There is lament about how and why the ANC have so quickly become preoccupied with material enrichment. The logical question is: Were freedom fighters fighting for the socalled mythical 'masses of our people', or were they fighting for their self-actualisation as human beings, which the apartheid reality, was both negating and impeding? With apartheid over and global capitalism ruling supreme, could self-actualisation include the pursuit of material wealth? Did we not become so disengaged ourselves from being an engaged citizenry, that we passively expected our rulers to miraculously remain continuously 'lofty'? Former MK, business leader and political commentator, Oyama Mabandla, excavates the values that created a steady flow of pioneering South Africans under impossible circumstances, bolstered a liberation ethic and championed a leadership that made individual nobility and excellence aspirational. These values, maligned in 94, can still recapture the nation's best trajectory.

Critical whiteness studies is an offshoot of critical race theory that Thandiwe Ntshinga believes is desperately needed in South Africa. She pokes holes in the belief that leaving whiteness undisturbed for analysis creates justice and normalcy. Instead, she says perpetually studying the 'other' hinders our development. The title of this book comes from one of the first comments she received on Tiktok when discussing her findings and research.

Domestic Terror is a powerful book that sheds light on the plight of women who face domestic violence and the harsh realities they encounter when trying to protect themselves.
In South Africa, intimate partner violence is the leading cause of female homicide and often, the warning signs are ignored. The book delves into the stories of women who took matters into their own hands, refusing to wait until they were attacked to defend themselves.
Despite being driven to extreme measures, these women are met with a lack of empathy and understanding from the very institutions that are supposed to protect them. Through poignant case studies, the author exposes the limitations of our systems and challenges us to rethink our approach to domestic violence.

Uit polemieke en petaljes; rusies en romanses; herries en hofsake en wat nog put gesoute koerantman Hennie van Deventer ʼn ryk oes vir sy boeiende boek oor koerante en die nuus wat hul lewensbloed is.
Die veteraan van die perswese staan bekend as ʼn gebore en geesdriftige nuusmens. Hierdie is sy sewende boek met ʼn binneblik op die koerantwêreld. In ʼn onderhoudende keuse van stories met ongewone kinkels roer hy allerlei omstredenhede aan: Charlize Theron se “net 44 wat nog Afrikaans praat”, Amanda Gouws se verweer vir vroue wat vloek, Ton Vosloo se ontdekking van “'n ander Suid-Afrika”, die slagspreuk “Kill the Boer”….
Sy temas is talryk. Hy ryg die staaltjies en anekdotes in en verklap geheimpies uit redakteurskantore en raadsale. Wie humor soek, sal heelwat daarvan kry - ook heelwat politiek of lig op persoonlikhede: nie net huishoudelike name in die media nie, maar groot letterkunde-geeste soos die korrelkop Langenhoven, NP van Wyk Louw en Opperman, politici soos Verwoerd en Vorster, skoonhede soos prinses Diana en Anneline Kriel en, les bes, selfs ontkleedanseres Glenda Kemp.

When André de Ruyter took over as Eskom CEO in January 2020, he quickly realised why it was considered the toughest job in South Africa.

Aside from neglected equipment, ageing power stations and an eroded skills base, he discovered that Eskom was crippled by corruption on a staggering scale. Fake fuel oil deliveries at just one power station cost Eskom R100 million per month; kneepads retailing for R150 a pair were purchased for R80 000; billions of rands of equipment supposedly housed in the company's storerooms was missing.

Faced with police inaction, he was compelled to plunge into a world that was foreign to him - a world of spies and safe houses, of bulletproof vests and bodyguards. In Truth to Power, De Ruyter tells the behind-the-scenes story of how he launched a private investigation that exposed at least four criminal cartels feeding off Eskom. While fighting this scourge, he had to deal with political interference, absurd regulations, non-paying municipalities, unfounded accusations of racism, wildcat strikes, sabotage and a poisoning attempt.

De Ruyter takes the reader inside the boardrooms and government meetings where South Africa's future is shaped, with ministers often pulling in conflicting directions. He explains how renewable energy is the cheapest and quickest solution to our power crisis, in spite of fierce opposition from vested coal interests.

De Ruyter candidly reflects on his three years at the power utility, his successes and failures, his reasons for leaving and his hopes for the future. As someone who worked at the highest levels of the state but is not beholden to the ruling party, he is uniquely placed to speak truth to power.

We all try to influence others in our daily lives. We are all marketers, whether you are a manager motivating your team, an employee making a big presentation, an activist staging a protest or a company executive selling the next big thing. In For the Culture, Marcus Collins argues that the most powerful vehicle for influencing behaviour is true cultural engagement. To inspire communities, we first need to think hard about how we appeal to their values and what we will contribute to their culture. With a deep perspective based on a century's worth of data, Collins breaks down the many ways in which culture influences behaviour. Using captivating stories from his own life as a top marketer - including spearheading digital strategy for Beyoncé, working with iTunes and Nike+ on their collaboration, and designing ads for McDonalds - he shows readers how they can do the same. Full of memorable examples, from 1960s hippy culture to the enduring success of Patagonia, For the Culture offers the essential tools for creating lasting engagement and influence.

With corruption and fraud endemic in democratic South Africa, whistleblowers have provided an invaluable service to society through disclosures about coverups, malfeasance and wrongdoing. Their courageous acts have resulted in the recovery of millions of rands to the fiscus and to their fellow citizens as well as in improved transparency and accountability.

But in most cases, the outcomes for the whistleblowers themselves are devastating. Some have been gunned down in orchestrated assassinations, others have been threatened and targeted in sinister dirty-tricks campaigns. Many are hounded out of their jobs, ostracised and victimised. They are pushed to the fringes of society.

