Radio Interviews with Prof Dean on “Awakening The Lion” – Listen Here

Following the publication of Prof Owen Dean’s latest book, “Awakening The Lion – The Case Of The Lion Sleeps Tonight” by Tafelberg, and the University’s subsequent press release (available here), our incumbent chair of IP has been inundated with requests for an interview with him from various members of the media. It is not surprising that this unique book, and the internationally headlining story it recounts, would attract widespread interest – least of all from South African radio. It is, after all, a proudly South African story about the worldwide victory in a case that made legal history and restored to a South African family that which was rightfully theirs.
