It really amazed me seeing esp. the UK South Africans coming out in their thousands to vote! What an amazing sense of camaraderie it must have been!

Am I the only one who is concerned about the fact that Zuma is running for a third term (against the constitution I might add).

The President, elected by the National Assembly from among its members, is the executive Head of State and leads the Cabinet. The President may not serve more than two five-year terms in office.

If Zuma wins it will change the democracy into a dictatorship.

Zuma has only served one term so far. It just seems so long, because he's done so much damage in that 5 years.

Could of sworn it was 2 and you're right it does feel longer because of all the damage he's done. Oh well I guess I was wrong on that one.

Still a dictatorship if you ask me.

I think it may have been cleverly disguised when Thabo Mbeki stood down and that other idiot took over. Zuma only became president in the next elections which was 2009.

I quite liked Mbeki. His track record was pretty good in comparison to Zuma's.

The only reason his track record was better was because he was a marionette, just hung around and danced to the tunes of his comrades.
