Pauw’s explosive new book on Zuma, ‘The President’s Keepers’ flies off the shelves

Citizen Reporter

Veteran journalist and author Jacques Pauw’s new book, The President's Keepers – Those keeping Zuma in Power and out of Prison, is already flying off the shelves at book stores.

The CEO of NB Publishers Eloise Wessels says 20,000 copies of the book were printed but orders were increasing and another 10,000 would be printed.

“The fact it has found such resonance with South Africans – especially with readers buying the book – goes to show how deeply concerned the public is with how our country has become a gangster state,” Wessels told The Times.

Among some of Pauw’s explosive claims include allegations that President Jacob Zuma earned R1 million a month from Royal Security –  a company owned by Durban businessman and well-known ANC-supporter Roy Moodley – after he was elected as the country’s president for  at least four months.

The book also claims that ANC presidential candidate Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma’s campaign was being funded by cigarette manufacturer Adriano Mazzotti, who is said to be a self-confessed smuggler, fraudster and money launderer.
