Politics in South Africa is alive and vibrantly so, although the media often fail to reflect this. This book’s main aim is to bring that political world to life. It presents a vivid, up-to-date picture of how power works in the new South Africa and who really makes the decisions around here.

It is people who make politics, and this is a book about personalities as well as the institutions they belong to. Discussing topics such as the presidency, the cabinet and the directors-general, the opposition parties, the parliamentary committees and the ANC alliance partners, Calland takes the reader along the corridors of power, mixing vivid anecdote with solid research.

The result is an accessible yet authoritative account of who runs South Africa, and how, today. The title is borrowed from Anthony Sampson’s seminal work about who ran Britain, Anatomy of Britain, which was first published in the early 1960s. Like Sampson before him, Richard Calland has a fly-on-the-wall, insider’s approach to the people who control the power that affects us all.

• Who are the most influential men and women in South Africa today?
• What actually goes on at high-levelgovernment meetings?
• Who does the president really listen to?
• How influential are spin doctors and the media?
• Just how political are the judges?
• Is big business still running the show?
• Is the ANC in control of government, or is the government in control of the ANC?
• How has the Zuma affair affected the tripartite alliance?
• Who are the front-runners in the race to be the next president of South Africa?

Answering these questions, and many others, Anatomy of South Africa dissects the body politic and exposes it as you’ve never seen it before.

About the Author:

Richard Calland is one of the country’s most incisive and independent political analysts, having led Idasa’s governance-monitoring and transparency campaigns for over a decade. He is also executive director of the Open Democracy Advice Centre, which he founded in 2000, the year in which the Financial Mail described him as the best-known lobbyist in parliament.

A regular commentator in the press and on TV and radio, his column, ‘Contretemps’, in the Mail & Guardian is highly regarded for its original take on politics, based on an extensive range of contacts built up carefully over the years – a reservoir of inside knowledge from which he draws extensively in Anatomy of South Africa. Earlier publications include Thabo Mbeki’s World: The Politics and Ideology of the South African President, which was hailed by the Sowetan as a tour de force.

Media Reviews:

Financial Mail (Richard Steyn)
„A fair-minded and illuminating study.“

Saturday Dispatch (Barbara Manning)
„It is even more highly deserving of its Publishers’ Choice status. Don’t be fooled by the outwardly dry political subject matter - this makes for fascinating reading and once started, I couldn’t put it down. Highly recommended.“

The title of this book is either stolen or borrowed, depending on your viewpoint, from Anthony Sampson’s seminal book on who ran Britain, Anatomy of Britain. First published in the early 1960s, it was revitalized in May 2004 as Who Runs this Place? The Anatomy of Britain in the 21st Century. Given that Sampson was Nelson Mandela’s biographer and had deep links with this country, perhaps he would not have minded. Sadly, Sampson died in December 2004.

In Anatomy of South Africa, I try to present a vivid, up-to-date picture of who runs South Africa in the second decade of democracy - much like Sampson did with Britain. With the first twelve years of democracy safely under its belt, it is a good moment to reflect on how democracy has changed the face of power and power relations. Or has it? One of the core themes of the book is to examine whether democracy has, in fact, made such a profound difference. In each chapter I try to trace not only the changing power, but also the changing people.

People make politics; institutions are made by the people who inhabit them, something we are all prone to forget. So, this is a book about people, and I have not hesitated to depict individuals as I see them, set against the organizations they work within, and with all the wonderful contradictions that human nature conjures up.

This is an extraordinary country that has beguiled and bewitched me since I first set foot in it. The colours of the Rainbow Nation remain vivid and the stories are many. Despite the media’s failure to capture the vibrant essence and energy of politics in South Africa, it is alive, and luminously so. My main aim with this book, therefore, is to bring that political world to life through a set of mini-narratives. I make no apology for my fly-on-the-wall approach.

Like Sampson before me, ‘I offer myself as an informal guide to a living museum, describing the rooms and the exhibits as I found them, giving basic hard facts and frequent quotations from others, but not hesitating to add my own comments.’

In this, I do want to make one thing very clear: while there are short-comings to the book, which I willingly concede below, it should not be judged as a history book. Its point is not to provide an academically accurate account of what happened; it does not seek to provide a comprehensive analysis of any one or other important event or set of events. Rather, it dips in and out of the trail of events that together comprise the political story of a society in order to serve the primary purpose - namely, to elucidate the way in which power operates in the new South Africa.

