Annotation

Another satirical winner from this sharp and witty creative team. The motley crew of Madam, Eve, Thandi and Mother Anderson are like old friends to most South Africans and their dysfunctional, chaotic and totally recognisable South African household is an unfailingly hilarious reflection of everyday life in this country.

Summary

From Julius Malema&;s tantrums to President Zuma&;s plane trips and from Bakkies Botha&;s booting to Helen Zille&;s toyi-toyiing, this record features a big and busy year in news from the Rainbow Nation. Offering a candid South African perspective of current events, this annual utilizes the usual cast of characters to illustrate the country&;s current political state.
