Summary A gripping page-turner that courageously exposes the intrigues underway and threats to our young democracy.Ronnie Kasrils's insights into Jacob Zuma in A Simple Man, both shocking and revelatory, are vividly illuminated through this story, from their shared history in the underground to Kasrils's time as minister of intelligence and his views on South Africa now. Our understanding of Zuma the struggle hero, now perceived as having sold his soul to the devil, becomes clearer through this narrative.This fast-paced, thriller-style memoir outlines the tumultuous years that saw Mbeki's overthrow and replacement by Zuma, Nkandlagate, the growing militarisation of the police and the Marikana Massacre, the outrageous appointment of flunkies to high office, the Faustian Pact'. This is a story told from the inside, and after reading it, you will understand not only the many machinations of power, but also how one man's struggle for the truth can have such an impact on the political outcomes of the nation.
