It's interesting how much insight the New York Times is giving to the story, using the strike as a 'mirror' of the political battle going on for the soul of the ANC. Very interesting as well, how Zuma and Sexwale have positioned themselves almost on opposing ends of the spectrum in their level of tacit support of the strike.
