Abstract

Much has been said and commented by scholars, journalists and analysts in response to Dr Frank Chikane's book, . Several commentators have remarked that Chikane, a former Director General in die Office of the President during the Mbeki presidency, is in no position to write objectively about his term of office and his removal from the Office of the President by the ANC's National Executive Committee on 19 September 2008. This opinion might be valid to some extent, but it does not render Chikane's book insignificant. In fact, Chikane's version of Mbeki's removal is a valuable and noteworthy contribution to the available literature and the way the relevant dynamics have played out in top government circles in recent years.
