It is interesting to observe the fiasco currently playing out around now ex-South African President Jacob Zuma. In February, Zuma resigned from office at the behest of the African National Congress’s (ANC) National Executive Committee. The leader did not want to leave, and it took numerous discussions and concessions to get him to resign and make way for Cyril Ramaphosa to step in. And when he did eventually concede, he maintained that he had done nothing wrong. Unfortunately, the lack of a clearer stance and stronger sanctions of his behaviour then is now starting to haunt the ANC.
