Political governance in South Africa has collapsed. Scandals of corruption, evidence of nepotism, rampant maladministration in provinces, incompetence in public offices and a general decline in the quality of leadership are there for all to see. In the authors’ view, this state of affairs has its origins in the messiness and collapse of the African National Congress. As helplessness deepens in our society, concerned citizens ask: What will happen to South Africa? The Fall of the ANC: What Next? seeks to answer this question of the fate that awaits the country.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The authors give sterling reasons why the ANC (and its allies) has fallen regardless of the fact that it is still the 'ruling' party in South Africa. The authors cannot be faltered on their eloquence in prose as they link history with the current status and as they make an attempt in predicting the future. They, however, do not present the "What Next", as expected. They instead indicate, and rightfully so, why opposition parties will also not make it; but that doesn't answer the question they posed in the title of the book.
They do though challenge the reader to take charge of their own citizenship. They however understated the need to address past and present racial issues; which cannot be resolved by a rapid forgive-and-forget approach.
This is a well written book which however doesn't really answer the critical question that it poses.
This is an extremely readable book. I read it in the run up to the South African National General elections in 2014.
It is not only a great insight into how the organisation works, but places its thinking into a historical context which is perhaps less known in general.
It is very well written, unlike so many other books in the genre.
