South African elections

It has been interesting to see the coverage of the South African elections on the news (together with the comic twists on a host of other sites!) The latest news about the defacing of ANC posters, while sad in some ways really made for some great comic relief - see the Helen Zille meets the easter bunny on the Wonkie cartoon blog today.

I can certainly sympathise with the many locals that feel that South Africa has moved one step closer to becoming South Africa the Banana Republic. Having lived through the Zimbabwe ordeal first-hand I can't say I'm impressed with the turn of events in SA right now - it all seems way too familiar for my liking!
