Mbeki's letter to Zuma

"Dear Jacob"

Read the full transcript of Mbeki's correspondence with Jacob Zuma (PDF). It is tinged with the usual vindictiveness, but after his dismissal can we really blame Mbeki for not wanting to get dirty on the campaign trail? It is staggering that Zuma's ANC thought that he would.

Mbeki is walking a delicate line. He knows that if he were to endorse the breakaway faction he could jeopardise the whole project. But he is not completely distancing himself from the 'real' ANC either.

It will be interesting to see what Mr. Mbeki does in the next few months. Do not expect him to keep as quiet as he has over the last few weeks though.
