Zuma vs Mbeki

A friend (thanks Chris!) alerted me to this fascinating analysis of the fight between Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma published on Moneyweb.

Hey Pierre,

There's quite an interesting quote towards the end of that Moneyweb article: "Would Mbeki really be centralising control over the judiciary if he thought that in a few years he was going to be in retirement?"

This is actually an area I don't really have much insight into - just what is happening re. the exective asserting control over the judiciary? I'm aware that there were some very controversial proposals on the table, but my understanding was that Mbeki scuppered those?
