Copies signed by Zuma fetching R1000 each
Similarly, Msholozi’s spokesperson Mzwanele Manyi has echoed comments that the newly released book is in high demand.
Manyi confirmed that a copy of the book, personally signed by the ex-president himself, is fetching R1000 a copy. Additionally, a normal copy was selling for just under R300 before stocks ran dry.
Furthermore, Manyi claims that the book is selling like ‘hot cakes’ and that the proceeds will go towards paying the embattled politician’s legal fees.
Meanwhile, Zuma-Sambudla hints that this book is the first of many during the virtual launch.
“I want to let SA know this is going to be the first of many books my dad is going to be writing, and involved in. The book that you are all waiting for will be coming soon,”
Book aims to set the record straight
Previously, the former president said the book aims to address just a few of the ‘untrue’ stories about him according to TimesLIVE.
“I feel very good that some South Africans who are patriots have felt it was not fair for those South Africans who think differently to tell the kind of stories that were not true,”
Additionally, Zuma highlighted the importance of South Africa knowing the truth about the man who once led the nation.
“The untruth about the work we have done demonstrated the truth is important for society to be well informed, to know what is happening. There is no use to create stories because you have powerful machinery to do so.”
