Mbeki has some good points, too

Congratulations to comrade Zuma for being chosen president of the ANC. Well done and we all wish him luck.

People say (President Thabo) Mbeki was not so good and did not communicate with the people.

That might be true, but we trust that Zuma will be able to unite the ANC and country.

Getting rid of Mbeki and other officials could be a blessing in disguise - but the question is, will his successor bring happiness to everyone?

Being a president is like being a coach in this country. They love you when you start but will soon say bad things about you.

Mark my word, Zuma will soon be in hot water with the same people who claim that he's better than Mbeki.

They will soon find flaws and faults and forget that they had praised him.

Mbeki was good with certain things - the child grants, Soweto streets are all paved, free books at schools and houses

Learnerships are the best of all, with millions of students having been employed as a result .

I pray to God to give Zuma strength in his duties and trust that there will be peace in his cabinet.

Only Jehova can make a miracle for our government. I trust the government starts each day with a religious song and prayer.

Pat Manana, Soweto
