A Simple Man: Kasrils and the Zuma enigma by Ronnie Kasrils

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 resistance movement 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, gradually becomes clearer through this narrative.

Books will be available for sale.
