According to the M&G, the top five names on the ANC's list are Thabo Mbeki, Jacob Zuma, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Kader Asmal and Trevor Manuel. So, assuming that this won't change, it seems that Jacob Zuma won't be shunted to KZN after all. Should we then assume that one of these individuals is in line for the presidency after Mbeki? I tend to think, or maybe its just wishful thinking on my part, that Jacob Zuma is an unlikely choice, as is Kader Asmal (who also, I think, has health problems). That leaves Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and Trevor Manuel. But does Manuel really have a shot at the presidency? The most likely candidate must be Dlamini-Zuma.
