All eyes on Zuma
Naturally all news but the Zuma verdict pales into insignificance today. Whilst I haven't been following the trial as closely as I perhaps should have, I do get the distinct feeling from the little I have heard that there is probably enough doubt and 'noise' to infer that he will probably be acquitted. I would not like to see Zuma go forth as a presidential candidate, and thus I hope the trial, whatever the outcome, has stuck enough mud on him to allay those fears.
