He says the book was published with the intention to stir and start conversations among citizens.

Mostert 'wrote' the book under the pseudonym 'Thami Thami' and says the paperback is a living punchline.

The cartoonist says ANC's corrupt leadership has pillaged the country and completely blown the fresh start South Africa had in 1994.

The book is open to interpretation.

They want to keep leadership on that can keep stealing. We need to sweep out the rot.
