How to marry a Politician and survive
AUTHOR: Nia Magoulianiti-McGregor

How to Marry a Politician and Survive is a tongue in cheek look at South African politicians, a celebration of quirky moments, a guide for those who want a wedding with hand-made menus that cost millions, a lifestyle of Johnny Walker blue (not red), and a glimpse at the shenanigans and creative machinations of SA politicians.

In this fun filled book Nia gives readers advice on how to: Check out his psychological profile - whether he is a Number One, a Trade Union Leader or the Opposition Oke – use this to your advantage: discover why a Working Class hero self-sabotages by scoring “own goals’ and laugh in the face of the Juju Curse. Learn how to ward off nyatsis (even the likes of shameless Danish PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt). And Flirt coach Catriona Boffard gives step-by-step instructions to hunt your “prey”. Advice is at hand about surviving in a polygamous marriage and becoming the “wife to retire on”. Plus readers will get tips on how to satisfy all his appetites - with recipes from acclaimed chef Dorah Sitole, sport talk from Lucas Radebe and tantalizing snippets from Sexual Health Practitioner Elna McIntosh. Wedding planner supremo Sophie Ndaba walks you through your fairy-tale-fabulous wedding.

How to Marry a Politician and Survive also pays tribute to the innate determination and resourcefulness of South African women, who want what they want. And if you’re a politician, watch out, we want YOU.

AUTHOR: Justice Malala

Let them eat cake is a selection of Malala’s long-running columns , Food for Thought that were published in the  Financial Mail .

Zulu Boy Gone Crazy; Hilarious Tales Post Polokwane
AUTHOR: Fred Khumalo

With tongue in cheek, a mischievous glint in his eye and palpable impish countenance, Khumalo studiously sets about challenging us to interrogate our nature as a species. That is after all, the core function of the columnist- to dissect societal existential truths and drag the citizens kicking and screaming closer to facing their demons. These columns that first appeared in The Sunday Times are dripping with a self-effacing, disarming glibness that successfully masks the underlying steeliness of Fred’s probing writing. More than anything else Fred Khumalo has the enviable gift of being entertaining as he goes about disseminating these truths.

Fred’s columns are always dripping with a self-effacing, disarming glibness that successfully masks the underlying steeliness of his probing writing. More than anything else, true to his ‘somewhat serious, somewhat fun’ style. Fred Khumalo has the enviable gift of being entertaining as he goes about disseminating these truths.

Author information:
Fred Khumalo is an award-winning columnist. Fred has published the following books: Touch My Blood, the hilarious novel Bitches’ Brew, co-winner of the European Union Literary Award in 2005 and its sequel Seven Steps to Heaven and is a co-author of The lighter side of Robben Island (2012). As well as Zuptas must fall and other rants (2016).

“What is most refreshing is that Khumalo harbours no agenda in naming and shaming errant politicians, communities, corporations or social leaders. He ridicules himself and his own community as often as any other target,” Gwen Podbury
