Statement from ZP Dala

ZP Dala is now at home and sent PEN the following statement:

“I would like to thank PEN Centers in South Africa, America and the UK a million times over for mobilising so quickly and working so hard to secure my release from St. Joseph’s psychiatric hospital.

I felt myself slipping into a deeper depression while there. I felt cut off from the world and that my faculties were compromised by excessive medication.

I am now home with my family, laughing kids and overgrown garden.

Please convey my sincerest and most heartfelt thank you to all at PEN and all others who assisted in securing my release.”
