When Johan Booysen hears that the new Provincial Police Chief takes backhanders from a Durban businessman, he decides to give her the benefit of the doubt. But the evidence becomes impossible to ignore and he soon gets dragged down the corridors of power and politics into a web of intrigue, deceit and betrayal that, at times, he has trouble making sense of. Only when he is arrested, handcuffed and tossed into a cell does Booysen realise just how ruthless those opposed to him are - an opposition he comes to call the 'cabal' - and whom he believes have more blood on their hands than the so-called Cato Manor Death Squad with which he is closely associated. Blood on their Hands traces Johan Booysen's life and career - from patrolling the streets of Amanzimtoti in the 1970s to his rise in 2010 to major general and head of KZN's Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation unit, the Hawks. But his tenure is short-lived. When Booysen decides to take on those so determined to be rid of him, each legal battle he wins is met by hostility and further efforts to shut him out of the of the criminal justice system. But capitulating is not in his DNA... -- page 4 of cover.

In 1977, Johnson's best selling How Long Will South Africa Survive? offered a controversial and highly original analysis of the survival prospects of apartheid. Now, after more than two decades of the ANC in government, he believes the question must be posed again. "The big question about ANC rule," Johnson writes, "is whether African nationalism would be able to cope with the challenges of running a modern industrial economy. Twenty years of ANC rule have shown conclusively that the party is hopelessly ill equipped for this task. Indeed, everything suggests that South Africa under the ANC is fast slipping backward and that even the survival of South Africa as a unitary state cannot be taken for granted. The fundamental reason why the question of regime change has to be posed is that it is now clear that South Africa can either choose to have an ANC government or it can have a modern industrial economy. It cannot have both."

The story of a rogue unit operating within the South African Revenue Service (SARS) became entrenchedin the public mind following a succession of sensational reports published by the Sunday Times in 2014.The unit, the reports claimed, had carried out a series of illegal spook operations: they had spied onPresident Jacob Zuma, run a brothel, illegally bought spy ware and entered into unlawful tax settlements. In a plot of Machiavellian proportions, head of the elite crime‐busting unit Johann van Loggerenberg andmany of SARSs top management were forced to resign. Van Loggerenbergs select team of investigators,with their impeccable track record of busting high‐level financial fraudsters and nailing tax criminals, lostnot only their careers but also their reputations. Now, in this extraordinary account, they finally get to put the record straight and the rumours to rest:there was no rogue unit. The public had been deceived, seemingly by powers conspiring to capture SARSfor their own ends.Shooting down the allegations he has faced one by one, Van Loggerenberg tells the story of what reallyhappened inside SARS, revealing details of some of the units actual investigations.

This book daringly challenges one of the most controversial murder cases in recent South African history. In 2007 Fred van der Vyver was acquitted of the 2005 murder of his girlfriend Inge Lotz. He then sued the police to the highest court for malicious prosecution - and failed. In spite of the defence's trashing of the prosecution's case at the trial, brothers Thomas and Calvin Mollett provide a compelling argument of how every key element of the prosecuting evidence withstands the closest scrutiny. They use models, measurements, forensic tests, mathematical formulae and the views of experts both here and overseas. The authors show how an ornamental hammer found in Van der Vyver's vehicle, but thrown out as evidence, could match Inge's head wounds. Contrary to the claim accepted in court, they convincingly argue that a disputed fingerprint was not lifted off a drinking glass found in Inge's flat - a detail that could make all the difference. They demonstrate how blood marks on a towel could have come off the hammer, how blood stains on the floor could have been shaped by a specific shoe and how a closer look at cell phone records reveals a different choreography of movements than what was accepted by the court.

