In 2016 Vytjie Mentor sought to expose the biggest scandal that any South African government had ever been involved in. She went on to expose just how the South African government and the Jacob Zuma administration had been captured and controlled by one family.
How Zuma and his closest circle in his cabinet had enriched themselves, their families, their friends and their cronies. How they had syphoned billions of Rands out of the South African economy to invest offshore for their own gains.
Revelations by the author were initially ridiculed. She was scorned and called all sorts of names, but much later and very slowly, other people came to the forefront to attest and corroborate what she had continuously said and raised about grand-corruption in South Africa. The biggest scheme of self-enrichment by those in power has become exosed for all to see.
