Ray Hartley Analyses Which of the ANC’s ’94 Top 20 Still Support Jacob Zuma

How to Fix South AfricaIn an article for Times LIVE Ray Hartley, author of How to Fix South Africa, looks back at the ANC’s national election list of 1994, and evaluates who is still in support of President Jacob Zuma.

Nelson Mandela topped the list, with his preferred successor Cyril Ramaphosa second, and Thabo Mbeki third. In the 20 years since South Africa’s first democratic election, six of the original 20 have passed away. And since the Nkandla scandal, Hartley writes, Zuma has found friendship to be fleeting.

In the two decades since the list was released, much water has passed under the ANC’s bridge. Six of those in the top 20 – Mandela, Joe Slovo, Albertina Sisulu, Steve Tshwete, Dullah Omar and Chris Dlamini – have died.

Of the remaining 14, only four can be said to be “loyal” to President Jacob Zuma.
