to the masses, their lives are still way off better than before 1994...long as education is not improved, we will set with such mindsets.
Are they? That's the million dollar question! Judging by the average life span, poverty levels, spread of disease and poor education, more and more people ask just that. Of course, the ANC armada agrees with you. How long though until the uneducated masses begin to see the truth?

The areas that have improved is access to water, electricity, to a degree housing, and welfare grants. Counterbalancing that is a drop in life expectancy, worse medical care, and a drop in education standards. I am thinking the Zulu dominance of the ANC has to end sometime in the next 7 years. They currently call all the shots but honestly I suspect tribalism is going to grow. Mandela, a Xhosa, got himself a Xhosa successor he hand picked in Mbekhi and he was evicted by Zuma's faction. Zuma is now hand picking a Zulu successor and even is NDZ does make it in I suspect she will not survive two terms. While the Zulu faction is larger than any other tribe in SA there are a lot of the rest that are getting tired of the Zulu arrogance which is subtle but prevalent. For instance its often the case that if there are 4 Sotho guys in a room and a Zulu enters the room he will expect the rest to swithc to speaking Zulu. Cultural arrogance I guess you could call it. Thing is if the rest of the SA tribes unite against the Zulu they outnumber them by a very large margin.

Zuma won't leave till his term as State President is up in 2019.

If he does break his fully term, the loses the perks afforded to past presidents, like ongoing VIP protection, the best medical treatment for him and his family, a fat pension and the continued maintenance of his official residence. All of this is covered by your hard-earned taxes until he croaks.

The sad reality is it doesn't really matter if he's out tomorrow or in 2019, the damage is done.

More and more people are waking up to the facts. It's one thing when tax money is wasted. They didn't work for it and they can't really see or understand how that money could have been spent to make their lives and living conditions better. It's another when a dairy farm that would have made things better for a lot of people has its allocation reappropriated to a Gupta wedding.

Investments are done on a 2-3 year basis so yeah, it's pretty irrelevant what happens to Zuma now. The only question that keeps everyone in Limbo now is who his successor will be. If December comes and it's CR we're definitely going to see reinvestment into our economy.

I'm pretty certain it's going to be NDZ.
