Some people said he was a traitor of the Afrikaner politics. Others regarded him as a courageous senior politician who was willing to relinquish the National Party (NP), to embrace and help build the New South Africa.
In this book, Jannie Momberg takes the reader on a fascinating journey, filled with humorous anecdotes in his famous tell-it-like-it-is style. It tells of his early days as member of the NP when he was influenced by Afrikaner leaders like DF Malan, John Vorster and PW Botha and of his breakaway to the Independent Party and the subsequent forming of the Democratic Party in the late 1980’s when he fulfilled his life-long ambition to become a Member of Parliament.
Jannie was not only a senior politician, he was also a legendary sport administrator and manager of the world famous barefoot athlete Zola Budd.
Soon after he wrote the last chapter for this book, Jannie Momberg passed away on 7 January 2011.
