President Jacob Zuma has had a disastrous term in office.

Adriaan Basson, author and News24 editor

Adriaan Basson, author and News24 editor

Pieter du Toit, author and Huffington Post editor

Pieter du Toit, author and Huffington Post editor

The institutions of democracy have been eroded.

Pieter du Toit, author and Huffington Post editor

Take a listen to the riveting discussion about the book:
