Judge Chris Nicholson at the magistrate court in Pietermaritzburg have today ruled that the prosecution on fraud and corruption of the ANC president Jacob Zuma is invalid. This will hopefully be the end of a eight years long soap opera, and now focus can be set on the future. South Africa needs stability so it can bring wealth and prosperity to its people. However, I fear that there will be a long wait for these riches if Zuma continues to surround himself with his fanatical and very unsympathetic supporters.
As I mentioned a couple of days ago on this blog (see Zuma and his supporters rape Lady Justice) the problem has probably never lied with Zuma himself but rather with the people around him. People that now probably want us to respect today's court ruling, but would have used all means available if the verdict didn't go their way. Having a ruling elite with such a short temper and such a low compassion for fellow humans is not ideal in a young democracy. Lets therefore hope that Zuma has the courage to clean out in his troop and get rid of the molesters of freedom and peace.
Update: South African president, Thabo Mbeki, seems to be maneuvered out by the ANC in order for Zuma to assume office. It would be something of an achievement if Zuma managed to do a worse job than Mbeki in ruling the country. However, it is important to stress once again that Zuma needs to sort things out among his maladapted scores of supporters.