These are the evocative accounts of South Africa's whistleblowers, told in their own voices, from across the country. The Whistleblowers also advocates for a change in legislation, organisational support and social attitudes in order to embolden others to have the courage to step up.

Hoekom is ons ryker as ons voorsate? Wat het 'n Indonesiese vulkaan met die Groot Trek te doene? Hoe wen jy 'n Wêreldbeker? En wat het Karel die Grote gemeen met koning Zwelethini? Dit is maar enkele van die vrae wat die gewilde Rapportrubriekskrywer Johan Fourie onderhoudend verken in hierdie heerlik leesbare ekonomiese geskiedenis wat strek van die migrasie uit Afrika 100 000 jaar gelede tot vandag. Skatryk is 'n boeiende reis deur die geskiedenis wat ons wys hoe welvaart geskep en uitgebou word. Hoekom floreer een groep, maar 'n ander bly 'n sukkelbestaan voer? Fourie verduidelik in sy unieke, vermaaklike styl vol onverwagse feite waarom die bouers van 'n samelewing - eerder as dié wat afbreek - uiteindelik seëvier.

Buckle up for a tour of South Africa - your guide the inimitable Sihle Khumalo. Born in South Africa, and having lived here for almost fifty years, Khumalo reflects on the past and ponders the future of this captivating yet complex country. He delves into the history of the names given to our towns and cities (from Graaff-Reinet to Schweizer-Reneke to Zastron) and in the process raises issues we might not have interrogated fully.

This is a thought-provoking account by a South African who asks uncomfortable questions and forces his compatriots to contemplate what the future of this country (or cowntry) might hold. Why 'cowntry', Sihle? Consider the shady characters who've been milking this piece of land for centuries. And the fact that some politicians mispronounce the word 'country'. But who knows? Maybe it is not mispronunciation - perhaps they're giving us a message: the people in power are milking this country and it's all just a game…

In 2009, Aurora Empowerment Systems a black-owned, politically connected business, made a bid to rescue the liquidated Pamodzi Gold mines. Khulubuse Zuma, Michael Hulley and Zondwa Mandela, were listed as directors of Aurora. The company looked too good to be true – promising to turn the mines into a new business. Soon after the acquisition, cracks appeared. Many workers and suppliers went unpaid and Aurora-managed mines were stripped of assets, as illicit payments were made.

A dozen years in the making, The Inheritors weaves together the stories of three ordinary South Africans over five tumultuous decades in a sweeping and exquisite look at what really happens when a country resolves to end white supremacy.
* Political activist Dipuo, who fought to take down history's strictest segregationist system.
* Dipuo's daughter Malaika, who excels brilliantly after segregation's collapse but wrestles with her relationship to her mother and her duty to her country.
* And Christo, one of the last White South Africans drafted to fight for apartheid as it crumbled around him.
All three, and many others, had to remake their own lives while facing huge questions: What do we owe to history? And what will people who care about being good do when the meaning of right action changes nearly overnight? Observing subtle truths about race and power that extend well beyond national borders, Fairbanks explores questions that preoccupy so many of us today: How can we let go of our pasts, as individuals and as countries? How should historical debts be paid? And how can a person live an honorable life in a society that - for better or worse - they no longer recognise?

In South African higher education, the images of dysfunction are everywhere. Student protests. Violence. Police presence. Rubber or real bullets. Class disruptions. Burning tyres. Damaged buildings. Injury and sometimes death. Reports of wholesale corruption. Year after year, often in the same set of universities; the problem of routine instability seems insoluble. The financial, academic and reputational costs of ongoing dysfunction are high, especially for those universities caught-up in the never-ending struggle to overcome apartheid legacies. Any number of explanations have been ventured, including a lack of resources, shortage of capacity, rural location, corrupt officials, and endemic conflict. Corrupted takes a deeper look at dysfunction in an attempt to unravel the root causes in a sample of South African universities. At the heart of the problem lies the vexed issue of resources or, more pertinently, the relationship between resources and power: who gets what, and why? Whatever else it aspires to be-commonly, a place of teaching, learning, research and public duty-a university in an impoverished community is also a rich concentration of resources around which corrupt staff, students and those outside of campus all vie for access. Taking a political economic approach, Jonathan Jansen describes the daily struggle for institutional resources and offers accessible, sensible insights. He argues that the problem won't be solved through investments in 'capacity building' alone because the combination of institutional capacity and institutional integrity contributes to serial instability in universities. Rather, durable solutions would include the depoliticisation of university councils and appointments of academics with integrity and capacity to manage and lead these fragile institutions. This groundbreaking and long overdue study will offer a promising way forward for universities to better serve their communities and the country more broadly.

South Africa and its fraught political economy provide a fascinating case study into how it takes a particular brand of genius to thrive in a difficult domestic environment and to take the ideas and the businesses that deliver them from local to global. Genius tells the stories of some of the extraordinary individuals, companies and industries whose ideas, products and raw materials solve problems and add value across the globe. Greatness comes from acting on purpose, and there is a generation of South Africans solving problems for the future. Learn how Pratley beat Armstrong to the moon, how a former Eskom quantity surveyor capitalised on Britain's obsession with meerkats to create the UK's most visible price comparison website, how to take a Mediterranean-style food concept to the Mediterranean, and how a device designed to beat diamond smuggling made it from the set of a popular US hospital drama into emergency rooms and pathology labs across the US. Genius examines what it takes to thrive in an increasingly complex, fast-paced and divisive global environment. These are lessons for anyone looking to succeed anywhere against the odds.
