The brother of the former South African president lets rip at the ruling party.

The author of Architects of Poverty, and deputy chair of the South African Institute of International Affairs, is also the outspoken brother to South Africa’s former President Thabo Mbeki.

He is critical of the inaction of President Cyril Ramaphosa, and says that the ruling ANC is now just a job distribution machine

Mbeki points to possible ways out – including the potential for a popular uprising. Are conditions ripe for a South African Spring?

Understand Africa's tomorrow... today

We believe that Africa is poorly represented, and badly under-estimated. Beyond the vast opportunity manifest in African markets, we highlight people who make a difference; leaders turning the tide, youth driving change, and an indefatigable business community. That is what we believe will change the continent, and that is what we report on. With hard-hitting investigations, innovative analysis and deep dives into countries and sectors, The Africa Report delivers the insight you need.
