@ Sipho : Any student of politics and power knows that any thing is possible in politics. Therefore it wouldn’t surprise me if the current SA pres. gets a second term. What would surprise me would be the SA voters themselves. By the way, I have no (political) power ambitions (at the moment!); and although I am not a card-carrying member, I actually am pro-ANC to the bone. For the party to regain the respect and goodwill of SA people it is in dire need of renewal of the humane values and style of its front figures. The power relations paradigm changed in 1994; leaders cannot continue with the same style of doing things as they did in exile. Now they cannot escape responsibility and answerability to the people.
