Who are the greatest villains, the direst leaders, the foulest corrupters and the most offensive personalities to have spread their regrettable influence through our fine and glorious land - be it through politics, war, sport, culture or just their general idiocy? Well, take your pick...From Jan van Riebeeck in 1652 to Julius Malema in 2012 - via Basson, Botha, Shaka and Shaik - 50 People Who Stuffed Up South Africa is filled with the nastiest names to have besmirched our past. These are men of infamy (and three women) who have steered the good ship South Africa firmly in the wrong direction by virtue of their ruinous megalomania (Mbeki), twisted loyalty (Tshabalala-Msimang), irrepressible greed (Blatter), prime evil (De Kock) or utter incompetence (Erwin). But the obvious political gangsters and historical heavy-hitters are just the half of it: there's also the colonial warmonger (Lord Milner), the national embarrassment (Rudolph Straeuli), the social delinquent (The minibus taxi driver), the unexpected sports villain (Richie Benaud!), the career criminal (Ananias Mathe), the Euro-chancer (Mark Thatcher), the traitor (Kevin Pietersen) and the twat (Kevin Pietersen). Morons and militants, rogues and racists, together they tell a fascinating and wholly South African tale. The result is a (best-selling, critically acclaimed) book that is part popular history, part social commentary, and all entertainment.
