'After Dawn: Hope after state capture'
The former deputy finance minister says the book includes his take on the country's economic and political state.

Former deputy finance minister Jonas Mcebisi has launched his book 'After Dawn: Hope after state capture' this week in Hyde Park Johannesburg.

The book covers events leading up to state capture as well as South Africa's economic and political landscape.

Jonas was one of the first politicians to blow the whistle on state capture, claiming the Gupta brothers offered him R600m to take the position of finance minister.

Refilwe Moloto unpacks the different themes in the book with Jonas.

The central thrust of the book is that the 1994 consensus has reached its sell-by date. In fact, it is unravelling.

I think we need to take a different approach about the correlation or the relationship between the state and markets. We need to take a more pragmatic view.

Mcebisi Jonas, Former deputy finance minister

Jonas says he supports the dismantling of Eskom.

I support the view of breaking Eskom into the three units that the government is talking about.

Mcebisi Jonas, Former deputy finance minister

I also support the programme that seeks to restructure the debt profile.
