Presentation and discussion on the research report “Betrayal of the Promise: How South Africa is Being Stolen” Join Cornerstone Institute for a discussion with Professor Mark Swilling on what many consider a seminal contribution in advancing and protecting our constitutional democracy. President Jacob Zuma has presided over a “silent coup” under the cover of supposed radical economic transformation, researchers from the universities of Cape Town, Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, and Stellenbosch argue in this report. Now that the evidence is available, the nation must “defend the founding promise of democracy … by doing all that is necessary to stop the systemic and institutionalized process of betrayal that is now in its final stage of execution. It is not too late,” they say. Zuma’s presidency has gone beyond corruption, the academics argue in their collaborative work, Betrayal of the Promise: How South Africa is Being Stolen, and even goes beyond state capture.
