Mhambi's qoutables: Xolela Mangcu on Mbeki and Ronald Suresh Roberts

Xolela Mangcu on the writer who is trying hard to rehabilitate South African president Mbeki through the book Fit to Govern: The Native Intelligence of Thabo Mbeki:


"My criticism, for the most part, is a political one. What Mbeki has never got, and what Roberts does not get, is that we never wanted a “rigorous student of language and stereotypes” for a president.

What we wanted was a leader who could reach out into the “vast deep” of despair and despondency and mobilise people towards action."
