Description

‘In a week Hector will be dead. I saw it in a glitch.’ When Thuli reveals her secret – that she can see up to seven days into the future – to seasoned local journalist Helen, the latter is highly sceptical of the student’s claims. But as Thuli truly believes that #FeesMustFall protest leader, Hector, will be assassinated by a sinister force, Helen starts to look into the matter. And what she finds is some very odd behaviour by the police sent to “keep the peace” on campus. Police sent by Noné, South Africa’s President and Most Impressive Leader, who wants no trouble from pesky students while she plans the launch
of her zoo of creatures with extraordinary abilities.
One thing is certain: If what Thuli has seen is true, they have
only seven days to change the future ...
