So, how will the ANC cope with the latest blow to the battered economy? Presenter: Jane Dutton.

In his latest book‚ A manifesto for Social Change, author and political economist Moeletsi Mbeki argues South Africa is ruled by the political and economic elite, who were not only in conflict but also suspicious of each other.
