Finally ANC president Jacob Zuma has had his day in court and the court has vindicated him. I think Zuma's critics should be satisfied because the courts that favoured Zuma were not kangaroo courts converging somewhere under the morula trees.

Finally ANC president Jacob Zuma has had his day in court and the court has vindicated him. I think Zuma's critics should be satisfied because the courts that favoured Zuma were not kangaroo courts converging somewhere under the morula trees.

And the judges who took the decision are well schooled in the statutes of the country. Zuma knows and understands the laws of the country and he was prepared to exhaust all avenues to clear his name and his way to the Union Buildings next year. Those who have been pushing for Zuma to have his day in court should have spent their energies on developing the country and left him to focus on preparing for next year's election and his ascension to the presidency.

Now the ANC, united as it was before Polokwane, can focus on electioneering .

I once said that Zuma has God on his side and every great person in the Bible has gone through challenges worse than the ones he went through.

I suspect that under the leadership of Zuma we are heading for the days of glory and prosperity.
