Africa has enough problems and now South Africa has emerged as its frontrunner of troubles.  Two men, the President of South Africa, Thabo Mbeki, and the President of the African National Congress (ANC) have been in a bitter power struggle over the country’s government.  They’ve made the country witness a very bad foreign folk rendition of “The Country Is Mine.”  The two have been embroiled in a “You go to jail! No, you go to jail!” type of back and forth for some time.  But after Mbeki fought so hard for the presidency, it seems a little strange that he’s decided to step down without a fight at all.  Some believe that Mbeki used his “pull” or position to put pressure on the prosecution over Zuma’s racketeering and fraud case.  The President is appalled at the mere idea that he would do such a thing.  Read about the saga here and decide for yourself.
