Did Mandela work for nothing?’
‘Mr Sushi comes to town’
‘Give me a corrupt black any day’
These are just some of Eric Miyeni’s newspaper columns and opinion pieces, which have earned him friends and enemies alike. Known for his straight-talking frankness, his views on subjects ranging from politics and travel to big business and sport elicit strong responses.
Here Comes the Snake in the Grass is a selection of Eric Miyeni’s columns and occasional writings covering a variety of topics, from Julius Malema, Oprah Winfrey and Brenda Fassie to the value of radio, the true cost of crime, the need for excellence in South Africa and the difficulty of finding love in the modern world. Some of the writings in this collection court controversy, addressing issues many want hidden from view; others provide glimpses of the writer’s softer side. 

All show why Eric Miyeni’s is an unmistakeable voice in the South African media. Alternately hard-hitting and personal, rousing and funny, Here Comes the Snake in the Grass is an entertaining and informative look at the South African cultural landscape.
