Description

‘Ralph Mathekga has become one of South Africa’s most respected political analysts because he is obsessed with the future. In this valuable book, Mathekga begins to fill the void at the heart of our political discourse: how do we fix the damage of the Zuma years?

‘The questions are tough and the answers are not easy to find. Mathekga takes a hard look at our past, present and future, and, in his usual, unflinching style, takes our hand and begins to show us the path out of our current quagmire.’
– Justice Malala, political analyst

 When Jacob Zuma retires to Nkandla, what will be left behind?

South Africa has been in the grip of the ‘Zunami’ since May 2009: Scandal, corruption and allegations of state capture have become synonymous with the Zuma era, leaving the country and its people disheartened.

But Jacob Zuma’s time is running out. Whether he leaves the presidency after the ANC’s national conference in 2017, stays on until 2019, or is forced to retire much sooner, the question is: what impact will his departure have on South Africa, its people and on the ruling party? Can we fix the damage, and how?

Ralph Mathekga answers these questions and more as he puts Zuma’s leadership, and what will come after, in the spotlight.
