The obscene corruption described in this book is so unrelenting, tawdry and base, that I could not finish it.

Wow.... dog eats dog. Zuma clearly does not understand the lines between a public servant chosen by the people (and yes they keep on putting their faith in him) and getting his hands into all the pies of governance for his personal and cadres/friends gain. I must admit that the writing was not that clear but I assume that the way the last 10 years have been at the top of the ANC has also not been that clear i.e. infighting, fighting with the few independent people/institutes and the law.

The book is merely focuses on Zuma's flaws and corruption. The behind scenes of the ANC movement are shocking and an embrassement for the freedom that was fought.

There was nothing in this book I didn't already know - someone described it as a 'copy and paste' exercise and I'd go with that. I'm glad I read it though - just justified why I dislike Zuma so much.

With all that has happened since the beggining of Zuma's second term, the author must give us book 2. I'll be happy to help with a title :-)

Well researched and presenting well supported facts. Very interesting and shows the importance of responsible investigative journalism in exposing corruption and nepotism in politics.

mmmm....this book is quite frightening to read. It exposes alot about our South African government and shows how unhealthy our democracy is!

What a tangled web we weave when once we practice to deceive - wonder how Mr Zuma sleeps at night! Not an enjoyable read, but an eye opener.
