Investigative journalist Jacques Pauw exposes the darkest secret at the heart of Jacob Zuma’s compromised government: a cancerous cabal that eliminates the president’s enemies and purges the law-enforcement agencies of good men and women.  As Zuma fights for his political life following the 2017 Gupta emails leak, this cabal – the president’s keepers – ensures that after years of ruinous rule, he remains in power and out of prison. But is Zuma the puppet master, or their puppet? Journey with Pauw as he explores the shadow mafia state. From KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape to the corridors of power in Pretoria and Johannesburg – and even to clandestine meetings in Russia. It’s a trail of lies and spies, cronies, cash and kingmakers as Pauw prises open the web of deceit that surrounds the fourth president of the democratic era. ‘An amazing piece of work, stuffed with anecdote and evidence. It will light fires all through the state and the ANC.’ -Peter Bruce ‘This is dynamite. Dynamite that will shake the foundations of the halls of power.’ -Max du Preez Jacques Pauw is a superb investigative journalist and the author of four highly acclaimed books. From the Vrye Weekblad to this book , he goes bravely where others fear to tread.The winner of multiple awards, this will be a special interview.
