine in the free world today while their victims live tortured lives with no hope of justice prevailing. This novel is work of fiction but is inspired by actual events that took place in South Africa during the 1970's and 1980's

“We have looked the beast in the eye. Our past will no

of God will hold hands and say, ‘Never again! Nooit weer!
Ngeke futhi! Ga reno tlola!’”
