“He [Zuma] is a gangster like us”
Fascinating and frightening in equal measure and a definite must-have if you have half a brain and give a damn about South Africa

How so much of this was left to continue, despite media warnings, beggars belief. Discussions with friends from the UK, without exception, look at me in utter disbelief that any country, let alone SA, could allow so many departments in the public sector to behave in this way. This tragedy will affect the lives of many, for a long time to come. So much money has been was wasted, so many lives adversely affected. Business confidence, budgets and the currency has been diluted. Its a real, Cry the beloved country story.' SA deserves better.
I think Jacques Pauw has given us a gift. A gift to wake us up and do the right thing. To sort this systemic problem out in the short, medium and long term. So many bought into the concept of the rainbow nation and have been deceived and cheated.
I think that the book was written in a hurry, under difficult and possibly dangerous circumstances. Hence, typos crept in here and there and editing suffered to get the narrative to flow. The big picture does got lost in places. This is such a minor issue considering that the publishers are already dealing with a cease and desist notice. This comes as no surprise. This is precisely why people should read the book - 'because absolute power corrupts absolutely.' This is an excellent effort and a much needed, thought provoking book.
Jacques, be safe and thank you.
What does matter are the simple principles of honesty and trust, and that you believe the people who lead (us all).
I can't say I believe in the leadership. Even if I was super sceptical and thought only 5% of this book was true, it's more than enough for anyone rational to doubt the leadership.
Regardless of where you stand, just read the book and open your mind. You won't put it down.
It also shows what happens when the powerful get cornered their animal instinct kicks in "fight or flight" and reality just seems to fade off in the distance all that is left is their destruction. A good read for every person other than a south African as they left with questions on how has this land come from so much, to what we have read in this book.
