Scent of a Woman: Could South Africa have a female president next?
The debate hasn’t really started yet but it’s only a matter of time. President Jacob Zuma is serving his last term in South Africa’s top job, and the ANC will need to start discussing who will replace him. If past experience is anything to go by, succession debates begin as soon as the afterglow of national elections fades. This time around there will be a new factor to consider: the possibility of South Africa’s first woman president. The ANC Woman’s League clearly lacks ambition and confidence to push this debate in the ANC. That push might, however, come from a different quarter. By RANJENI MUNUSAMY.
