'Motlanthe named as president'

The deputy leader of South Africa's ruling ANC, Kgalema Motlanthe, will be appointed as the country's president after the resignation of Thabo Mbeki, party sources said on Monday.

Motlanthe, who already sits in the Cabinet, was named to take over from Mbeki until elections due around April next year during a meeting of the ANC's parliamentary caucus, ANC members of parliament told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

What makes him suitable other than, being black, looking dumb and having a name you cannot pronounce.
We´re in big shit!

Is he a Zulu like his comrade Zoooma?

He is Tswana. Go figure. I would have thought either a Zulu or Xhosa would have been picked.

Is there any possibility that he will seek reelection and get the support of the Mbeki faction of the ANC to do it? Maybe rally the Xhoxa and Tswana´s against the communists supporters of Zuma?

Splitting of ANC would be the best thing to happen to SA, next to a DA victory.

Best wishes,
