Enemy of the People is the first definitive account of Zuma’s catastrophic misrule, offering eyewitness descriptions and cogent analysis of how South Africa was brought to its knees – and how a people fought back. When Jacob Zuma took over the leadership of the ANC one muggy Polokwane evening in December 2007, he inherited a country where GDP was growing by more than 6% per annum, a party enjoying the support of two-thirds of the electorate, and a unified tripartite alliance. Today, South Africa is caught in the grip of a patronage network, the economy is floundering and the ANC is staring down the barrel of a defeat at the 2019 general elections. How did we get here Zuma first brought to heel his party, Africa’s oldest and most revered liberation movement, subduing and isolating dissidents associated with his predecessor Thabo Mbeki. Then saw the emergence of the tenderpreneur and those attempting to capture the state, as well as a network of family, friends and business associates that has become so deeply embedded that it has, in effect, replaced many parts of government. Zuma opened up the state to industrial scale levels of corruption, causing irreparable damage to state enterprises, institutions of democracy, and the ANC itself. But it hasnt all gone Zumas way. Former allies have peeled away. A new era of activism has arisen and outspoken civil servants have stepped forward to join a cross section of civil society and a robust media. As a divided ANC square off for the elective conference in December, where there is everything to gain or to lose, award winning journalists Adriaan Basson and Pieter du Toit offer a brilliant and up to date account of the Zuma era.

The year is 1901. The sun has set on a scorched landscape and the landscape welcomes the darkness. The barbed wire and rows of tents of the concentration camp are nothing but a black smudge on the plain. And on the edge of this a tent glows like a lantern.Anyone staring at this tent from the darkness would see against the bright tent cloth the silhouette of a man bent over the keyboard of a piano. Those looking from the darkness of the night would also be able to make out the upright form of a woman seated on the camp bed. Those listening from within the camp – those who had not already been fully taken in by the struggle between life and death – would perhaps hear behind the man’s clumsy piano playing the futile yearning, behind the wavering notes the silence that is greater than any sound.Years later Major Philip Brooks bends over a yellowing photograph in a library. And he tries to determine what it is that he sees in that photograph. He tries to remember what happened. It was him in that tent. The woman on the bed was the loveliest woman he had ever seen. The piano came from her house, one of the farmhouses that his soldiers burned down.Now he tries to see through the eyes of Joey Drew, the cross-eyed bungler from Somerset, England, who took the photographs. He looks at a photo of a woman with a baby in her arms. He knows that the father of the child did not know when he saw the photograph that the child was dead. That he was one of the thousands of victims of the concentration camps. He looks at a family photograph of the Van Wyks, and once more, before oblivion descends on all memories, as cold as the grave itself, he tries to piece together the story of the Van Wyks through Joey’s photographs. This novel is certainly the most outstanding example of P.G. de Plessis’s storytelling. Through each of the unforgettable Van Wyks and their subfarmers the Minters, he brings a private, personal tragedy into the broader misery of the war, and in this way the war material becomes an entanglement of extremely intense human dramas, unforgettable descriptions of futile love, shattered dreams and the destruction of humanity. The story of Daantjie and Magrieta van Wyk is central, he a clever Dick and she the most beautiful woman. They survive the war, but then as bearers and representatives of the extremes of human nature that are brought to a head by the war.The English officer Philip Brooks also survives the war, and this bleak history gains a new relevance in his mind. Du Plessis’s novel is truly one of the greatest works about the Boer War, but it is also a piece that asks questions, in a contemporary idiom, about how we remember, what we remember and the implications of forgetting. And certainly the purest answer to these questions is the fact that his book is an unforgettable reading experience.
