I don’t know who to vote for

Come 22 April 2009, we enter a new phase in South African politics. While it's not as ground breaking as the 1994 election (in which I was a few months too young to vote), it's the end of the honeymoon period of Nelson Mandela and his protégé, Thabo Mbeki. I'm talking about the newest four-letter word: Zuma.

I don’t envy Obama

Even if it was the angry old white man in the White House, I wouldn't envy anyone in that position right now. The US economy is in a recession, major corporations are closed or closing, and the world is not very amused with George W Bush.
