Whither the African National Congress
"Our government is worse than the apartheid government. One day we will start praying for the defeat of the ANC."Archbishop Desmond Tutu, 2 years ago on the corruption of the ANC
The African National Congress, the party of both Nelson Mandela and Jacob Zuma, is taking a beating. The ANC faces accusations of failing to tackle the AIDS epidemic, allowing sky rocketing unemployment among blacks, and of widespread corruption.
