Mike Hampton is adamant that his book series describing political corruption in SA is something unique. The author claims that this is the first time the alleged crimes of the Democratic Alliance would be addressed in a book.

The first installment of the series, The Corruption & The Intimidation is due for release on April Fools' Day, a deliberate move on Hampton's part to illustrate the 'cruel joke that selfish politics has become'.

The second installment, The Devil, The Deaf & The Dead, is set for release in June.

On his website, Hampton alleges that he is putting everything on the line in the name of justice:

“Bad people are trying to destroy me. They’ll probably succeed. But I’m hitting back as hard as I can. By publishing these books, I’m breaking several court orders issued by questionable magistrates benefiting the interests of a political party. Warrants of arrest will be issued. But I can’t be silent. I must warn you."

The author claims that he hopes the truth will be exposed with the series and that justice can be served:

"And I’m hoping that the truth and the publicity you readers give me attracts the attention of President Cyril Ramaphosa, makes Parliament finish the job they started, provides me protection, saves the town of Knysna, and helps challenge the corruption that’s destroying South Africa."

On his Facebook page, the author claims that the Democratic Alliance has thus far silenced the truth he supossedly has to portray:

"I'm an activist and citizen journalist who refuses to belong to any party. I've exposed corruption revealing the true, dark nature of the Democratic Alliance (DA) and its leadership. For that, they seek to destroy me."

Is there any truth to this man's claims? It appears we will have to wait until April to find out.
