Can't be a bad thing for the republic across the Indian. Amazing how these not so enlightened despots hang on so tenaciously to power.

FFS! Private jet. Some extradition safe tax haven. Goodbye. Some of these bastards can't help themselves. They spend years accruing large amounts of untraceable assets then stick around to see it to the bitter end. I mean if I was going to rape my own country I'd get the fark out once people started asking too many questions.

Taips, in 2009 a journalist hated and respected in equal measure wote that Zuma would be the next SA President - and what he thought the ramifications for the country would be, politically, socially and economically.

HERE is the link

As someone who has witnessed the changes in the country first hand - how much of it has turned out to be reasonably accurate ?

Zuma is indubitably totally corrupt. His only hope was that his ex wife won the ANC presidency and gave him amnesty. He is now trying to a deal with Ramaphosa who is a canny operator. The 794 corruption charges are still hanging over Zuma's head as the case has been reopened.

The ANC know that Zuma is a liability and has to go. This is all about damage control and Zuma's rats are openly jumping ship.

Regarding the article. I don't think anyone expected the degree of corruption that happened. Fortunately the courts remained independent and the whole mess is rapidly unraveling. Zille's party has made massive inroads and run most of the big cities, but she is toast as a result of ill considered comments about colonialism. There is a general election next year and the ANC is running scared. Malema the great Zuma supporter has formed his own party which hates Zuma. The electric situation is mostly resolved, except that the supplier is nearly bankrupt as a result of Gupta corruption.

Things aren't great, but there is a glimmer of hope breaking through

We had another scorcher today so many households lost power. Privatisation has not been kind to our power supplies.

Think he is a wealthy capo pig. So seriously corrupt. Will look after the upper class, upper mid class, chiefy types and the good schools. Workers and the poor will continue to cop it in the neck.

Ramaphosa was a trade union leader. So much for the informed analysis above.

You thought that being a trade union leader at the height of grand Apartheid, was the same as a being a trade union leader in the nanny state of Australia?

Erm no.

Many good union officials were beaten and gaoled in Oz. Not to the same degree as I expect happened in SA. So you hold hopes for the new Prez?

I have hopes, but he is ANC through and through so there will be some constraints . However, since his union days he has become independently wealthy and hopefully does not see the need to loot the treasury. He is running on an anti corruption ticket but also understands the need to generate capital to raise living standards.
