Lord Robin Renwick, a former British diplomat, has launched his latest book, How To Steal A Country which details the allegations of state capture in which the Gupta Family along with Jacob Zuma allegedly stole an estimated R200-billion from the country.
He was the former ambassador to South Africa from 1987-1991.
Briefly.co.za learned that Renwick has been labelled as the stooge of “white monopoly capital” by supporters of former president Jacob Zuma and the Black First, Land First (BLF) movement, something which he denies vehemently according to iol.co.za.

The latest allegation levelled at him was that he had asked Julius Malema to return to the ANC. He says that he had met with Malema once, in which he advised the young leader of the EFF to stop talking in terms of race-based policies and violence.
"I have a completely different point of view from him but I would like to pay tribute to the role he has played against state capture,” says Renwick.
His book was fact-checked by Pravin Gordhan and his friend and fellow author Wilbur Smith said that the book reads like a crime thriller.
His book has been dedicated to the former public protector Thuli Madonsela, Gordhan, the South African press, the judiciary and civil society.
