One third of the South African Cabinet resigned yesterday. Eleven ministers. Plus some deputies.
A very good blog to read to get a legal view of what's happening (and that which has lead up the things this far), is Constitutionally Speaking, which is maintained by a South African law professor who addresses issues surrounding South African politics in very clear terms.
It is disturbing to watch what is happening to my country. I respect Mr. Mbeki's example, however, to other African leaders in stepping down when his party asked him to, even though I don't agree with their reasoning for asking him to resign.
I have no idea what is lying ahead for my country. No-one knows. We can only speculate. And the speculations aren't good right now.
I pray that good will somehow come forth from this political crisis.
