Motlanthe for president!

Published by at 1:21 pm under Opinion,Top Stories

When the opposition to Thabo Mbeki’s presidency came to a head in 2008, I sided with the group which wanted him out. (Click on tag “Thabo Mbeki” in the right column for articles on Mbeki, or simply look at this.)

At the time I didn’t side for Zuma and Cosatu…I sided against Mbeki. Little did I know what a good replacement was waiting in the wings: Read this sober, convincing and authoritative speech, delivered by SA’s new (hopefully not only interim) president at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week.

…and then decide whether this is 200% or 500% better than Mbeki ever was…

Viva, Motlanthe, viva!
