South Africa is heading for deep trouble. Even the ANC knows it, and is consumed by fear, but – for many reasons – Cyril Ramaphosa has been unable to pull the ripcord and land the parachute safely. Here we are, then, hurtling towards the ground at terminal velocity. Can South Africa still be saved?
What awaits us in the 2020s and 2030s? Will the country continue down the path of state capture, corrupt leadership and economic downturn? Or can South Africa rise from Jacob Zuma’s lost decade and the devastating impact of COVID-19 to become a global economic powerhouse? And which scenarios lie in between?
In this incisive book, Frans Cronje pulls no punches. He analyses where we are, boldly predicts where we are headed, and warns that there is not much time left to prepare for our future.
A gripping and eye-opening read by a bestselling author and the country’s foremost scenario planner.
