    Looks like Mbeki will be a lameduck president until 2009.

    Looks like the ANC will be led by a grade A ******.

    Oh dear, not good. They'll be a lot of very uneasy people in ZA over this.

    Oh **** I didn't know this. I'm actually getting scared now! I hope his case at the end of the year goes awry, surely you cant be a president in prison?

    I'm actually quite surprised that you guys care about South African politics.

    Ok, those are both viable excuses :p

    So do you think RSA will go to the dogs now or is the democratic system too smart to just let teh country die?

    Very hard to say, and it all depends on whether the ANC stays together or splits. I'll definitely be keeping my eye on the whole thing, especially as I have a nasty feeling there's going to be some turbulence either way.

    Actually this week Tutu was quoted as saying he supported neither candidates as both were unworthy of the job...

    The real fight lies ahead: the presidential election. Will Mbeki go quietly? I suspect/fear not...
