Readers of The Cape Messenger constantly complain about our use of Black Opinion, the mouthpiece of the Black First Land First movement. But we are running this story to give you an insight into the thinking in the Zupta faction of the ruling party, which they punt. Here they suggest that The President’s Keepers, authored by journalist Jacques Pauw, is actually written by axed Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan. You be the judge.
Shocking news! ‘The President’s Keepers’ was actually written by the former Minister of Finance, Pravin Gordhan, writes a Black Opinion staff writer
Black Opinion continues: The book, which is a praise poem to white monopoly capital, is marked as authored by one Jacques Pauw. But now sources have revealed that the book was actually written by Pravin Gordhan to get back at President Jacob Zuma.
Pravin Gordhan was seen signing autographs of the book in Johannesburg. The tradition and convention of autographing a book is a task reserved for the author of the book. Pravin Gordhan seems to have been carried away by the number of white people who attended the book launch and forgot he was the ghostwriter.
Many people were shocked by this signing of books by Pravin Gordhan. Now we know he wrote the book to attack President Zuma as part of the white monopoly capital fight back against Radical Economic Transformation (RET).
Black Opinion is the voice of Andile Mngxitama, former Economic Freedom Fighters MP, who now leads the radical Black First Land First movement. Readers must judge its stories from whence it comes.
