    Thabo Mbeki.

    He was so smart that most of the south african public couldn't relate to him and couldn't understand his proposals of economic reform.

    Here's his brief history:

    In the late 1960s Mbeki began moving

    rapidly up the ANC hierarchy. He worked

    for the ANC in London (1967–70) and

    underwent military training in the Soviet

    Union (1971). In 1971 he served in Lusaka,

    Zambia, as assistant secretary to its

    Revolutionary Council, becoming the

    youngest member of the national executive

    (1975) and political secretary to President

    Oliver Tambo (1978).

    Thabo mbeki. He was smarter. Not a 3rd grade dropout.

    Both can kiss my @ss.

    I tell you why. This comparison can be likened to: "Which dog $hit smells better between an Alsatian and a pitbull?". At the end of the day, its still $hit you smelling.

    Whilst it might be true that Thabo has a 'cleaner' record than Zuma, that only means he was smarter about his questionable hiding things better. I for one, do not believe that he is a honest man.

    I dont listen to radio, I dont watch TV. I dont care for propaganda or politics. Phuck your democracy.
