Brutus and Shakes are two political fixers who call the shots and pull all the strings at the ANC s Braamfontein headquarters. Under the guise of offering mentorship to prospective government employees, their gambit involves grooming likely candidates to run for a top position, and then, when the time is right, selling their fall from grace to their competitors for a price.
