‘An urgent and necessary book’: When Zuma Goes by Ralph Mathekga

This is an urgent and necessary book.

- Justice Malala, author of We Have Now Begun Our Descent: How to Stop South Africa Losing its Way

When Zuma GoesTafelberg is proud to present When Zuma Goes by Ralph Mathekga:

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 Zumaʼs leadership, and what will come after, in the spotlight.