Moreover, because it seeks to provide a contemporaneous ‘X-ray’ of power relations at the point at which I signed off on the edited manuscript (July 2006), it is also a hostage to fortune: new events may intercede and change things, perhaps dramatically - not least in relation to Jacob Zuma - and/or people may leave their jobs and move on to new ones.

Even the biggest events, however, are unlikely to seriously undermine the rationale of the book - more than anything, if it is successful, it will be because it provides readers with the tools to assess the nature of political power in South Africa for themselves in the future. In this sense, it is less of a map and more of a compass.

Like Sampson, I too have concentrated on the basic anatomy of power: the brain, the bones and the bloodstream. There are, therefore, omissions. Others can correct them; I would welcome that. This is just one X-ray. Different equipment focused from different angles may provide a different physiology. In particular, I have not tried to capture every part of the politi-cal system. While I focus on the national executive, there is little discussion of the other two spheres of government - provincial and local - except in passing. A future volume would need to remedy this by covering both properly.

Further, the so-called quangos - the quasi-autonomous non-governmental organs of state, such as the Human Rights Commission or the Financial and Fiscal Commission - deserve a full chapter, but are allotted none. Instead, the Introduction provides an overview of the governance system and the main institutions that it comprises.

It sketches rather than analyses a range of institutions whose influence - except perhaps in the case of the National Economic Development and Labour Council (NEDLAC) - does not quite match their constitutional importance. In a future volume or edition, the armed services, the parastatals and the Reserve Bank would all merit proper attention, as would the National Intelligence Agency - and I regret not including a chapter on the NIA, because the spooks continue to interfere with the ‘normal’ operation of power in South Africa, exerting significant influence.

Nor does this book attempt to go much beyond public power, unlike Sampson’s works. Although my Conclusion focuses on the compelling and, as I term it, congealing embrace between public and private power, time constraints have prevented me from giving the corporate world the separate chapter it requires. Other segments of society that are both interesting and important are omitted in this volume: the Churches (except for a brief reference in the chapter on civil society), culture and sport, which plays such a prominent part in South Africa’s psyche, the professions and the universities. Like the quangos, they must wait until next time.

Last in this litany of concessions, I must note that there are constraints that arise from my own background and class. For example, I speak only one language: English. So, in Chapter 8, when I discuss the most influential radio interviewers, I am speaking mainly of my own experiences and making my own assessment. Because I don’t speak isiZulu or isiXhosa, for example, I have not been able to assess interviewers on radio stations that specialize in those languages.

That is one of the problems of such a socially diverse nation, a challenge that Sampson was largely spared with his subject, Britain. I also wanted to make this book a distinctly personal account. Because I have been working in and around politics in South Africa for over ten years, I felt justified in bringing my own experiences and opinions to bear. I hope this approach also helps to personalize and humanize the narrative. At times there is an element of autobiography. I suppose there were certain experiences I wanted to get off my chest; I hope this is neither too self-indulgent nor too intrusive to the reader.

In my determination to bring South African politics vividly to life, I have sought to emphasize its personal, human side, probably at the expense of hard, dry, empirical analysis. Hence, I have limited citations and academic references to a bare minimum so as not to clutter the narrative; in a couple of places I have drawn from my own columns in the Mail & Guardian. A future edition, should there be one, will need to redress this imbalance.

I hope critics will take account of my central purpose when they assess the book’s merit: to provide an accessible keyhole into the working life of politics and the politicians - in the broad meaning of the term - who operate the wheels of power. Personalizing politics is a fairly precarious exercise, and so there are certain risks involved in my approach, especially those places where I have taken a little dramatic licence - again, the purpose is to bring things to life and not to paint an inaccurate picture of some-one or something. In any case, a mark of a strong democracy is its capacity to accept parody and to construct satire.

South Africa does tend to take itself a little too seriously - especially those with power and in power. Hence, if there is more than a touch of irreverence in my observations, I make no apology, but nor do I mean to offend. The ‘fantasy left cabinet’, presented at the end of Chapter 6, is offered in this, more playful, spirit. I greatly respect this country of which I am now a citizen, as well as its people, including - and often especially - those working in the public domain.

One of the more obvious conclusions that I reach is that the African National Congress (ANC) is the key political entity in the country. I was a member of the ANC for a while and worked for the party’s campaign in the Western Cape when I first came to South Africa in early 1994. But I resigned when I joined the Institute for Democracy in South Africa (Idasa) in March 1995, as my role there was to build a specialist parliamentary monitoring capability, and it was therefore essential that I be seen to be impartial, which I have earnestly sought to be.

