The author explains what motivated him to write the book and some of the sub-themes he included in the story.

South African author and scholar Jonny Steinberg has published his latest book titled One Day in Bethlehem.

The book centres around what actually happened at 4.10pm on 2 April 1992, on the outskirts of Bethlehem, the time and the location of the crime for which Fusi Mofokeng and Tshokolo Mokoena were sentenced to life in prison.

Steinberg tells Eusebius McKasier that the inspiration for the book came from a news story in Sunday Times.

Here is a man (Mofokeng) who had more reason to be angry than anyone else I ever met in my life walking out of prison and seeing change.

Jonny Steinberg, Author

He sees a white waitress serving him, he sees all the RDPs that have been built to the extent that he doesn't recognise Bohlokong anymore.

Jonny Steinberg, Author

I thought: 'What happened to this man's head over the 19 years to see so much change and see so much hope?'

Jonny Steinberg, Author
