An ironic and witty look at the political landscape of present-day South Africa; richly satirical and highly topical, this is compelling and brave fiction 'I predict, firstly, that a star will soon set in the political firmament. Secondly, that this country is going to pass through a dark phase in the coming years. And thirdly, that there will be a recovery when a Muslim becomes the president.' Soon after the African Front convincingly wins the second democratic election, the beloved president suddenly resigns, without prior warning. After a demotion, and a series of unpleasant and unlucky incidents, cabinet minister Dr Salman Khan's life is thrown into turmoil. He begins to accept as true the predictions of Mr Roma, the university educated 'prophet' whose final comment on a television panel discussion suggests an unexpected political future.
