Who are these Guptas who are so powerful, they're distributing cabinet posts like matrons handing out condoms at a brothel? Who do Americans think they are, accusing Trevor Noah of 'stealing' a joke from one of their comedians? Is Sizakele MaKhumalo Zuma's spaza shop a National Key Point? In #ZuptasMustFall, and other rants, Fred Khumalo runs riot, contemplating the pressing issues that continue to confound, infuriate and exasperate the nation - or to sink it into further controversy. Covering a wide range of topics, including politics, history, current events and celebrity gossip, this compilation of recent and new writings contains Khumalo's trademark blend of humour and shrewd analysis, as well as his treatment of everyday issues from a uniquely South African perspective. This is an entertaining collection of thoughts from one of the country's most seasoned journalists, offering many questions, and tongue-in-cheek answers, on who we are as a nation, where we are going, and how we compare to the rest of the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In #ZuptasMustFall and other rants, Khumalo's approach is fascinating in that it affords every reader a chance of escapism... He wants to show his readers how it feels to be an African living in America.... If you are pressed for knowledge, then drink from Fred Khumalo's cup of wisdom. This book offers a wide range of topics."--Keketso Mashigo "IOL "
"In #ZuptasMustFall and other rants, Fred Khumalo morphs into the foremost social commentator of the post-apartheid South Africa... In a nutshell, the book's about the idiosyncrasies of a nation - he warns us about unchecked xenophobia which may lead to ethnic cleansing, the life and shoes of Grace Mugabe, and the shenanigans of President Zuma's nephew - the larger than life Khulubuse... The collection is devastatingly honest in its analysis and commentary. It's jam-packed. It's scary. It's funny. It's serious. At once, it's poetic. At times, it's hilarious but, always, it's superbly written. One misplaced word could have ruined it. This collection is truly a masterpiece."--Bhekisisa Mncube
