Irish-born Terry Crawford-Browne first came to South Africa in 1967. In the 1970s he started a family there and worked in the financial industry and gold trading. When the apartheid regime wanted his son to join the army in the 1980s, the banker became a peace activist. Later, Crawford-Browne worked with Bishop Desmond Tutu, among others, on the campaign for bank sanctions against the apartheid regime. In his new book “Eye on the Gold” Crawford-Browne writes the history of the gold rush in South Africa. In the interview we talk about the history of South Africa, the time of apartheid and the role gold played in it.
