Author says empty book 'Reasons to vote ANC' forces SA to fill in the blanks
Cartoonist Tim Mostert says his satirical book urges South Africans to think deeply about the state of political affairs in the country.
Mostert is the brains behind the blank-paged bestseller Reasons to vote ANC.
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.
