Will the ANC split? Will the DA rule? A Scenario Expert on the fate of the SA...

As part of a weekly businesss book review; The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Scenario Expert Jakkie Cilliers about his book “Fate of the Nation: 3 Scenarios for South Africa's Future” .

Description on Amazon:

  • What does our future hold?

  • Will the ANC split within the next five years?

  • Could the DA rule the country in 2024?

  • Will the EFF form an alliance with the ANC?

  • What should we do to make our economy grow at levels that will impact on poverty and inequality?

  • Will we become a more tolerant or a more violent society?

In Fate of the Nation scenario expert Jakkie Cilliers answers all these and many other questions.

He has developed three detailed scenarios for our immediate future and beyond - Bafana Bafana, Nation Divided and Mandela Magic.

According to Cilliers, the ANC is in many ways paralysed by the power struggle between what he calls the Traditionalists (supporters of Jacob Zuma) and the Reformers (led by Cyril Ramaphosa and others).

This power struggle leads to policy confusion, poor leadership and general ineptitude in the civil service.

Key to which scenario will become our reality is who will be elected to the ANC's top leadership at their national conference in December 2017.

Whichever group wins will determine what our future holds.

We could also see a compromise grouping being selected, Cilliers says, in which case the Bafana Bafana scenario - where we simply muddle along as a country - is the strongest possibility.

A book for all concerned South Africans.
