During this time, Yusuf, whom she had met a few years ago in India when she visited her grandmother, succeeded to jump ship in Durban and travel to her family’s home in Worcester to find the love of his life. A few years after they got married, Yusuf was arrested as illegal immigrant. Bibi refused to divulge secrets about the whereabouts of people like Ray Alexander who had fled overseas, and she and Yusuf and their children had to leave South Africa for India – Bibi with an exit permit.
India proved another trial in many ways. Yusuf had to work as migrant laborer in Kuwait, while Bibi tried to keep the home fires burning and was considered a leader among the women around Sarwa. It was during the wedding ceremonies of their daughter that Bibi heard about Nelson Mandela’s release – and the possibility of returning to the country she longed to see again, suddenly became real. . .
