Zuma's Revenge
Is the first sign that Zuma suspects he's going down in his graft case? Zuma's statements in court on Monday, followed by support from Cosatu and - rather randomly - the ID, call for investigations into Mbeki's role into the arms deal. If memory serves me correctly, has this not already been done? Zuma is falling, and is trying to pull the ANC down with him, starting with the central figure in his 'conspiracy' - President Thabo Mbeki. Bizarrely, this only encourages me, as it seems to indicate a desperation on Zuma's part, which I sincerely hope is well-founded.
