 Newsvine - Why Jacob Zuma's fall from grace is inevitable
But for some reason Zuma, apart from dipping his fingers in the cash pot, also invited the ire of the ANC top brass and he was slowly being ostracized from what has become known as the ANC right.
The charge turned out to be nonsense and mainly displayed Zuma's capacity for bad judgement, but it caused a media frenzy, not to mention fueled the cries of Zuma supporters that he is being persecuted in an ANC conspiracy.
Jacob Zuma's saga is going to be historic, partly because of the succession debate, but really because it's the first sign that all is not well at the ruling party.

Zuma, meanwhile, always seems to be in the soup for matters related to ethics or crime or nefariousness.
His are problems of integrity. It is hard to determine which is worse, though for the sake or argument I’d maintain that in a democratic system it is easier to rectify incompetence than corruption among leaders.
Even as Zuma has shown a fairly deft political touch on many of the issues facing the country, especially compared to Thabo Mbeki’s tin ear, it is still disquieting to hear talk from Mbeki’s anointed successor of the ANC being the inevitable outcome of divinely sanctioned rule destined to endure forever.

 Jacob Zuma - The 2008 TIME 100 - TIME
Jacob Zuma and Thabo Mbeki were once friends and allies, but they fell out around 2002, allegedly because Mbeki, South Africa's inscrutable President, suspected that Zuma was plotting to replace him.
When Zuma was dismissed from the deputy presidency and later charged with corruption and rape, his followers were convinced that their man was the victim of an Mbeki-inspired vendetta.