"The Grandfather African" is a book about the convicted Czech criminal Radovan Krejčíř. The action takes place in South Africa, to where Krejčíř fled in 2007 to avoid being jailed in the Czech Republic for a billion-crown fraud and conspiracy to commit murder. The book is written in a journalistic style and based on real events. It was the basis for the film “Gangster KA: African.” Krejčíř had become a major boss in the South African underworld. In February 2016 he was sentenced to 35 years in prison there. The book thoroughly maps out the investigation into Krejčíř’s illegal activities. In South Africa, already a dozen people in his circles have died. Whether with a single shot to the head or their bodies riddled with bullets, many of his friends – not to mention his main rivals and business associates in money laundering or drug trafficking – have died violent deaths. Before establishing his drug business in South Africa, Krejčíř did away with his main competitors. The most serious among them was Cyril Beeka, the crime boss of Cape Town. Beeka was assassinated – shot down on the street hit-and-run style. In South Africa the prominent German businessman Uwe Gemballa, who supplied Krejčíř with luxury cars, also met a grisly end. Six months after he disappeared, Gemballa’s corpse was found in a shallow grave in the bush, near Pretoria. Assassins also dispatched of Lolly Jackson, who owned lucrative strip clubs throughout South Africa, and did real estate deals and made other investments with Krejčíř. His next associate to be shot dead in the street was Bassam Issa, a Lebanese national known as "Cripple Sam", who had invested in Krejčíř’s pawn shops and wanted to be paid back.

This is the book Jacob Zuma does not want you to read. From Schabir Shaik to The Spear, Jacob Zuma has been at the centre of controversy both before and after he became South Africas citizen number one. As president, he has seemingly lurched from one bad decision to another. This explosive, roller-coaster account traces the unravelling of a likeable but deeply flawed leader who came to power as victim, not visionary. How did Zuma wriggle out of corruption charges to become president of the ANC and South Africa? Who provided him with the secret spy tapes that got him off the hook? And why did he appoint so many dubious characters to run key state institutions? As Zuma desperately tries to cling to power, award-winning journalist Adriaan Basson answers these and other questions in this gripping look at the presidents dark side.

"In 1972 Craig Williamson, a big, burly, bearded man, walked onto Wits University and registered as a student. He joined the National Union of South African Students (Nusas), and was on the frontline in the war against apartheid. At one march he was beaten up, arrested and spent a year on trial. Williamson rose up through the student movement's ranks to become the Nusas vice president. After being harassed by security police and having his passport seized, he decided to flee the country to continue his activism with the International University Exchange Fund (IUEF), an anti-apartheid organisation in exile. He was eventually appointed the Fund's deputy director. As the IUEF's money man, Williamson had access to powerful ANC and Black Consciousness leaders. He joined the ANC and formed his own unit to carry out clandestine work to topple the National Party government. But Williamson was not the anti-apartheid activist his friends and comrades thought he was. In January 1980, Captain Williamson was unmasked as a South Africa spy. His handler, Colonel Johan Coetzee, the head of South Africa's notorious security branch, flew to Sweden to bring him and his wife back home. Williamson was described as South Africa's superspy who penetrated the KGB. Williamson returned to South Africa and during the turbulent 1980s worked for the foreign section of the South African Police's security branch. Two years after he left Switzerland he returned to Europe under a false name and with a crack squad of special force officers to blow up the ANC's headquarters in London. He was also responsible for a parcel bomb that killed Ruth First in Mozambique and the bomb that killed Jeanette Schoon and her 6-year-old daughter Katryn in Angola. He left the security branch to join Military Intelligence and finally the State Security Council"--Publisher's description.

"[This] is a riveting, behind-the-scenes account of the turbulent eight-day period in September 2008 that led to the removal of Thabo Mbeki as president of South Africa. As secretary of the cabinet and head (director-general) of the presidency at the time, Frank Chikane was directly responsible for managing the transition from Mbeki to Kgalema Motlanthe, and then on to Jacob Zuma, and was one of only a few who had a front-row seat to the unfolding drama. [This book] builds substantially on the so-called Chikane Files, a series of controversial articles Chikane published with Independent Newspapers in July 2010, to provide an insider's perspective on this key period in South Africa's recent history and to explore Thabo Mbeki's legacy."--Back cover.