Therefore, when it comes to the ANC, while I have many good friends in the organization, I am essentially an outsider looking in, with all the attendant advantages and disadvantages of such independence. Those who are ‘on the inside’ will obviously have a much clearer view of how the organization works, but if further light is shed upon this critical organization in response to my account, then so much the better. I realize that, inevitably, some mistakes will be made, and I will be grateful for any corrections from readers that can be incorporated into a later edition.

It is notable that not a single ‘insider’ account of democratic government has emerged since 1994. Unlike Britain, say, where former cabinet ministers and advisors rush to publish as soon as they leave Westminster or Whitehall, there has been no such clamour for self-publicity here. That may be a mark of the greater dignity of politics in South Africa; regrettably, British politics is so media-driven that the urge to expose tends to eclipse the no less important need to respect the confidentiality of government.

I say this not in defence of illegitimate secrecy - on the contrary, I am a strong advocate for government transparency - but because the consequences of such published ‘revelations’ tend to reduce trust within government and, at times, to drive it ‘underground’ for fear that open communication within government will be revealed to the public.

What I am looking for in South Africa is the publication of a sort of grand historical work, such as the British Labour politician Dick Crossman’s famous diaries, or Tony Benn’s three-volume autobiographical studies of life in politics and government in the 1970s and i98os. I would have hoped and expected a Pallo Jordan or Kader Asmal to have contemplated and delivered such a work by now (perhaps they soon will).

The consequence is that very little is really known about how politics, and government in particular, works in practice. Without such accounts, it is hard for ordinary citizens to understand what is going on. The absence of knowledge in the end represents a shortcoming in the democracy as a whole; in darkness, rumours prosper, and sinister and often unflattering accounts of power predominate. This book is an attempt to shed some light and to help allay such perceptions.

Like Sampson’s last version of Anatomy (his 2004 volume), this book is written ‘with urgency’. I share the angst of British human rights lawyer Helena Kennedy when she writes in the Preface to her book, Just Law: ‘Whenever I was studying for exams I used to find myself saying, "Dammit, if only I had more time." I feel that about this book.’

My book is about people with power at a time when power is definitely changing hands as a part of South Africa’s ongoing transformation as a society. It does not deal with people who do not have formal political power - the so-called ‘ordinary people’. Indeed, the principal question for us all is this: Having won the vote in 1994, do the people have power and do they govern?

Regrettably, despite the dramatic change of 1994, the great majority of South Africans remain marginalized from real power and excluded from full participation in society due to chronic unemployment and poverty. Thus, I say, all the more reason to understand better who does control the power that washes over and around them.

I want to thank and acknowledge a number of people: first of all, my brilliant wife Gaye Davis, and my two charming, witty children, Jack and India Jane, whose company I enjoy as much as I love them. I wrote the first draft of this book in 2004 while continuing to honour all my other work commitments; I was only able to summon the necessary time and focus to complete the final draft by taking a sabbatical in Cambridge in late 2005 and early 2006 (accordingly, I would also like to thank Jean September of the British Council: Southern Africa for helping to make the sabbatical possible, as well as the Lauterpacht Research Centre for International Law and Robinson College, Cambridge University, and John and Saskia Barker of each Cambridge institution, respectively).

Even though it thus meant sacrificing precious time with my family, they were understanding and very supportive. When I first met her, Gaye was a leading political journalist, and one of the best; despite her sojourn into ‘talk radio’, there is still no one I know with a better instinctive feel for politics in this country. She provided the initial guidance through the minefield of South African politics, and I would not have made it through without her.

Second, I wish to acknowledge all the people who lent me their valuable time so that I could pick their brains about the issues I cover in the book. All of them are busy and important people, including several past and present members of the cabinet. Almost all spoke to me on a background basis for ease of discussion, applying ‘Chatham House’ rules, which meant that I had to go back to them to secure their agreement to use the quotes that I attribute to individuals. Except where I have provided a specific reference, the source of the comments attributed to any individual is my interview with them.

Towards the end of the book I express my optimistic assessment that those in power are becoming more open in their attitudes and more comfortable with their power, as greater security in tenure is found. That is a very good development, if it is true (although it was an outlook that was being shaken by the waves of division and paranoia that washed around the succession battle as this book went to print). People in politics tend to be very cautious and somewhat nervous about what they say publicly.

