JOHANNESBURG - She’s back in the country and ready to set the record straight on her relationship with murdered right winger Eugene Terreblanche, her forced exile from the country and what makes a great newspaper columnist.

Jani Allan was a South African author and columnist, well known as a columnist for the Sunday Times throughout the 1980s.

At one stage she was considered to be the most famous person in South Africa, but was soon reviled just as much for having an alleged affair with the late Eugene Terre'Blanche. 

Although Allan denied the affair she fled to London in 1989 after her apartment was bombed. 

She has, however, made somewhat of a comeback. Jacana Media published Allan's memoirs, Jani Confidential, on 16 March.
