Pluck leaf from SA’s election book

I AM not an ardent fan of South African President Thabo Mbeki but I was very impressed with his election campaign.


He discarded his usual staid demeanour and beca

me a man of the people. His door-to-door campaign had a great impact and I feel that his and the ANC’s victory were well earned. Seeing that President Mbeki is very concerned about the Zimbabwe issue and wants to see an amicable resolution to it, I suggest that he seconds Brigalia Bam’s Independent Electoral Commission to run our elections next year. That way we will be assured of some semblance of sanity and hopefully fairness in the whole process. We will also be freed from Sobuza Gula-Ndebele’s sham of election supervision!
