50 People Who Stuffed Up South Africa Paperback – February 1, 2011
by Alexander Parker (Author)

Delving into culture, politics, sports, and war, this list of the worst villains in South Africa’s history is inspired by books such as 110 People Who Are Screwing up America. The project provides a solid a roster of people have steered the good ship South Africa firmly in the wrong direction by virtue of their ruinous megalomania, foul beliefs, or general idiocy. Among those profiled are 1652 explorer Jan van Riebeeck, warmonger Lord Milner, Cecil Rhodes, and sports villain Richie Benaud.

Great read

This book has obviously had an alliterative influence from the book “50 People Who Have Buggered Up Britain”. It brings back lots of memories of self-interested behaviour by greedy and/or incompetent people. Some notable omissions are:
Mangosuthu “Gatsha” Buthelezi (Prince, Film star, Political thug, Orator).
The Gupta family, mentioned several times but deserve their own entry.
Aziz Pahad, bro of Essop, who believed that if a country had “Democratic” in its name it was democratic.
Alexander Steward (SA’s own Lord Haw-Haw) who placated English-speaking Nats.
Dennis Worral (of tricameral bathroom fame) may also warrant a mention.
