Mcebisi Jonas gives glimpse into his book 'After Dawn: Hope after state capture'

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