Summary

"Until Julius Comes" is a boisterous, unprecedented journey through the wilds of South African politics in an election year. With his sharp wit and perceptive observations, Richard Poplak exposes the tricks of the political trade and the skulduggery that comes with it. Writing under the byline Hannibal Elector, he spares no one: Julius Malema looks like a 'Teletubbie in his EFF onesie'; Jacob Zuma is a tasteless home renovator with 'no access to a Woolworths lifestyle magazine' and Helen Zille sends out 'Braveheart vibes' as she guides her troops into battle. In vignettes that switch between the hilarious, the tragic and the terrifying, Poplak rips back the curtain and exposes the country for what it is: a bustling, contested and divided circus trying to find its way to wholeness.
