Jacques Pauw onthul in Our Poisoned Land, die opvolg op sy wegholtreffer The President’s Keepers, hoe ons “eie Guptas” skaamteloos in weelde leef terwyl die armes krepeer. Wat het verkeerd geloop?

After Cyril Ramaphosa became president in 2018, South Africans were hoping that the state capturers would be prosecuted and jailed. Now, many years later, the pillagers are still walking free, crime is out of control and law enforcement agencies seem to be toothless. In Our Poisoned Land, the sequal to the insanely successful The President’s Keepers, Jacques Pauw reveals how our “own Guptas” continue to live in splendour while the poor are suffering. What went wrong?

Wat het Volodymyr Zelensky, Donald Trump, Emmanuel Macron en Herman Mashaba in gemeen? Hulle is almal buitestaanders wat hoofstroompolitiek betree het. Mashaba is ’n besigheidsmagnaat wat beroerings in die politieke landskap veroorsaak het. Eers was hy die DA-burgemeester van Johannesburg, waarna hy sy eie politieke party, Action SA, tot stand gebring het. In ’n kort tydjie kon hy soveel stemme op hom verenig dat hy vandag ’n beduidende rol in onstuimige koalisieregerings speel.

In a short time, he managed to gather enough votes to make him a force to be reckoned with in the boisterous world of coalition politics.
