I have been following the Nkandla saga since the release of the Mail and Guardian breaking news early December 2009. Reading this short quick-read book helped put developments onto a logical timeline. At the time of writing my comment is just a few days before the next elections in South Africa. One can only wonder in amazement that the majority will really re-elect Jacob Zuma to another 5 year term with all the obfuscation, corruption, incompetence, lies, and 5 years of broken promises boiling around him and his cronies. Following this path could result in South Africa becoming another Zimbabwe with a collapsed economy and greater social unrest. What is sadly amusing is that the ANC supporters have been brainwashed into believing that a vote against the ANC is a vote to reintroduce an apartheid government.

"Nkandla", a factual, honest disclosure.
This book had to be written by someone. Too much conjecture, and surmise has gone by, without a someone putting it into the right perspective.One is reviewing an individual and his supposed actions, and also that of his cronies and advisers. If it is factually true ,it is disturbing.The readers must judge for themselves. When can ignorance of events be claimed as an excuse.A true leader must have all the facts at their fingertips.If their advisers get it wrong --often, then fire them Who in the end is the scapegoat.! ?
Who would be a Politician? Mind you they get paid good money by the tax payers (et al). .
The ending of the book needs some rounding off. Probably the author is waiting for a "satisfactory" conclusion.
While nothing in this book is new and everything could be found in the public domain, this book is a great summarization of the Nkandlagate scandal, presenting facts about Nkandla and some issues the M&G ran in to publishing some information about Nkandla at the time. If you want to learn more about Nkandla but don't want to or don't have the time to sift through the past several years of archived news - this is the perfect book for you.
