WHITE LIES (article first published : 2004-10-22)

White Lies by Denis Herbstein traces the fascinating history of the colourful John Collins , Canon of St.Paulís Cathedral, and his long-term relationship with the liberation fighters of South Africa. Founder of IDAF - The International Development and Aid Fund, John Collins and his team injected literally tens of millions of pounds into the battle against apartheid, from the early 1950s through to the 1980s.

Denis Herbstein was born in Cape Town, where he studied law and began his career as a journalist on the Cape Times. He has since worked for several British newspapers. In 1976, while in South Africa reporting for the London Sunday Times and Guardian newspapers, he was deprived of his South African citizenship and expelled by the apartheid government. He now works for the Financial Times in London.
