IN THE DYING YEARS OF APARTHEID, a most extaordinary story hit the headlines. Agent Olivia Forsyth had escaped from ANC imprisonment in Angola. Upon her return home she was feted as a hero by the government. In a flurry of media appearances and press release, Forsyth claimed to have infiltrated the ANC and passed on vital information.
Is that what really happened? In the world of espionage, truth is the first victim and nothing is as it seem. Here, for the first time and in her own words, South Africa’s most notorious apartheid spy lays bare the story of her life.
Olivia Forsyth was also known as agent RS407, codename Lara, lieutenant in the Security Branch of the South African Police, ANC comrade Helen Bronson, prisoner Thandeka, alias Christine Smith.
Forsyth is the mother of two daughters and currently lives with her husband in Italy.
