Cory Library's new publication, Titan without a Profile: The Life and Times of Wilton Mkwayi, will be launched at the Cory Library on Thursday 26 March 2020.

Wilton Zimasile Mkwayi (17 December 1923 – 24 July 2004) was an African National Congress veteran and one of the first six members of Umkonto weSizwe to be sent for military training. Mkwayi was one of the 156 co-accused in the 1956 Treason Trial for supporting the Freedom Charter calling for a non-racial democracy and a Socialist-based economy.

He was sentenced in December 1964 in the Little Rivonia Trial and sent to Robben Island. Mkwayi was released from Robben Island on 10 October 1989.
