The Unlikely Mr Rogue | A Life with Ivan Pillay

By Evelyn Groenink

Written by Evelyn Groenink, The Unlikely Mr Rogue: A Life with Ivan Pillay is the story of the quiet man behind the so-called ‘rogue unit’ at SARS. The much acclaimed revenue service became a lightning rod for take-downs and shake-downs during the Jacob Zuma years. This book takes the reader on a journey from Ivan’s growing up in Merebank, KwaZulu-Natal, to his politicisation, the underground and exile, and the story of Operation Vula, which Ivan ran from Lusaka, reporting to Oliver Tambo.
