    It's the ANC is FFx100. The voters will deplore what's happening and still loyally vote for their tribal chiefs.

    It's also a bit like the Liberal Democratic Party in Japan, the people just can't seem to vote them out for long!

    Will "Gucci Grace" still have Immunity in the new set up and will the ouster of Mugabe embolden opposition to Zuma?

    Looks like Zumo's ex wife is going to be elected as new ANC leader tomorrow and thus will almost certainly be the next SA leader after Zumo steps down.

    She has the support of Zumo and and of the 'corruption' wing of the ANC with vote buying of delegates expected to tip the scales in her favour according to reports in the SA press. Country has become a real basket case.

    "South Africa's Jacob Zuma gave his last speech as African National Congress head today, as the only party in power since the end of apartheid prepared to pick its next leader, and likely future president, in a vote that was too close to call.

    The election is perhaps the most pivotal moment for the ANC in its 23 years of power. Scandal and corruption allegations have tainted Mr Zuma's presidency and the party that launched black majority rule under Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nelson Mandela is now deeply divided, its image tarnished at home and abroad.

    Mr Zuma, who is backing Ms Dlamini-Zuma in the race, can remain head of state until 2019.

    A trained lawyer and former union leader, Mr Ramaphosa, 65, has vowed to fight corruption and revitalise an economy that has slowed to a near-standstill under Mr Zuma with 28% unemployment and credit rating downgrades.

    That message has played well with foreign investors and Mr Ramaphosa is expected to be backed by ANC veterans, labour unions and civil society organisations.

    In contrast, Ms Dlamini-Zuma is seen as a fierce campaigner against racial inequality whose hostility to big business has rattled investors.

    "She has not made corruption the only pillar of her campaign, because the most critical issue in South Africa is this huge inequality," said Carl Niehaus, a key member of Ms Dlamini-Zuma's campaign."

    So old boss same as the new boss - very disappointing!

    Did foreign aid actually pay for Zuma's residence? I hope not.

    "The rand currency ZAR=D3 had risen to a nine-month high of 12.5200 earlier, in as the market priced in a Ramaphosa victory. Government bonds also closed firmer before announcement that Ramaphosa had won the race."

    Hopefully this will not be another false dawn!
