So, Mbeki is out.....

This sculpture of Mbeki (all other political figures past and present are also similarly skewered) is in the town of Darling, north of Cape Town at Pieter Dirk Uys' political satire museum and restaurant....a must see for all who enjoy commentary on the antics of our politicians!

Where are Cyril Ramaphosa and Tokyo Sexwale when we need them?
Be sure to read commentary in Mail & Guardian, Financial Times of London, and All Africa. What this means for the financial security of the country is clearly a worry, but Trevor Manuel has made it clear that he is staying on, at least for the meantime. Commentary on from the Washington Post found on Silobreaker indicates that there is reason for concern: " A senior Zuma ally recently told the Financial Times that his camp, once in power, would seek "a complete review of the conservative strategies we've pursued -- all of them." Zuma, however, has tried to reassure investors that he is committed to growth and the private sector."
