Thabo Mbeki has, I'm pleased to see, once again ruled out the possibility of amending the Constitution so as to stand for a third term of office. If he keeps his word, then South Africa would have had three democratically elected rulers within 15 years. I stand to be corrected, but I imagine that that would be some sort of record for an African state. Increasingly, the more pressing question seems to be who the next President will be. Southern Cross has pondered this question before so I'm not going to revisit it here. But I'm hoping that the post-election cabinet will provide some clues.
