Chris Hani's daughter reflects on getting sober and writing tell-all book

Lindiwe Hani's new book, Being Chris Hani's Daughter launched in Cape Town this week.

It takes a deeper look at her personal battles with addiction, the bond she had with her father and coming face to face with his killer.

Hani has been two and a half years sober and says her never imagined making it this far.

She says she was hooked on cocaine and dagga, but tried to be a functioning addict as best as possible.

I could never have envisioned this, I wasn't ready to give up my drugs.

After a year of isolated sobriety and retrenchment, Hani approached her co-author and publisher Melinda Ferguson about sharing her story.

She spoke about the writing process, her reservations about the book, family dynamics and her relationship with her father.

Take a listen to the moving conversation:
