About this book

Rigtingbedonnerd | Current Affairs & Issues

Fred de Vries


Fred de Vries travels across the country to speak to well-known and ordinary Afrikaners to find out how they have dealt with their loss of political power since 1994.

He goes in search of their spiritual home, or Nkandla in president Zuma’s words. In the process he discovers their fears and the challenges they face, but also how they have carved out a place for themselves in a vastly changed landscape.

Read an interview with Fred on Litnet.

Om Afrikaner-wees beter te verstaan
Wilhelm Jordaan, Beeld


 Hy kry dit reg om mense vryelik te laat gesels en wat hy in die boek aanbied, met sy eiesoortige kommentare en nabetragtings tussen-in, is allesbehalwe droë onderhoudstof.

Die trant van die boek is tegelyk diep ernstig, lighartig, stuitig, kru, aweregs, indringend en, ja, ook rigtinggewend oor ’n beter verstaan van Afrikaner-wees in meervoud.
