Here’s what may happen when Zuma goes (by political analyst Ralph Mathekga)

7 November 2016 8:18 PM

What impact will his departure have on South Africa and the ANC? Can we fix the damage — and how do we do that?

He will fight bitterly…

Ralph Mathekga

Brand ANC has suffered.

Ralph Mathekga

He may want to go, but he is beholden to the system he has created.

Ralph Mathekga

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Ralph Mathekga, Head of Political Economy at Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection, for his weekly business book review.

Mathekga discussed his book “When Zuma Goes”.

Description on Amazon:

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.
