I caught a glimpse of a true president yesterday – someone who stood up and said enough is enough to corruption in his government. Sure Thabo Mbeki had plenty of opportunity to hide behind the principle of “innocent until proven guilty”, but apparently there is sufficient evidence to implicate Jacob Zuma from Shabir Shaik’s verdict alone.

The result: Thabo Mbeki fired Jacob Zuma’s ass.

Well done Thabo! That took grit and courage – it took a true leader to defy the many Jacob Zuma supporters within your own political party and ultimately show them who is the boss.
