Book Description:
The Thabo Mbeki I Know is a collection that celebrates one of South Africa’s most exceptional thought leaders. The contributors include those who first got to know Thabo Mbeki as a young man, in South Africa and in exile, and those who encountered him as a statesman and worked alongside him as an African leader. In The Thabo Mbeki I Know, these friends, comrades, statesmen, politicians and business associates provide insights that challenge the prevailing academic narrative and present fresh perspectives on the former president’s time in office and on his legacy – a vital undertaking as we approach a decade since an embattled Thabo Mbeki left office.Edited by Sifiso Mxolisi Ndlovu and Miranda Strydom, The Thabo Mbeki I Know provides readers with an opportunity to reassess Thabo Mbeki’s contribution to post-apartheid South Africa, as both deputy president and president, to the African continent and diaspora, as a highly respected state leader, and to the international community as a whole.A book that set out to honour Thabo Mbeki in fact unveils some quite remarkable women and men who make this collection absorbing reading. Presidents, bodyguards, busy mothers, passionate economists, judges, lawyers, insurgent diplomats, tenacious politicians and many others who have come into his orbit share stories of the Thabo Mbeki they know. This is no anthology of praise songs. Here you will find affection but also candid portraits of the man who detests personality cults.’ – Barney AfakoThis collection presents a combination of personal and political accounts of Thabo Mbeki, his passage from youth to manhood, from political apprenticeship under Oliver Tambo to the presidency of South Africa, and his fall from that dizzy height.’ – Mahmood Mamdani
