About this book:

With Jacob Zuma presiding over an inept kleptocracy lurching from one dysfunction to the next, clearly what was needed was a distraction from bigger issues . . . and so Africa's oldest liberation movement launched a crazed assault on artistic freedom by mobilising against a painting featuring Zuma's penis. With razor sharp wit, journalist and commentator Andrew Donaldson explores what can be termed the ruling party's Achilles “piel”.
