Nelson Mandela's granddaughter Zoleka is set to launch an explosive personal memoir on Monday that tells of her trials with drugs and sex addiction.

Speaking to the Sunday Times, Zoleka said her book, entitled When Hope Whispers, is a brutally honest account of the struggles she has faced for years.

She tells of how just days before her daughter, 13-year-old Zenani died in a car crash, she herself was recovering from a suicide attempt after setting her bedroom on fire.

Zoleka, is also a cancer survivor. She was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and initially rejected treatment.

She has since had a mastectomy and undergone chemotherapy.

She has one surviving child after losing a baby in 2011.

The baby was born three months prematurely and died soon after birth from organ failure.
