Fate of the Nation

About this book

In "Fate of the Nation," Jakkie Cilliers addresses critical questions about South Africa's future, exploring the potential for an ANC split, a DA-led government, and an ANC-EFF alliance. He presents three scenarios: Bafana Bafana, Nation Divided, and Mandela Magic.

Cilliers highlights the ANC's internal power struggle between Jacob Zuma's Traditionalists and Cyril Ramaphosa's Reformers, leading to policy confusion and poor governance. The outcome of the ANC's December 2017 national conference will be crucial, determining which scenario unfolds.

"Fate of the Nation" is essential for understanding South Africa's potential futures.
