ANC are a bunch of heavies who've tasted power and like it. How easy exactly do you think it is to kick them out? Trade Unions? COSATU is in their pocket. SA Communist Party is a joke. And the DA, like it or not, deserved or not, are seen as the White Party - White's being the guys who did the apartheid thing. Or you can short-circuit the whole damn democratic exercise and lead a mob.

Zuma has deliberately weakened a lot of the machinery of state - abusing his presidential appointment powers to put his people in key government positions, replacing judges he doesn't like, firing people who are a threat. He's a snake.

At the same time he's a populist politician. Do I really have to spell it out to you? People give him ballot box victories 'cos he's damn good at deceiving a large part of the population a lot of the time. Why did Berlusconi consistently win in Italy? His boyish good looks? All the Italians knew he was as crooked as a spiral staircase too.
I see. It's tough. It looks like Julius Malema is increasingly filling in for the government in waiting. Scary stuff. Democracy is overrated in certain contexts.

Julius scares the crap out of me Sadcryface He's a young Hitler if ever I saw one.

On the other hand, South Africa is in a lot better position than most African states. There's a strong tradition of civil disobedience and (post-apartheid) free press. Zuma, as much as he would love to elect himself Dear Leader for life, can't possibly go that route. As much as he tries to suppress news of his shenanigans with stealing state funds and as much as he tries to rally mob support to avoid being brought to book, he hasn't been able to prevent the man on the street from finding out. In this particular context democracy - well, democracy is the reason we have him as a leader, but democracy, free press and all that inconvenient stuff is also the only thing preventing him from the kind of excesses he wishes he could enact.
