 More about the book!

The new episode of Pagecast, the podcast from Jonathan Ball Publishers, is out now!

In this week’s episode, CapeTalk Breakfast Show host Lester Kiewit is joined by top-selling author Pieter du Toit to chat about his latest book, The ANC Billionaires: Big Capital’s Gambit and the Rise of the Few.

In The ANC Billionaires top-selling author Du Toit investigates whether secret deals were struck between capital and the liberation movement to ensure the status quo remains in terms of economic policy. He also shows how the ANC was completely unprepared to navigate the intersection between business and politics.

The book draws on first-hand accounts by major role players about the contentious relationship between capital and the ANC before, during and after the country’s transition to democracy.

It also sheds light on the millionaires and billionaires who have benefited from their relationship to the party, and with business.

Pagecast offers you insider interviews with recently published authors, looking into the process of writing, exploring the narratives within and providing you with the story behind the story.
