Zuma 'Rape'
The report in the Sunday Times yesterday pinning a rape allegation on Zuma, with no -even circumstantial- evidence, and a "witness" that denies the whole thing anyway. This does seem suspiciously like a smear and, if true, will undoubtedly prove to be an ill-advised move, as it will only embolden Zuma supporters galvanised in the face of further evidence of a political conspiracy.
