Adriaan Basson

Adriaan Basson is the assistant editor of City Press and the author of Finish & Klaar: Selebi’s Fall from Interpol to the Underworld (2010). He is an award-winning investigative journalist who has received numerous prizes for journalistic excellence, including the Taco Kuiper and Mondi awards.

His first book, Finish & Klaar, was shortlisted for the Sunday Times Alan Paton Award in 2011.

From Schabir Shaik to The Spear, Jacob Zuma has been at the centre of controversy both before and after he became South Africa’s number one citizen. As president, he has seemingly lurched from one bad decision to another. This explosive, roller-coaster account traces the unravelling of a likeable but deeply flawed leader who came to power as victim, not visionary.

How did Zuma wriggle out of corruption charges to become president of the ANC and South Africa? Who provided him with the secret spy tapes that got him off the hook? And why did he appoint so many dubious characters to run key state institutions? Award-winning journalist Adriaan Basson answers these and other questions in this gripping look at the president’s dark side.
