In 1977 R W Johnson published a book with the same title pertaining to the apartheid government. Now he poses the same question to the ANC. He provides a logical, fascinating analysis (even if it’s a horrified fascination) of the last 20 years, the nature of the ANC and Zuma’s rule, and the resulting backward slide of our country towards complete bankruptcy. Johnson foresees unemployment soaring; the rise of budget and trade deficits; foreign investment and domestic capital fleeing; downgrade by ratings agencies and ensuing junk bond status. Following this an International Monetary Fund bailout would impose conditions that may result in a regime change in one form or another. Because the ANC are so clearly and unarguably inept, let alone criminally corrupt, the “Looming Crises” Johnson refers to, may, in the long run, as he states, be positive. All South Africans should read this book – if only to awaken a sense of outrage at the systematic destruction the ANC have wrought.
