About the Book

This book is about the struggle for political freedom in South Africa over the years as having disintegrated into a struggle against corruption. Solomon Mahlangu, Chris Hani and many others gave their lives only to water the tree of corruption that has destroyed the core South African economy and has set in a new struggle for economic freedom. It chronicles the history of a nation torn asunder by a political theory (apartheid) that diversified an otherwise unitary state. Unlike other Southern African countries namely Lesotho, Swaziland and Botswana, South Africa is a multi-racial-cultural state that needs an honest and truthful forgiveness and reconciliation to take its people forward into an economic freedom enjoyed by all and sundry. The book’s focus is a vision aimed at seeing corruption, which agreeably steals from the poor, disintegrating; and a journey beginning to unite the people of South Africa to together build a corruption free society and an economy addressing fundamentals. Papering over the cracks will not help nip our many challenges in the bud. The nature of the problem necessitates a hard hitting nail biting analysis of the truth. Interrogate your thoughts - together let’s build a new South African rainbow nation…