Though it is easy for me to say, I think perhaps they are too cautious and fearful. Skins are thicker than they may think; the debate can afford to be more robust. I hope I am right about this, and that no one suffers any sort of reprisal as a result of this book. If there were real justification for tearfulness, then that would be a very bad sign indeed.

Third, I must thank Zebra Press for wanting to publish a book about politics, and specifically Steve Connolly, Marlene Fryer, Robert Plummer and the book’s excellent editor, Ronel Richter-Herbert (and, in passing, thanks too to my old mate Dan Ford, now founder of the Two Dogs publishing label for facilitating at Steve’s behest my first meeting with him in my favourite local, the Fireman’s Arms, in January 2003).

Showing considerable vision, they have seen that there is a market for accessible books about public life. The fact that so few people buy books in this country is an outrage. For me, it is not the illiteracy statistics that are so alarming - horrifyingly high though they are - it is the literacy figures: if 4000 represents a ‘good’ sales figure for a book, then there is something seriously wrong.

The ‘affluent masses’ - a wonderful phrase I heard on the radio recently - don’t buy books. They don’t read! I suspect that this poverty of the mind is as much a danger to democracy in South Africa as the abject material deprivation that afflicts around a third of the population.

Fourth, certain friends and colleagues deserve specific mention. Researcher Jonathan Faull and his manager at Idasa’s Political Information and Monitoring Service (PIMS), Judith February, kindly agreed to tailor certain research conducted by Jonathan on parliament, and the cabinet in particular, in such a way that it was directly useful for this book. Jonathan, one of the country’s most astute young analysts, provided valuable, incisive commentary on the first draft.

My dear colleague Judith was also very helpful in reviewing the chapter on the judges. Also, another excellent PIMS researcher, Ralph Mathekga, enthusiastically and skilfully filled the gaps that needed filling as the final deadlines loomed. My researcher, Catherine Musuva. also helped with final research queries, along with Andrew Schalkwyk, as did Bianca Valentine, Joe Fine and Helen Watkinson with much earlier ones. My thanks also to Professor Harry Boyte and my British friends, Dr Fernanda Pirie of Oxford University, and Jonathan Oates.

My superb personal assistant, Use Toerien, carefully stored chapter drafts in her sub-file marked ‘Richard the Author’, organised appointments and the checking of quotes by interviewees - and persuasively reassured them that their refinements would be heeded - and generally held the world at bay. I would not cope without her.

My sincere thanks and acknowledgements therefore go to my principal employers, Idasa, and my current boss, our executive director Paul Graham, whose wisdom and skill as a leader are evidenced at least partly by giving me a sufficiently long leash to enable me to pursue projects such as this one! His and Idasa’s trust in me is something I am profoundly grateful for. Coming to work for Idasa in 1995 changed my life completely and has provided me with the greatest opportunity that anyone could wish for. For all that its detractors may have to say, Idasa is an extraordinary organization doing extraordinarily varied work across the continent of Africa, with many extraordinary staff members - it is a privilege to work with them.

I would also like to thank my great friends Lawson Naidoo, Sahra Ryklief and Ebrahim Fakir, as well as Sean Jacobs, not just for reading and comment- ing on either the whole draft manuscript or certain chapters, but for the significant guidance they have provided in relation to the pitfalls of South African politics over the years. And thank you to Ronald Segal for his words of wisdom and encouragement over the years, especially when I first decided to come to South Africa.

Six of my most significant interviewees also kindly gave me even more of their valuable time and read and commented on certain chapters. They know who they are, but it is probably best that they remain nameless lest they are unfairly associated with the shortcomings of the book, which are entirely my own responsibility.

Finally, while I remain an outsider here, I have very rarely been made to feel like one. People are incredibly warm and generally very kind. In fact, I feel far more at home here than in Britain; in an uncomplicated way, I feel far freer. Before I came to South Africa in early 1994, I was a barrister in London, with a growing yet strangely unsatisfying practice in human rights law, and an even more frustrating experience as an active member of the Labour Party. The intellectual corruption of the British legal system, a microcosm of the suffocating constraints of the deep-rooted class ruts of wider society, was beginning to suck me in. The shades of grey were oppressive. Though it is painful to miss my parents and oldest friends, I have never once regretted moving to South Africa. I have learnt so much, and my life is far richer.

Hence, this book is dedicated simply, and with humility, to the people of South Africa. I can never repay my debt to them and to this country, but if this book makes even the slightest contribution to a collective understanding of democratic politics and to enhancing people’s participation in public life as active citizens, then I would be very glad indeed.
