US President Praises South Africa for Dismantling its Nuclear Weapons Program: But has it really been done?
As reported by News24.com on 12 April 2010, President Barack Obama commended South Africa on the 11th for voluntarily dismantling its nuclear weapons program when he convened with South African President Jacob Zuma on the eve of a key summit on nuclear terrorism in Washington. But how do we know that the South African nuclear weapons have really been dismantled? This is the question that South African Author Ian Kruger poses in his thriller novel Strike of the Black Mamba.
As I’ve mentioned in an earlier post the paperback version of my thriller novel “Strike of the Black Mamba” (ISBN: 9781920265137) is now available at most online book retailers. Here are some of the sites where you can find the book:
My thriller novel “Strike of the Black Mamba” has now been published by CruGuru as an e-book in both PDF and Microsoft Reader formats. The ISBN for the PDF version is 9781920265342 and for the Microsoft Reader version is 9781920265359.
The TV interview with SABC News International was quite an interesting experience. It was a quick affair, about five minutes in total, sandwiched between news items.
They did not brief me beforehand about the questions I could expect, but it was more or less the standard book interview – although I was asked to give my views on nuclear terrorism. I did a lot of research for the book, so it did not catch me off-guard.
I’ve been invited for a TV interview about my thriller novel “Strike of the Black Mamba” tomorrow morning (18 May 2008) between 07:30 and 09:00 South African time (about GMT + 2 hours) on SABC International. It is on The Weekender Show’s book slot. The station transmits to the U.S, most of the African continent, parts of Europe and Asia.
