"South African President Thabo Mbeki's decision to sack his deputy, Jacob Zuma, was one of his toughest political calls. Was he to retain a popular member of his government, or to send out a firm signal against corruption? In the end, it was clean government that won the day, attracting widespread praise for the president. "In his address to a joint sitting of parliament, Mr Mbeki took pains to make clear his responsibilities as president in a case that is unprecedented in South Africa's 11 years of democracy" (Pearce 2005a:1).
