About the book:
Mmusi Maimane has become a key figure in South African politics since being elected leader of the Democratic Alliance at the age of thirty-five. But who is Mmusi Maimane and what makes him tick? In this book, Maimane speaks openly about his background and his political career, his views about the current state of South Africa, and his hopes for the country’s future.
He describes his youth in Dobsonville, Soweto; his education and early political activities; and his rise through the ranks of the DA. He talks frankly about his multiracial family and his religious convictions. He provides an insider’s account of conflicts in Parliament, coalition negotiations after the 2016 local government elections, and his deportation from Zambia in 2017. And he gives his views on race and reconciliation, corruption and state capture, the economy, education, foreign policy and the future of South African politics.
Believe in Tomorrow provides a compelling glimpse into the personal life and political beliefs of one of the country’s most important politicians.
